The Brabourne Stadium is a cricket ground in the Indian city of Mumbai. The Stadium is owned by the Cricket Club of India (CCI). Brabourne Stadium is India's first long permanent sporting location. The North Stand of the Brabourne located the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) head office and the 1983 Cricket World Cup award until 2006 when both were shifted to the newly built Cricket Center at the nearby Wankhede Stadium.
The stadium has a pavilion and three public stands, namely the West Stand, North Stand and East Stand. The three public stands face the club house from three different ends of the ground and are protected by cavernous, low rooftops.
Brabourne hosted 17 Test matches between 1948 and 1973, starting with two matches against the West Indies in India's first home series after the war in 1948–49. The first test to produce a result at the Brabourne was the fourth it hosted, when India beat Pakistan in 1952. India won their first ever Test series after taking a 2–1 lead on the basis of this victory. Vijay Hazare scored a hundred in each of his four test match appearances at the ground, the most by any player.
