However, all the international as well as national cricket matches take place at the "Holkar Ground which is located at Race Course Road, Indore and a variety of different sports take activities at the Nehru Ground which also partially provides as the Head office of the Air-Force wing of the Western Command of the National Cadet Corps (India).

Nehru Ground, which sports a sculpture of Col. C.K. Nayudu, Indore's favorite son of that era, outside its main entrance as a concession to tradition.

The Ground accomplished infamy when a ODI held between Indian and Sri Lanka on 25 Dec 1997 was abandoned after the third over of the first innings.

The game was abandoned because pitch was risky for the players to play on. The match referee concurred and a 30-over exhibition match was organised to placate the restless audience.

The ground was suspended by ICC from holding matches for 2 years. The Stadium came back to host one last ODI match on 31 March 2001 where Sachin Tendulkar created record by becoming the first player to achieve 10,000 runs in ODI cricket.
