Historically, it is known for producing belters, where batsmen can play through the line on even-paced wickets. However, in recent times, spinners have made their mark. It can be exemplified by some low-scoring games in the 2013-14 Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy.

Venue Description

ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium, located in Pothinamallayya Palem, Visakhapatnam, is surrounded by the blissful facade of the picturesque hills and the leafy ramble of trees swaying in breeze. It is the home ground of Sunrisers Hyderabad in the Indian Premier League. The stadium built in 2003 is known for its excellent drainage facilities. The well-manicured, lush-green outfield at the ground has also come in for praise. The seating capacity is expected to be increased to 50,000. In fact, the Test status was also granted recently. It is the ninth ground to be awarded the Test status in India.

The first ever international match at this stadium took place between arch-rivals India and Pakistan in April 2005. It was a game in which MS Dhoni announced his arrival at the highest level with a blistering innings of 148. Since then, it has gone on to host five ODIs, one T20I and IPL fixtures related to Deccan Chargers in 2012. Sunrisers Hyderabad are expected to play three games in 2015 in the IPL.
