Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium

Description

The Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium is situated about half-an-hour outside the city centre. The Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium was one of the five purpose-built cricket grounds established in the run-up to the 2004 Under-19 World Cup. The ground was finally given ICC approval to stage international cricket and became the 153rd Test ground in February 2006 when Sri Lanka visited to the country.

The Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium is formerly known as Bir Shrestha Shahid Ruhul Amin Stadium, Chittagong. The Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium itself is an unremarkable concrete bowl set in acres of prime agricultural land, with a three-tier pavilion providing the focal point. The Stadium has a capacity of only 20,000 people. The Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium hosted two matches of the 2011 ICC World Cup.

It hosted its first test very recently on 2006 – February 28-March 3 between the home team and Sri Lanka and the first ODI in the same year between Bangladesh and South Africa on February 26.
