With a capacity of around 67,000 spectators, Eden Gardens has been called "cricket's answer to the Colosseum".

It comes third after the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) and the ANZ Stadium - located in the Sydney Olympic Park - in terms of capacity.

Eden Gardens, one of the premier grounds in India, hosted its first Test in 1934 and its first One-Day International in 1987 - when India faced Pakistan.
