Nehru stadium hosted its first international cricket match only in 1983 during the West Indies tour of India. Since then this premier venue in the north eastern part of the country has hosted only a few more ODI's. One of the main drawbacks at Guwahati is the heavy early morning fog and the light that fades early in the evenings - both of which shorten the day's play considerably. Of the nine ODI's played at the Nehru stadium, India has featured in six with a 3 - 3 win loss record.

It is used both for football/soccer and cricket matches. The stadium holds 25,000 people and was built in 1962.
