Brabourne Stadium is one of the oldest cricket grounds in India, having been established in 1937 and a ton of international matches were played here before the advent of Wankhede Stadium.
Wankhede Stadium was built a stone’s throw from Brabourne, following a dispute between the Mumbai Cricket Association and Brabourne Stadium. Following this, most of international cricket has been played at Wankhede Stadium but this doesn’t mean that Brabourne Stadium isn’t used for any cricket.
