Picture of Shere Bangla National Stadium, Mirpur

One of the bigger stadiums of Bangladesh with a seating capacity of 25000 was established in 2006. The first test was played a year later between Bangladesh and India from May 25-27, 2007 and the first ODI was played between the home team and Zimbabwe on December 8, 2006. Although the shift from Bangabandhu to Mirpur was met with much anger, but Bangladesh needed a stadium reserved exclusively for cricket. The ground has excellent drainage facilities and the grassless plot next to the stadium is a ground for children to play with a tape-tennis ball every evening and morning.
