It became a Test cricket venue on 27 February 2006 when it hosted a Test match between Sri Lanka and Bangladesh. It hosted two group matches of the 2011 Cricket World Cup. It has seating capacity of around 20,000.Currently, it is the main cricket venue of the port city. Previously, the M. A. Aziz Stadium was the main cricket venue of Chittagong; however, it focuses on football now. It is also home to the Chittagong Vikings, the local franchise in the Bangladesh Premier League.HistorySituated about half-an-hour's drive outside the city centre, the Chittagong Divisional Stadium was one of the five purpose-built cricket grounds established in the run-up to the 2004 Under-19 World Cup. It was finally granted full international status in January 2006, ahead of Sri Lanka's tour to the country. The stadium itself is a concrete bowl set in acres of prime agricultural land, with a three-tier pavilion providing the focal point. The stadium provides views of beautiful lush trees, the port, and ships on the coast. It had floodlights installed prior to the world cup, only the fourth cricket ground in Bangladesh, giving the ability to host day/night cricket matches.
