Lal Bahadur Shastri Stadium

The Lal Bahadur Shastri Stadium  is a cricket stadium in Hyderabad, India. The stadium was originally known as Fateh Maidan and was renamed in 1967 after Lal Bahadur Shastri, India's former Prime Minister.
Floodlights were introduced in 1992 during the Hero Cup match between the West Indies and Zimbabwe. The Stadium was the home ground for the Hyderabad cricket team.
In 2005, the use of Lal Bahadur Shastri Stadium for International cricket was discontinued when Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium built across town hosted a ODI Match between India and South Africa. The stadium is now hosting Indian Cricket League matches and is the home ground for the 2008 Edelweiss 20's Challenge winners Hyderabad Heroes.
