Zohur Ahmed Chowdhury StadiumYear of Constructed:
Zohur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium, named after the prominent local leader, previously known as Chittagong Divisional Stadium, also known as Bir Shrestha Shahid Ruhul Amin Stadium Stadium. It is a sports venue located in the city of Chittagong in south-eastern Bangladesh. It became a Test cricket venue on February 27, 2006 when it hosted a Test match between Sri Lanka and Bangladesh.
Situated about half-an-hour outside the city centre, it 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 visit to the country.
