Chinnaswamy Stadium T20 records: The historic Bengaluru cricket stadium will host its eighth T20I today.
Tomorrow, the fifth T20I of South Africa’s current tour of India will be played at Bengaluru. The last match of the series, which was expected to be a dead rubber after South Africa won the first two T20Is, will suddenly be a series decider after India came back from behind to win the previous two T20Is.
India will play their sixth match in the shortest format at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in the eighth T20I. India has won two and lost three T20Is at this venue in their previous five encounters.

Chinnaswamy Stadium Bengaluru T20 stats

Kohli (2,762), AB de Villiers (1,991), Chris Gayle (1,813), Dhoni (631), and Robin Uthappa (590) are the top run scorers in Bengaluru’s T20 competition. De Kock, a South African wicket-keeper batsman who had a brief spell with RCB in the IPL, has done well at this stadium, amassing 463 runs in 11 T20 innings at an average of 46.30 and a strike rate of 147.45 with a century and three half-centuries.
Former Royal Challengers Bangalore players such as Chahal (57), R Vinay Kumar (32), Sreenath Aravind (30), Zaheer Khan (28) and Umesh Yadav (25) lead the list of top T20 wicket-takers in Bengaluru, just like the hitters.
