This is a repost of the article I published on the 10th of Jan, 2008 as I have added a new ground - Lahari Resorts.

In this post I will try and update the list of cricket grounds that i know in Hyderabad.
The grounds that I have listed till now are
- MCH Play ground, Ameerpet
Francis (Do not have the contact number but go to the ground and ask for him). The charges are Rs. 1100 for the ground. They do not charge for anything more. You get the ground from 9:00 AM to 4:00PM. The ground is small.
- Welfare Center, Sanath Nagar
Dhanraj Babu (+91 9394556356). The charges are Rs. 1100 for the ground. They charge you an additional Rs. 500 for the mat and Rs. 100 for cleaning and drawing lines and stuff. They are supposed to give you the ground from 9:00 AM to 4:00PM but what they do is that they pocket extra money from another team wanting to play and give the ground out to them for the remainder of the day assuming that you won't play for the whole day. So what happened the other day was that we started late so we were hurried into finishing the match. So start early and finish early is my advise. The ground is nice and big and you can have a proper match. For more information and pictures please read the following post Cricket Ground : Welfare Center, Sanath Nagar.
- NFC Ground, ECIL
- Air Force Ground 1, Begumpet
- Air Force Ground 2, Begumpet
- Lahari Resorts, Serilingampally
Excellent cricket turf wicket with a lush green outfield. You can play either during the day or under lights. We played during the day from 2:00 PM to 6:00 PM and it costed us Rs. 5000 for the ground. The price for the ground is steep but it is nice to play here once in a while since you have sight screens and a nice lush green outfield where you can dive. It has a nice pavillion from where you can watch the match. Photos will be available soon in another post.
