Worth watching IPL matches. In case possible take lounge or stand club stand. You will love the atmosphere. You can also go inside and have a glimpse certain days. Outside food and drinks not allowed. Quality of food is below average litterally local taste.

As we know the best ever cricket stadium in the world. The best facilities and everything is best about it. It is located near Esplanade metro, but bus from all route are also available here. It is very easy to access, and the greatest cricketing experience you will have. The bathrooms are very very clean, and water is free. But internet connection is a big problem there.

From my childhood, I have a natural affinity for Eden Gardens, not only for sports, but also for the wonderful crowd that gathers in any sporting event here. Starting from clashes of the titans (East Bengal vs. Mohun Bagan), to cricket matches (all forms, be it tests, ODI, T-20 or IPL), the crowd that gathers here is simply unbelievable and is unparalleled anywhere in the world. I get nostalgic every time I visit Edens.

Eden Gardens is one of the few biggest cricket grounds in the world. The atmosphere will always be electrified. The crowd in this part of the world is extremely passionate for cricket. During day night cricket match the stadium looks so elegant. If the home team is winning one can see for fire torches are lit up for celebration.
But the infrastructure needs a huge improvement. Lack of food variety, toilet cleanliness, unavailability of drinking water, non-training of stadium volunteers to handle crowd when stadium has the capacity to hold 100K people.

This is like the lungs of Kolkata. Very well constructed designed building and sports complex with flood light night games of cricket. Its one of worlds largest capacity cricket grounds.
This whole area is full of football fields, hockey grounds and so much of greens. The river hoogly is just few minutes walk and offers a very elegant view plus a permanently berthed ship restaurant. Walk by the river a must. Clean nice and great view.
