- The first One Day International played under floodlights in Chepauk was between New Zealand and Australia in 1996. Further, in July 2005, the Executive Committee of the TNCA approved the establishment of a TNCA Cricket Academy. Apart from supplying free cricket balls to all the city and district teams, TNCA has also been helping the District Cricket Associations for laying of turf wickets and purchase of essential infrastructural equipments.
- The Tamil Nadu Cricket Association has thus been rendering yeoman service in building cricket infrastructure in the State, as also in inducing and shaping young and talented cricketers, many of whom have been picked up to represent India in the international arena.
