West Indies Cricket Grounds and Ovals

The West Indies, home of the 2007 Cricket World Cup boasts many of the most beautiful and scenic cricket grounds in the world. Most have a long history and tradition in Windies cricket and have been witness to many a legendary performance.

 

Antigua Recreation Ground
Renowned as one of the most lively Test venues in the world for its lively and  exuberant fans, the Recreation Ground saw its first test match in 1981 when  England were the opposing team.

Arnos Vale
Arnos Vale became the most recent ground in the West Indies to be granted test status and held its first test in June 1997, West Indies v Sri Lanka, which ended in a draw.

Bourda
The only test match ground in Guyana, Bourda is also one of the largest in the Caribbean with a seating capacity of 22,000.

Kensington Oval
Administrative home of the Barbados Cricket Association, Kensington Oval was the location for the first test match ever played in the West Indies.

Queens Park Oval
Seating 25,000 comfortably, Queens Park Oval in the picturesque Port of Spain, Trinidad, is the largest Test ground in the West Indies.

Sabina Park
Set amidst the spectacular backdrop of the world famous Blue Mountains, Sabina Park is actually set in one of the driest parts of Jamaica, and can therefore prove as much of a test for the groundsmen as batsmen.
