    Most beautiful Cricket Grounds

    I know there is a thread on this but I could not find it anywhere!

    Having just got back from these two grounds, which are within about half an hour by car of each other, I wondered if others would agree, and if not which grounds beat them?

    1. Boland Bank Park, Paarl


    2. Newlands, Cape Town



    While the brewery spoils the view, the chicks up front more than make up for it..

    I'm going to have to say the majority of the village cricket grounds that i've played at in my league....
    no stands so therefore everything is green with fields all around....

    Yes I've seen that ground in Lynmouth, is it the one thats next to the cliffs? My favourite grounds are:
    Himachal Prasad (Dharamshala) in the Himalayas
    Bagh-e-Jinnah, Lahore
    and the Azad Maidan in Mumbai (yes it's not even a FC ground but it is spectacular)

    Yup, fingers crossed Exeter Uni IV will get a trip there at some point - a new place to add to my list of duck venues...

    Does not compare with Hawaii's cricket ground. Perfect weather year round, mountains on one side, clear water on teh other...cruise ships pass by every little bit. Never hot. Ill try to find a pic.

    Dharmashala.

    The WACA is the best place I've been to to watch cricket.

    I made my Voltman debut at Queenstown - stunning ground.

    The University Oval in Dunedin is also very nice.
