    Best Ground In World

    In My opinion the MCG is the best, as i have attended there with 90000 other fans on Boxing Day.
    I have also attended Lords which is full of rich tradition and lives up the the reputation.
    I know the atmosphere in the Sub-Continent would be amazing, as would sitting in the Granstand at the carribean. But What is the Best Cricket Ground in the World?
    Eden park comes to mind too as does the Oval, SCG, Adelaide oval

    Seeing as I've only been to Sabina Park I'd say that.

    I firstly look to English and Australian grounds. Lords is the home of cricket, although you can make an argument the slopes there are annoying. Edgbaston has been the home of the best cricket, both ODI and Test I've ever seen.

    In Australia there's only one choice for me, the SCG. Not a seamers wicket, but the stands look so beautiful and traditional. Lords has ugly new structures, while the SCG sort of blends stands that are 100 years old etc. Great cricket can be played there too.

    There was a stadium in India that stood out when I saw an India vs. Australia ODI that had about 110,000 people there. That was an awesome atmosphere that felt like a world cup game. That was special.

    Nothing should be mentioned from New Zealand. Eden Park is the worst ground in the world for international cricket. Some of Pakistan's grounds are out of the city, which hurts them.

    There's been so many great grounds in South Africa that I can't remember which ones I like.

    Its Eden Garden Calcutta, no other ground can match it. Its extremely beautiful, one of the biggest in the world and the number of spectators who watch the match in the ground are unparallel in the entire cricket world.Also the spectators are very sporting and appeciate good cricket.

    The MCG isn't a cricket ground, it's a concrete stadium...

    The Adelaide Oval is my favourite Aus ground.

    No one in their right mind would nominate Eden Park as one of the best grounds in the world.
