    Gabba used to be good when you'd be stuck in traffic on the side that allowed you to see all the action through the gaping hole in the stadium. Not the worst traffic jam to be in, tbh.

    The article was clearly written by an Aussie or a pom.

    EDIT: An Aussie, since Lords is fifth. My other guess was a troll/idiot but then I remembered Aussie covers this nicely as well.

    The Kotla has no business being on that list. It's a skeletal monstrosity.



    Honestly, it's got a face only an architect who's lost his spirit-level could love.

    Athlai doesn't lie. And he doesn't do sarcasm either, so you know it's true!

    Bankstown Oval

    Basin is THE best ground I've been to for watching cricket. However, the stands are incredibly ugly and I could quite imagine that for your average fan walking in for the first time, you'd think urgh. Of the grounds I've been to:

    Cricket Watching Experience

    1. Basin Reserve
    2. Pukekura Park
    3. Lord's
    4. MCG
    5. The Oval
    6. SCG
    7. Old Trafford
    8. The County Ground, Chelmsford
    9. The Rose Bowl, Southampton
    10. McLean Park
    11. Lancaster Park
    12. WetSpac Stadium
    13. Eden Park

    The Basin has a lot of things going for it. Taking in your own food, being able to play on the turf in the lunch break, the variety of seating. No big signs telling you what you're not allowed to do. Pukekura Park is similarly fantastic, but it is a little small for a really good match. Lord's a clear 3rd for mine. MCG, The Oval and SCG fairly close. MCG in particular depends on your seats somewhat. SCG let down by (certainly when I went there) not selling any alcohol at all and some of the stands have pretty poor views from what should be decent seats. The MCG walkup is superb, a real build up to the action ahead with people walking up from all directions. 7 -- 10 are all decent, but have significant flaws. McLean Park should be good, but it doesn't quite work for my money. The Rose Bowl was an absolute bitch to get to, meaning you often missed the start of the game.

    9,10 and 11 a long way adrift. Cricket shouldn't be played there IMO.

    Boult to Mathews, OUT, Caught at second slip! It was a length ball going across Angelo, who tried to hit it hard towards the leg side and got an outside edge that flew fast towards Guptill, who took a reflex catch in front of his face

    I was under the impression that my favourite ground was better than your favourite ground. But after reading this thread, I've come to realise that your favourite ground is actually better than my favourite ground.
