    Cricket stadiums

    Here you can post pictures or discuss your favourite cricket stadiums. Here's one I really love, it's the largest stadium in Kochi, India:

    Tree is a bit smaller these days, though (and contrary to popular belief, not always inside the boundary).

    Not because of it's beauty or anything, but I had the chance to play at broadhalfpenny down a few years ago on a school cricket tour. It was probably the most special ground I'd ever played on.

    Think South Africa probably has the most scenic ones.

    Dharamshala looks amazing, though the colours are a bit too gaudy.



    Personally think grounds without stands look awesome.

    I've watched games at four of South Africa's stadiums: Wanderers in Joburg, Supersport Park in Centurion, Newlands in Cape Town, and Willowmoore Park in Benoni.

    The first three are amazing, brilliant stadiums to watch cricket at, and normally have great atmospheres.

    At Newlands I watched the first day of the Test between South Africa and Sri Lanka in 2012. I would imagine that only first days at the MCG, SCG, and Lords are better. If you're a South African and a cricket fan that should be on your bucket list.

    that's cool to see actually.

    The basin is probably not the most amazing ground in the world, but it always has a nice atmosphere and generally good wickets.
