    Your Favourite Cricket Stadium Name

    Bit of a fun thread as I was just going over some ground histories and thought - The Wanderers is a name worthy of the occasions that have taken place over there. Absolutely love it.

    What's yours? Let's hear some unusual ones.

    Speed Sheep Draft - Hutton, Hunte, Hammond, Lara, Sobers, Miller, Waite+, Lindwall, Warne, Gillespie, McGrath.
    Old Timer's Draft - Rowan, Rae, Headley, Nourse, Worrell, Sinclair, Atkinson, Sherwell+, Vogler, Schwarz, Francis.
    Test-only ODI Draft - Hobbs, Maclaren, G Pollock, Hazare, Harvey, Waite+, Constantine, Rhodes, Cowie, McDonald, Farnes.
    Losers Draft - Hutton, Hanif, Kanhai, G Pollock, Sobers, Laxman, Waite+, Streak, Fazal, Waqar, Chandra

    I've always liked Edgbaston, Trent Bridge and Headingley. Proper names without 'Oval', 'Stadium' or 'Ground' in them.

    What do people who live in those places call them?

    Just found they refer to the places also. Always thought they were names of the grounds.
    Never mind.

    "This is a clash of strategy. And of methods, culture and politics. This is a new-era rivalry. Not as ancient as the Ashes, or as passionate as India-Pakistan. Two countries that are so different, yet share rampant egotism, high self-opinion and a belief that being born in their country is superior to other births. This brings together a belligerent bunch of brats, bullies and braggers."- Jarrod Kimber

    If you live in Headingley you refer to the stadium as "t'crickit"

    as in 'Turn right at Clarendon Road and go up past t'crickit, then go left at Sainsbury's' or 'have you seen that godawful press box up at t'crickit'?

    Eden Gardens, even if the name is utterly misguiding.
