The Sir Vivian Richards Stadium is on North Sound, Antigua, and is half way between the airport and the capital of St Johns. It was build ahead of the 2007 World Cup, amid much protest as it replaced the iconic Antigua Recreation Ground as the island’s premier venue.
Still the most famous, and embarrassing, moment for the ground came in 2009 when England visited. There were only 10 balls bowled before the match was abandoned, as the outfield was essentially a sand dune and made bowling run ups impossible. That match, farcical as it was, is included in all the stats below apart from wickets per Test.
