  • Excellent Cricket Stadium. Loved it as a kid, loves it as an adult. Many international cricket tournaments are played at the stadium, from IPL to World cup.
  • Beautiful ground to watch a test match. Very friendly atmosphere. Great value with plenty to eat and drink. Local cafe round the corner does great curries and snacks.
