Kensington Oval

The Kensington Oval is one of the most imposing and impressive sports grounds in the Caribbean. The total seating capacity of the old stadium was 15,000. But now it has turned into massive number of 28,000. It is one of the favoured grounds of Sir Don Bradman. The pitches of Kensington oval are generally bouncy and fast, but usually favour the batsmen. It was established in the year 1871. The flood light facility was not there up to 2009, but now it has massive milky lights to host matches day and night. The two famous ends of the ground are Joel Garner End and Malcolm Marshall End. It has a glorious history of 120 years with all kinds of actions (county, domestic and international matches) and locally it is referred as “The Mecca”. The stadium was closed down in 2004-05 and bulldozed in so that a new sports ground could be constructed at the cost of 135 million US dollars to organize world cup matches. Kensington has a great history. It hosted the very first English team’s tour in1895, the first joint West-Indies squad (against Melbourne 1910-11) and also hosted the first test of West Indies 1930. This test made records abundantly. Sir Andrew Sandham hit 325 runs on this ground.
