Favourite Oval

Postby Alviro Patterson » Thu Jan 10, 2019 4:01 am

The Oval is symbolic when it comes to cricket grounds and there are a number of them around the world.

For a bit of fun, which is your favourite Oval ground?

Showing strong bias, here, but there's a couple I don't know - and aren't the top two the same The Oval?

North Sydney Oval is lovely, big fig tree on the boundary, a couple of old stands from the SCG were dismantled and reconstructed over the harbour, and it still has a fair hill area.

But I voted Adelaide Oval.

It was the Adelaide Oval but the redevelopment has ruined it. University Oval, Dunedin.

Well observed GJ, a classic CF moment from me with that typographical error. Kennington Oval was supposed to be Kensington Oval :oops:

Got to be the Kensington Oval. The only one I've been to though.

Only ever been to Hagley Oval and University Oval. Often thought about going to Kia Oval, but not this year unless if Yorkshire have an away draw against Surrey in the Royal London Cup or T20 Blast knockout matches.
