Set amidst a picturesque backdrop of imposing hills, the Queen's Park Oval is one of the most scenic cricket venues in the West Indies. The Queen's Park Oval is also the largest of the lot with a seating capacity of 25,000. Home to the Queens Park Cricket Club since 1896, the stadium played host to some of the earliest English teams touring the Caribbean Islands.
The Queen's Park Oval stadium still retains its quaint old charm with
the first ever refurbishments taking place as late as 1952. The stadium
has witnessed its share of records, the most notable being the
successful run chase of 406 by the Indian team against Clive Llyod's
West Indies in 1976-77.
The Queens Park Oval cricket stadium will host the opening round Group
B matches of the 2007 ICC World Cup.
