BARBADOS:
KENSINGTON OVAL

The Kensington Oval, Barbados

Originally opened in 1871, the historic Kensington Oval in Bridgetown is being revamped for the tournament.

Capacity will be increased from 15,000 to 28,000 to host matches in the Super 8s stage and the final on 28 April.

The ground staged the first home Test for West Indies in 1930; the hosts were unbeaten there from 1948 to 1993 and beat Pakistan in the last Test in 2005.

There has been plenty in the pitch for batsmen and bowlers, although the last few one-dayers have been high-scoring.

Local hero: Arguably the greatest all-rounder the game has ever seen, Sir Garry Sobers was an elegant and destructive batsman, could bowl left arm spin and pace, and was a brilliant fielder.
