ST KITTS: WARNER PARK

Warner Park, St Kitts

Warner Park was the first new venue to be completed ahead of the showpiece and it hosted a Test and one-dayer when India visited the Caribbean last year.

The stadium in Basseterre will seat 10,000 during the group games but the island's population is only 35,000.

Most of the 5m needed to build the ground was provided by the Taiwanese government and another interesting factor is the lack of an east stand.

That is to allow the players to be cooled by winds from that direction.

Australia, South Africa, Scotland and the Netherlands will play their group A matches in St Kitts.

Local hero: The two most capped players to have emerged from the area hardly set international cricket alight.

Keith Arthurton (33 Tests, 105 ODIs) and Stuart Williams (31 Tests, 57 ODIs) were both dashing batsmen but their attacking styles were exposed at the highest level.
