ST LUCIA: BEAUSEJOUR CRICKET GROUND

Beausejour Cricket Ground, St Lucia

The Beausejour Cricket Ground, which first staged international cricket matches in 2002, will play host to England's games in the group stage.

It is set in 22 acres beneath the hills near the tourist resort of Rodney Bay and its 12,000 capacity will be raised to 20,000 with temporary stands.

Batsmen have done well at the venue, with nine team totals of 250 or more in the eight one-dayers held there.

The three Tests, all drawn, have also been high-scoring affairs.

All the group C matches involving New Zealand, England, Kenya and Canada will be played here, plus the second semi-final.

Local hero: Darren Sammy, with two ODIs to his name, is the only St Lucia cricketer to have represented the Windies.

As far as the venue is concerned, hard-hitting Jamaican Chris Gayle has enjoyed the most success with 417 runs in eight ODIs. He is also the leading wicket-taker with nine.
