Venue guides - Hobart
Bellerive Oval

England make a single trip to Australia's sixth international venue, and then only for a one-day game against New Zealand on 16 January.

England have never featured in a Test here, although they faced Australia A in chilly conditions on the last tour.

One-day games at Bellerive Oval are usually low-scoring, although Australia hit 344-7 against Zimbabwe in 2004.

Aussie captain Ricky Ponting plays for hosts Tasmania, the last state side to gain first-class status in 1977.

Barmy Army tip: If you cannot afford to fly over the Bass Strait, then it is all aboard the Spirit of Tasmania I or II for the nine-hour crossing from Melbourne to Devonport leaving at nine o'clock, morning and evening.

England's record here: Australia won by seven runs in England's only previous one-day international here, in 2003, despite an opening stand of 165 between Marcus Trescothick and Nick Knight.
