Rose Bowl
Edgbaston - Birmingham The Oval - London The Rose Bowl - Southampton
The Rose Bowl hosted its maiden First Class match in 2001 and is the newest international venue in England.

Built at a cost of 20m it has only hosted two international matches but has already won over cricket fans, who love the impressive facilities.

The development has other facilities, including a golf course, to make sure there is a constant source of revenue.

When England play Sri Lanka on 17 September it will be the first time the Rose Bowl has hosted the national team.

Of the two matches held at the ground only one actually saw any play, with South Africa beating Zimbabwe by seven wickets in July 2003.

FACTFILE
Home team: Hampshire
ODIs: 2
Capacity: 9,000
The New Zealand v West Indies match in July 2004 was abandoned after the toss without a ball being bowled.

As a result the ground records are limited, with Makhaya Ntini's 4-45 for South Africa the best bowling figures.

South Africans Jacques Rudolph and Graeme Smith share highest score of 69, in Rudolph's case unbeaten.
