Kennington Oval, London

Kennington Oval, London

Also known as the Oval or the Kia Oval, the Kennington Oval has hosted 97 Test matches so far, starting from 1880. It was the first ground in England to host international Test cricket – a match won by England by five wickets against Australia. It is the stadium where the English cricket season traditionally ends. It also staged the first FA Cup final in 1872 and was the home of the same between 1874 and 1892. In 2005, a four tier grandstand, known as the OCS stand was built in place of four outdated stands to increase the stadium’s capacity to 23,000.
