5 of the most spectacular cricket grounds we’ve played at over the years

We’ve played on some great grounds down the years, Swansea’s historic St Helen’s, Spye Park in Wiltshire and good old Dundonald Rec in Wimbledon

Pretty ... a thatched pavilion at Spye Park

We’ve played on some great grounds down the years, here’s the best:

1. St Helen’s County Ground, Swansea

Historic ... St Helen's in Swansea

Way back on our first tour we played at the historic St Helen’s County Ground where Sir Gary Sobers famously hit 6 sixes in an over. We didn’t fare quite so well and were bowled out for 70.

2. Spye Park, Wiltshire

Rare outing ... Couldrey goes for a run

Our 2014 tour took us to Wiltshire on the Sunday to play at Spye Park, a private estate owned by the man behind Nando’s. It was stunning, but – as is a common theme – most of us were too hungover to enjoy it. James rather spoils this pic of course…

3. Battersea Park

Is there anywhere more spectacular than our home, the great Bat Park? With the power station in the background the ground where we played our first match is incredible.

4. Kew Cricket Club, west London

One of the best grounds in London, no doubt.

5. The Gents, Dundonald Rec

Isn't it pretty ... the gents

Well it does look nice when there’s a rainbow.
