Adelaide Oval Cricket Ground

By | October 15, 2022

Adelaide Oval is a vivid stadium in Parklands, Australia which was built and established in 1871. It is 167m long and 124m wide and has the capacity to fit 53,500 people inside it.

It has been the home ground of South Australia since 1871. In its initial form, it was simply yet a beautiful stadium. There have been several redevelopments that have happened here since it was built. The latest renovation was done here during 2011-14 and few changes were made here.

The Adelaide Oval hosted its maiden match in 1875. That was an ODI match between Australia and West Indies and the very first test match played here was between Australia and England.

The pitch here is a batter friendly pitch and the bowlers get a very little advantage here due to the flat pitch. It started hosting drop-in pitches after 2013. The average first innings score in T20I format here is 155 and only 8 T20Is have been played here until now. 3 were won by batting first while 4 by the team bowling first.
