The Gabba Cricket Stadium

By | October 15, 2022

The Brisbane Cricket Ground aka The Gabba is a very iconic stadium in Australia that has hosted some of the best cricket matches.

Established in 1895, it can host 41000 people in it. The Gabba is situated in Brisbane, Queensland. It looks aesthetically pleasing on  sunny days and especially in the evening time.

The Gabba hosted its first match in 1931, a test match between Australia and South Africa. Its dimensions are 170×149 and it has gone through several redevelopments since 1993.

The pitch here is one of the most competitive in Australia to play on. It generally offers bounce and pacers get the advantage here. A quick bouncer would surely trouble the batters. It is one of the few stadiums in Australia that doesn’t host drop-in pitches.

ODI and test cricket have been played here abundantly. It has only hosted 6 T20Is up until now and the team batting first has won more.

It has also hosted some other sports as well such as Rugby, Soccer and American Rules football matches.
