Arnos Vale Posted by Hello

It is Independence Month In SVG so from time to time over this month am going to post a few things Vincy.Here is the beautiful Arnos Vale Playing Field which hosted its first international game in 1972 when the New Zealanders toured. Since then the Playing Field has been refurbished and has hosted several ODI's as well as having the distinction of being the first ground in the Windward Islands to host a test match. Arnos Vale has been a happy stomping ground for the West Indies as they have only lost one ODI game here to Pakistan and won about 14(rough estimate). The inaugural ODI was played in 1981 against England and Vincentians could not ask for a better game.Batting first west indies were skittled out for 127 with only Everton Mattis 62 and Desmond Haynes 34 making any score of note.England were then bowled out in the 49 th over for 127 ( Botham 60) with Croft (MOM) getting 6/15 off 9 overs. Amazingly earlier this year chasing Bangladesh's 144 the West Indies limped home in the 47th over with one wicket to spare. Another thriller I guess you can say or continuance of good fortune on this ground

so ya saying the wicket aint got no runs in it atall atall?
I saw Windies score over 300 once vs England so runs there man
i been to arnos vale for a regional match one time. cant remember who. went with mr ballantyne.
