Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Kensington Oval is a 15,000-capacity sports stadium located in Bridgetown on the island nation of Barbados. Used solely for cricket, the Kensington Oval hosted its first Test in 1930 and its first One Day International (ODI) in 1985. The ground has seen 45 Tests-all including the West Indies-along with 28 ODIs, and has been the scene of 97 Test and 13 ODI centuries. West Indian Clifford Roach became the first player to score a century at the venue, managing 122 runs in the ground's inaugural match. Two other batsmen, Andy Sandham and George Headley from England and the West Indies respectively, also scored centuries in this match. However, it took a further four Tests until West Indian Clyde Walcott scored the next hundred, 220 in 1954.show more
