before the March 2012 ticket price farce, I'd have been pushing Galle forward

Have to say I like the look of the Dharamsala ground.
My favourite has probably been the Adelaide Oval but, as with Galle, it seems that the authorities are trying to tarnish that memory.

I enjoyed the article but when it came to my own I was stumped.
So many grounds have such evocative reasonsfor being memorable. For a historical presence - Lords, majesty of size MCG, scenic Newlands etc etc.
Just embarassed I can't think of a single reason to even mention OT.

Well there is clearly no question about this.
The best ground in the world is obviously at Duntisbourne Abbotts, the scene of my 84 not out.
Anyone who thinks otherwise is a fool.
