Set at a prime location, the Antigua Recreation Ground is central to travel facilities, making it ideal for international cricket.

Two of the stands have been named after past West Indian greats, Sir Vivian Richards and the late Andy Roberts. The atmosphere is always alive with high energy. Calypso music blasting from the speakers and a supportive crowd are integral parts of cricket in Antigua and typically representative of crickt in the region over the decades.

The Wicket:As flat as they come, it is no surprise that the ARG pitch has witnessed not one, but two world record innings. Both knocks by Brian Lara against England, the bowlers simply find no joy on the surface. The pitch starts off batsman-friendly and typically only gets more and more so.
