The Ageas Bowl is an ECB-accredited Test match ground qualified to host matches of the highest level up to, and including, key England Series’ such as The Ashes.
Since the ground was finished in 2001 it has provided the backdrop to some of the most dramatic scenes of the British summer as the venue for multiple Twenty20 Finals Days, International T20 fixtures, One-Day Internationals and, for the first time in its history, an England Test match in 2011.
With a maximum capacity of 25,000 for major matches, The Ageas Bowl, while it cannot compete with the history and tradition of a ground like Lord’s, certainly represents the future of international cricket in the UK.
Over the coming seasons, cricket fans across the South can look forward to an England v India Test as well as ODIs against Australia, New Zealand and Pakistan and a Twenty20 International against Sri Lanka. The full list is as follows:
