The Adelaide Oval is within easy walking distance of Adelaide city centre.
Dating back to 1871, the Oval hosted its first Test Match between England and Australia in 1884 and now hosts all manner of events including international rugby and football and large scale music concerts.
Even after a massive redevelopment between 2008 and 2014 the Adelaide Oval is still considered to be one of the most attractive cricket grounds in the world, boasting views of St Peter’s Cathedral and a stylish Edwardian scoreboard nestled among huge fig trees that are over 100 years old.
There have been 75 Test matches played at the Adelaide Oval and England have faced Australia in 31 Test matches with the following results:
- AUSTRALIA: 17 wins
- ENGLAND: 9 wins
- DRAWN: 5
The 2nd Test in Adelaide in December 2010 gave England their 100th Test match win against Australia helping them on their way to winning the 2010/2011 series. Full ground statistics are available by following the link below:
