Carisbrook

Carisbrook was a sports stadium in Dunedin, New Zealand. It had a capacity of 29,000. Until its closure in 2004 for cricket, the ground had hosted Test cricket since its first match in 1955 when New Zealand played England.[1] Ten Test matches were played at the ground[2] along with 21 One Day Internationals (ODIs), the first of which was in 1974 when New Zealand played Australia.[3]

West Indian Everton Weekes became the first man to score a Test century at Carisbrook when he made 123 against New Zealand in 1956. Bryan Young's score of 267 not out, made against Sri Lanka in 1997, remained the highest score seen at the ground. Only two players made a double century at the ground. Overall, 10 test centuries were recorded from Carisbrook.[4]

Five ODI centuries were scored at Carisbrook, the first by West Indian Vivian Richards who scored 119 from 113 deliveries against New Zealand in 1987. The highest score achieved at the ground was 122 not out made by Nathan Astle against England in 2002.[5]
