Daren Sammy National Cricket Stadium profile
Previously known as the Beausejour Cricket Ground before being renamed after former West Indies captain Daren Sammy in 2016, this ground is situated in Gros Islet.
“I am truly honoured, I am humbled and blessed. Thank you, we always know St Lucians love their own,” said Sammy at the time of the renaming. He had led the West Indies to two World Twenty20 (since renamed the T20 World Cup) in 2012 and 2016.
Completed in 2002, the stadium staged its first Test match a year later, when Sri Lanka toured. This ground was also the first to host a day-night cricket match in the Caribbean.
It is sprawled across 22 acres, with one of the stands named after West Indies batsman Johnson Charles.
What to look for when betting on matches at Daren Sammy National Cricket Stadium
Through the 2010s, there was a period when teams who batted first in T20I cricket at this ground won the match. The trend has since changed, with this becoming a good ground for chasing totals. Captains who win the toss, then, are not shy to bowl first. This is a good market indicator for those who bet on CPL cricket – and want to place a cricket bet shortly after the toss.
The same can be said for ODI cricket at this ground. In Test cricket, though, teams have generally struggled to bat well in the fourth innings here – but that’s not necessarily unusual for all Test cricket grounds in the West Indies.
