Providence Stadium profile
The Providence Stadium is situated fewer than 10 kilometres from the capital of Georgetown – and was built specifically for the 2007 World Cup in the Caribbean. It has also been known as the Guyana National Stadium after replacing Bourda as the national stadium.
Although built by the Guyanese government, substantial financial assistance was received by the Indian government. Flooding in 2005 delayed its construction before eventual completion.
This is the venue that witnessed Sri Lanka fast bowler Lasith Malinga take four wickets with four consecutive deliveries against South Africa.
Football and other sports are hosted here, too, and the stadium complex also has a shopping mall, luxury apartments and the Princess International Hotel.
What to look for when betting on matches at Providence Stadium
The Providence Stadium is among the newest in the Caribbean, so has a brief history for those who bet on cricket in the West Indies to draw on.
Both its Tests have been won by the team batting last, but the same cannot be said for the most recent ODIs here. Teams who bat last here have generally been unable to win here in the intermediate format here since 2010.
In the Caribbean Premier League, Providence only features once each in the highest and lowest team totals.
