Sabina Park profile

Sabina Park is located in the driest part of Kingston and, for a long period, had one of the hardest and quickest pitches in the Caribbean. This is not necessarily the case nowadays.

Like Warner Park, It underwent major renovations prior to the 2007 World Cup, when some of the ground’s atmosphere was arguably lost amid the increase in concrete structures.

With the Blue Mountains as a backdrop and Kingston Harbour to the South, Sabina Park is one of the most picturesque cricket grounds in the West Indies and, indeed, the world.

Garry Sobers 365 not out against Pakistan here is among the venue’s historic highlights, while 1998’s day-one abandonment of a Test between the West Indies and England due to a dangerous pitch is probably its lowest point.

What to look for when betting on matches at Sabina Park

In its formative years, Sabina Park churned out several draws in Test cricket. Since the turn of the century, though, this has very much become a ‘results’ pitch. In T20I and ODI cricket, this is a good pitch for chasing totals. Most of the teams who have batted second here have won in the last 10 years or so. When betting on the CPL, favouring the team batting second is among cricket’s popular bets.

This remains a high-scoring ground, even if conditions have slowed somewhat over the years. In the Caribbean Premier League, the highest score in the history of the tournament has been struck here.
