Day 279 of 365 Things to Do, See & Eat in Jamaica – Watch a Game of Cricket at Sabina Park

Sabina Park

The cricket ground at Kingston’s Sabina Park is the home of the Kingston Cricket Club. It is the only Test ground in the city. It was established in 1930 when hosting a visiting MCC team for the second Test in the first home series for the West Indies. The ground is one of the most important in the history of Test cricket and is the site of the first triple century in the game’s history. The George Hedley stand dominates the south end of the ground and can handle more than 6,000 fans. The “Party Stand” is a five-level concrete construction that includes broadcasting and player facilities, as well as upscale private viewing boxes. The Blue Mountains provide a backdrop to the ground’s north. In 2014, Sabina Park installed floodlights, so it can now host day or night matches. The Caribbean Premier League’s Jamaica Tallawahs play their home games there.
