Set among gardens and trees and with the spire of St Peter's Cathedral peeking over the grandstands, the Adelaide Oval has a strangely English feel for an Australian cricket ground.

Recent upgrades to The Oval - including a large new grandstand which is part of a redevelopment plan that will boost capacity to 50,000 - have been carried out with due respect for the older stands and the famous scoreboard, and it remains one of cricket's most picturesque grounds.
