GET TO KNOW COUNTY GROUND TAUNTON

Three ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 fixtures will be held at the County Ground Taunton, home of Somerset County Cricket Club.

Overlooked by the towers of three churches, the County Ground Taunton is one renowned for its character and history.

It has been in use since 1882, and staged one game in the 1983 World Cup and two in 1999, including India’s clash with Sri Lanka, where they racked up a huge 373/6.

In 2017, the County Ground Taunton was host to the ICC Women’s World Cup, with seven fixtures taking place at the ground.
