GET TO KNOW THE RIVERSIDE DURHAM

England's most northerly ground, the home of Durham Cricket, will host three fixtures at the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2019.

First established in 1995, The Riverside Durham has previously hosted four ICC Cricket World Cup fixtures, all of which took place at the 1999 edition.

At the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, Durham will host three fixtures, including England v New Zealand and it will be the home for two Sri Lanka games.

The highest World Cup total at the home of Durham Cricket is 261/6, which was scored by Pakistan on their way to victory against Scotland in 1999. However, the stars of the show that day were the bowling attack of Wasim Akram, Shoaib Akhtar and Abdul Razzaq who took three wickets apiece.
