GET TO KNOW THE HAMPSHIRE BOWL
The Hampshire Bowl will host ICC Cricket World Cup fixtures for the first time in 2019, with five matches taking place at the venue.
It won’t be the first time that Hampshire has hosted World Cup cricket though, as fixtures in the 1983 and 1999 editions were played at the old Northlands Road Ground in Southampton.
The Hampshire Bowl, home of Hampshire County Cricket Club, was opened in 2001 and sits on the outskirts of Southampton on the south coast of England.
It has hosted international fixtures in all three formats and was also home to five fixtures in the 2004 edition of the ICC Champions Trophy.
