Trying to rank the world's Top 25 cricket grounds was a very difficult task; one man's heaven can be another man's hell.

There is a huge degree of subjectivity involved. For example, most grounds have a good atmosphere when a Test match or derby clash is taking place.

To comprise this list, each venue was allocated points out of 10 over three categories (see below) before adding up the totals and listing them in order of low to high.

 

Categories

Atmosphere: Is it at a cacophony of sound? Does it make opposing players tremble in their spikes? Is the gentle ripple before play begins one of life's great pleasures?

History: How long has the ground been in use for? What famous cricketing incidents occurred there? Have a plethora of records been set on that piece of hallowed turf?

Aesthetics: How nice is the ground to look at? How nice is its location? What is the surrounding area like?

Read on to find out the results.

 

*Please note, only grounds that have hosted international cricket were considered.
