In 2016, Durham (officially Emirates Durham International Cricket Ground) is hosting the second Test between England and Sri Lanka from Friday May 27 to Tuesday May 31.
Emirates Durham International Cricket Ground, Chester-le-Street
There is a lot of confusion surrounding the name of this ground. Formerly known as the Riverside Ground, it is now offically named the Emirates Durham Internatoinal Cricket Ground or Emirates Durham ICG. To make matters worse, many people refer to it simply as ‘Chester-le-Street’ in a doomed bid for clarity. Whatever the name, there’s only one international cricket venue in the North-East, so you can’t go wrong.
The ground hosted international matches for the first time during the 1999 World Cup and then gained Test status in 2003. The first Test was between England and Zimbabwe and it has since played host to Bangladesh and the West Indies twice. The 2013 Ashes Test against Australia will be by far its biggest fixture.
