The most stunning settings of cricket grounds that I have seen around the world:

After seeing a photo of this ground (pictured) I decided to head to Dharamsala for the 4th (& subsequently deciding) test of Australia's 2017 tour to India. It proved to be a great decision with the series locked at 1-1 after Australia won the first test (Steve O'Keefe match figures of 12-70) & India the second (despite Nathan Lyon's 8-50) providing a chance to witness a rare series victory in India and attend the inaugural test at one of the World's most stunning cricket grounds. I convinced my mate Knucklehead to join me and it would be fair to say that he and I had a more enjoyable time than the Australian team (if that isn't the case it may help explain why India won.) Australia was unable to fully capitalise on a Steve Smith hundred (his 3rd of the series) being dismissed for 300 before conceding a lead of 32 on the first innings only after an aggressive 63 from Jadeja batting at 8. The Australian pace attack was steady but not particularly threatening so it was a surprise that the Indian quicks Kumar & Yadav had the Australian top 3 back in the splendid pavilion within 10 overs after a fine display of hostile, accurate fast bowling. The match was as good as over as Jadeja & Ashwin suffocated the remaining batsmen with 3 wickets apiece & the Indians knocked off the runs early on day 4 with 8 wickets in hand.
