An iconic sporting venue full of tradition, the Sydney Cricket Ground will host the two semi-finals of the Women’s T20 World Cup.
From Victor Trumper and Don Bradman to Greg Chappell, Dennis Lillee, Shane Warne and Glenn McGrath, the Sydney Cricket Ground has played host to some of the sport’s very greatest.
The ground has seen multiple sports pass through – it is currently the temporary home of the Sydney Roosters NRL club and Super Rugby’s New South Wales Waratahs.
Aussie rules team Sydney Swans also share the arena, which in 2014 hosted Major League Baseball teams Arizona Diamondbacks and Los Angeles Dodgers for two games on its turf.
In the first Test match ever played at the SCG, George ‘Joey’ Palmer took 11 wickets against England in a five-wicket Australia win.
This century alone, Shane Warne, Glenn McGrath, Justin Langer and Mike Hussey have all retired from Test cricket at the Sydney Cricket Ground. Steve Waugh scored his famous 29th Test century there against England.
Address: Driver Ave, Moore Park NSW 2021, Australia
