KP rates Ahmedabad, Kanpur as worst grounds; Wankhede 4th best

June 05, 2016 21:10 IST

Lord's, the 'home of cricket' doesn't feature in KP's list of top 10 cricket grounds. 

Dashing England batsman Kevin Pietersen named Kanpur's Green Park and Ahmedabad's Motera among the 10 worst stadiums where he has played cricket in all these years.

Green Park and Motera does have company from other notable venues like Guyana and Manchester's Old Trafford to name a few. Pietersen also termed Gabba as the "11th worst ground" after being asked name 10 by his followers on Twitter.

The other grounds that did not find favour with Pietersen are Chelmsford, Colwyn Bay, Canberra, Multan, Leicester and St Kitts.

However he rated Mumbai's Wankhede Stadium as one of the 10 best venues that he has played cricket on.

It was at Wankhede in 2012, that Pietersen played a gem of an innings -- 186 on a turner that not only won England the Test but also changed the course of series. That century according to many is one of the finest by an overseas batsman on Indian soil.

The nine other venues which he liked playing are Adelaide, The Oval, Trinidad, MCG, Kingsmead, Headingley, Centurion, Wellington & Barbados.

However, Lord's, the 'home of cricket' doesn't feature in KP's list of top 10 cricket grounds. 

KP’s top 10 grounds: 

Adelaide Oval (Australia), The Oval (England), Queen's Park Oval (Trinidad), Wankhede Stadium (India), Melbourne Cricket Ground (Australia), Kingsmead (South Africa), Headingley (England), Centurion (South Africa), Wellington (New Zealand), Kensington Oval (Barbados)
