County Ground, in the Abington district of Northampton, England, is a cricket ground. It is the home of Northamptonshire County Cricket Club and was used by Northampton Town F.C. from 1897 to 1994. From 1886 until 1895, Northamptonshire played their first match at the ground before entering the Minor Counties Championship and winning three titles between 1895 and 1904. They were accepted into the County Championship competition in 1905, and on 5 June they played their inaugural first-class fixture there against Worcestershire. In a rain-marred game that only allowed 75 overs of play, Northamptonshire lost to Leicestershire by six wickets.

The County Cricket Ground is recognized as a location that works well for spin bowlers, and in Northamptonshire’s two spinners Jason Brown and Monty Panesar took all 20 wickets in the county championship finale of 2005.

Is County Ground Northampton Batting Or Bowling Pitch?

The County Ground, Northampton will host the first game of the English T20 Blast 2021. It has been a batting beauty for many years and teams frequently scored more than 170 runs in most matches. The trend may be anticipated to continue this season as well. With the new ball, pacer s can have their say, and middle spinners can do something as well. Bowlers will need to perform exceptionally well on this batting friendly surface.

Northampton shire bought a ploughed field in 1885 for £2000 on which they built a sports ground – apart from cricket, there was a cycle track 650 yards long, and facilities for lawn tennis, athletics, and bowls. Football was also played since 1897. The county voted against allowing women to use the cricket pitch in 1891; 40 years later, it hosted the first Women’s Test between England and Australia.

This is a ground with character rather than beauty, nestled among red-brick terraced homes. The north end is known as the Football Ground end because it borders Northampton Town Football Club’s playing field. A new pavilion was built in 1979 and adjoins its predecessor, while a stand for an indoor school was added to the wicket traditionnally favours bowlers, especially when Percy Fender scored a century in 35 minutes here in 1920. In 1907, one of the greatest wet wicket bowlers, Colin Blythe, took all 10 Northants wickets in an innings on his way to 17 for 48 in a single day’s play.
