Hi Bernard, This is a Cricket Ground in England.It is a very difficult bat and ball game and an International Match can last for 5 days, I am sorry to say that no European Country are skilled enough to Play. in the Cricket world Cup the Teams are England, Scotland, South Africa, India, Australia and West Indies, I would explain more but the rules are too complicated to reveal on Panoramio, But they throw a solid Ball at a speed of over 120 kilo. per mile at a man with a bat who only wears leg pads and gloves.Scotland is probably the best team in the World, but it lets the other Countries win sometimes to stop them getting disheartened cheers scally,
