Having already hosted several one-day internationals featuring the likes of Australia and Pakistan—as well as limited-over Wales-England games—Glamorgan CCC are ready to take the next step. Sophia Gardens has undergone major redevelopment to become an ECB-rated A category ground and 2009 will see a much-coveted Ashes Test match played in the Welsh capital. This book includes chapters on the very early history of the ground from 1858 right through to the 2007 ODI between England and India, as well as reports and scorecards, playing records, statistics, and interviews with players past and present.
