This venue hasn’t hosted a men’s T20 match for more than a decade. In the early T20 cricket era, this venue didn’t produce many big scores. Even 165+ totals were much defendable at that time, but there were also a few successful chasing of 165+ targets. Spinners have better records at this T20 venue, while there are also some good records of big T20 scores, including John Eugene’s only T20 century.
