Here are some figures of the largest crowd attendance for a cricket match in each test playing country.
If possible, and if you think any of the things mentioned below are incorrect, you can please help me out. I am quite curious and want to be avouched about the exact figures.
(Read as host country; year and event; stadium; attendance; match)

Aus; 1960-61test series; MCG; 92000+; Aus v WI test
Eng; 1999 WCfinal; Lords; 30000+; Aus v Pak ODI
SA; 2003 WCfinal; Wanderers; 33000+; Aus v Ind ODI
WI; ??? ; Queen's Park Oval; 25000+; WI v ???? (help needed here):-/

Zim; ??? ; Harare Sports Club; 26000+; Zim v ??? (help needed here):-/

Zimbabwe's highest attendance was, I believe, in the 1950's, when they were Rhodesia. The game was a Rhodesia XI vs MCC, and I think it was at Salisbury Sports Club (now known as Harare Sports Club).

Not sure of the actual number, maybe Andy-Flower knows?

even though BNS has an official capacity of around 38000, but on any good day, our stadium holds upto 65000 spectators. but considering the enthusiasm and the passion for the game, i bet if the stadium had a capacity of 100,000+, it would be filled to the brim on a good cricketing day.
