Great job Arnab! Yeah, Worcester is beautiful isn't it? I have really fond memories of Northampton, as do all Bangladeshis who were there on May 31st 1999!

I had totally forgotten that the tree within the Canterbury boundary fell recently! Thats just weird not having that tree there anymore!

Very nice work. Seems like they finally decided to get rid of the big tree from the St Lawrence Ground, Canterbury, Kent. I firs saw this ground in action during the '99 WC. Is it a six if the ball hits the tree?

No, its used to a 4 if you hit the tree, no matter how high or low!

Arnab, you might want to split up the pages. The java panaroma applets suck up a lot of memory. Ppl with average amounts of RAM will probably have their browswers hanging.

I hear they are gonna plant another one there. Talk about history.....

Yeah I heard that as well! I think they were debating about it when the last one fell. I think thats stupid. It was there fore two hundred years, it fell, move on!

yes but maybe they're looking at it like replacing McInnes with another Aussie :)

Nice work, arnab. Seems too much to load for even cable - perhaps another page for the panoramas only?

What's up with these odd shaped grounds?

I believe the lime tree at Canterbury has been replanted with another one.

Lords doesn't look as awe-inspiring as it's historical heritage suggests it should look. That weird alien-head looking pavilion is just wrong! They should have kept it a traditional style...

That Riverside ground seems very nice, especially with that formidable castle-like building and forest in the background. What a wonderful place to watch/play a cricket match.

That weird looking structure is not the pavilion. It is the media centre at the nursery end of the ground, opposite the pavilion. The pavilion is still the same as it has always been. Maybe Arnab will stick in a picture of the Lord's pavilion at some point.

Added pictures of the Old Trafford ground at Manchester.

Includes two 360 panoramic views. One from the center of the pitch, another from the pavillion.
