I must admit that upon entering the ground I was in awe of the stands (Kanhai, Lloyd Kallicharan, etc). It feels so close to the action (kinda like baseball). The same pitch where Windies played a test match in 1930, I played on it. A 14-year old me was giddy and starstruck.

The reason for a moat is simple. Our country is 6 feet below sea level.

The players' pavilion is something from Victorian Era:

Oh, that's awesome! I wanted to find pics of the moat outside the stadium. This is the only one I could find. Pretty neat system.
