Capacity isn't that high though. I know they don't fill as many spectators as venues in the sub-continent, but do they have enough seats to accommodate people visiting for the WC?

I don't think any of them are real pictures. They are all simulations of what they expect it to look like. I saw these on ICC website a few days ago, but thought they're not worth showing yet. Some of them also have temporary seating arrangement, meaning that the total seating capacity isn't really what they have at any time of the year.

Anyway, all I care about is watching it on TV, and making sure that our BC boys are happy there.

Don't know about other stadiums, but the one in Trinidad (the venue for our WC matches) is far from being ready at this point.

I've seen Queens Park Oval. It looked very shabby, not at all like the picture here. But that was almost 15 years ago, I'm sure they've made improvements. Also, even then the ground itself was fantastic.
