The Darren Sammy Stadium has been hosting international matches since 2004 and was of the primary venues for the 2010 T20 World Cup including hosting both semi-finals. In recent years the stadium has not seen as much T20 international cricket but it will become a biosecure bubble for five iT20 matches in 2021 when the West Indies host Australia on Gros Islet.

Formerly known as the Beausejour Cricket Ground after the surrounding Beausejour hills , the venue was renamed in 2016 in honour of Saint Lucian hero Darren Sammy who captained the West Indies to 2 T20 World Cup titles during his time in charge. The Stadium has a capacity of 13,000.

The Darren Sammy Stadium is also the home venue for CPL side St Lucia Zouks although changes to the playing schedule as a result of Covid-19 mean that the stadium on Gros Islet was not used in either the 2020 or 2021 seasons for any of the Caribbean Premier League games.

Prior to the arrival of Australia for a five match T20 series here, the Darren Sammy Stadium or Beausejour Cricket Ground as it was formerly known has hosted 13 international matches, 10 of which occurred during the 2010 World Cup hosted in the Caribbean.

Highest score in a T20 match at The Darren Sammy Stadium

The highest score in a T20 match at the Darren Sammy Stadium is the 226 for 6 recorded by St Lucia Stars against Barbados Tridents during CPL 2018.

The Stars came into the match on the back of an incredible 14 match losing streak but ended that run with some spectacular batting provided by a couple of household names in the Caribbean. Things though didn’t start particularly well for St Lucia as they lost David Warner to the a second ball duck and while this innings represents the highest total at this venue, it also saw 3 batsmen score nought with 2 players out for golden ducks.

Not perturbed by the loss of the early wicket, the Stars sent in pinch hitter Rahkeem Cornwall to join Andre Fletcher who had already taken 20 runs the opening over. Cornwall’s bright and breezy 30 from 11 balls helped the St Lucia reach 67 at the end of the powerplay albeit for the loss of 3 wickets.

At the crease now though was Stars captain and T20 legend Kieron Pollard who went about destroying the Tridents bowling attack all of whom had international experience by hitting his maiden T20 century from just 53 balls while at the other end Andre Fletcher made 80 from 52 balls adding a partnership of 148 with Pollard in 79 deliveries.

The lowest score in a T20 match at the Darren Sammy Stadium is the 69 all out recorded by St Lucia Stars against St Kitts and Nevis Patriots during CPL 2018.

A mark of just how inconsistent the St Lucia based franchise have been over the CPL, this game occurred just 4 days after the Stars recorded the highest ever total at this venue! Obviously assuming that they’d just be able to blast their way to another huge total, the Stars came out swinging but lost regular wickets with only David Warner and Qais Ahmed making double figures.

The Patriots bowling attack all got in on the act but it was left-armer Sheldon Cottrell who stared with 3 for 14 as the Stars were bowled out in the 13th over!
