Founded on a swampy reserve for colonial soldiers to play sports in the mid-19th century, the Sydney Cricket Ground is the only one of Australia's major cricket grounds that regularly presents wickets offering decent turn for spinners.
The SCG was also the first venue to host a cricket match under flood lights when Australia played West Indies in 1978.
