This is a list of cricket grounds in Scotland. Cricket reached Scotland in the 18th century, with the first recorded cricket match in Scotland taking place in Alloa in 1785.[1] It would be another 80 years however, before Scotland played their first full match, against Surrey in 1865, where they won by 172 runs.[2] Cricket continued to grow in Scotland, but never reached the participation and populairty levels that the game had in England. first-class matches and List A matches were played in Scotland during the 20th century, with Scotland being one of the host venues for the 1999 Cricket World Cup, One Day Internationals were played. With Scotland having One Day International status, this continues to this day.
