List of international cricket five-wicket hauls at Lancaster Park
The Lancaster Park, also known as AMI Stadium, is a 13,000 capacity cricket stadium situated in a suburb of Christchurch in New Zealand. The stadium is currently closed due to damage sustained in the February 2011 Christchurch earthquake. The Hadlee Stand has been demolished and the fate of the rest of the stadium is unresolved. It was the oldest test venue before it was demolished, and was taken over by Basin Reserve.
