Chester-le-Street is not a city. May be true of a few others.

By "city" here, we mean a location, with lots of people living in it, with a cricket ground in it, where Test matches have been played.

Great idea for a quiz. I might be tempted to split them by test playing nation, but not name the nation, so a colum or the like for each. Given there are nearly a hundred answers a little help/guidance is no bad thing.

Nice idea - here it is, although we've gone the whole enchilada and offer country hints as well.

Typing in Antigua brings up St. Johns, and a number of other Caribbean island names bring up their cricket cities, but Barbados doesn't bring up Bridgetown.

Why is Hyderabad in there twice?

Because there are two cities with that name that have hosted Test matches. One in India, the other in Pakistan.

Reading some of the above comments, I'm a bit annoyed because I couldn't think of any towns or cities in countries which I knew had hosted test matches, but which would apparently have appeared had I just entered the countries themselves. Could you please amend the instructions accordingly?

Is there a reason for allowing the country type-ins @Jerry928?

Once upon a time it seemed like a good idea - some West Indies ground locations were a bit obscure! But it does make it inconsistent across the quiz, so the country names have just been removed as type-ins.

Should accept Durham for Chester-le-Street, really.

Why ? They are two different places, though Chester-le-Street is in COUNTY Durham

Chester-le-Street is a smallish (25,000) town at the centre of a triangle bounded by Newcastle, Sunderland and the City of Durham, and is about 10 km from each of them. It lies within the Metropolitan Area of Newcastle (called Tyneside-Wearside to be exact, pop 1.6 million). All the cricket stats name the Riverside Ground to be in Chester-le-Street. The odd name comes from a chester, a fortified camp from Roman times, and a street was indeed a Roman "street", or the main road, that ran through town.

Maybe at least accept Newcastle, then?

A bit of a stretch, but OK. Chester-le-Street is in County Durham, and Newcastle is in the adjacent country of Tyne and Wear, but the drive between the two is close to continuously urban.

Well done, very funny. Beyond India, it gets such random.

Not really. Name every big city in India, the UK, Ireland, South Africa and other nearby countries also colonized by the British, the Caribbean, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Australia, New Zealand, and a few cities in the UAE that are overwhelmingly Indian and I think you get more or less all of them. Pretty sure all of these places were at one point part of the British Empire. The game was invented in England and then exported to the rest of the empire.

I had no idea where "Chester-le-Street" was... but looked it up and apparently it's in England.

It would be interesting if the answer also showed how many tests each city had hosted (from an educational viewpoint). May not be particularly practical though.
