Liam Plunkett was one of the more experienced campaigners in the England squad when they hoisted the World Cup last summer.
The 35-year-old’s international career began in 2005 and has seen him represent the Three Lions more than 100 times in all formats – producing some memorable performances along the way.
Add to that his forays into franchise cricket and it’s clear that the England seamer has showcased his skills at some of the finest venues around the globe.
Plunkett has certainly made the most of one of the sport’s great strengths – the number of fantastic stadiums that cricket is played at around the world.
He’s not done yet but when we spoke to Plunkett in our ‘Barmy Army Meets’ Q&A a few weeks ago, we could resist asking him what his favourite grounds were…
“Lord’s is obviously a great place!”
The SCG, Sydney
“For me, it’s looking back on when I’ve done alright when I’ve had a good game.
“The SCG is one from when we won the series against Australia and New Zealand a while back.”
Newlands, Cape Town
The Oval, London
