WWT20Q, venue profile

The ground in Amstelveen has a history that goes back to 1939.

The VRA Cricket Ground in Amstelveen is one of two venues of the ICC Women’s World T20 2018 Qualifier

The ground is one of the older ones in the country, with a history that goes back to 1939. It was the second ground in the Netherlands to have a grass wicket. 

Having played host to several games involving Dutch teams, it had its moment of glory during the ICC Cricket World Cup 1999, when it hosted a one-day international between Kenya and South Africa on 26 May.
