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] But it was another 80 years before Scotland played their first full match, against Surrey in 1865, which they won by 172 runs.[2] Cricket continued to grow in Scotland, but never reached the participation and popularity levels that the game had in England. first-class matches and List A matches were played in Scotland during the 20th century; Scotland was a host venue for the 1999 Cricket World Cup, and One Day Internationals were played. Today Scotland hstill has One Day International status.
