Providence, the Amazon Warriors sacred home territory

The Providence Stadium or Guyana National Stadium was built specifically to host Super Eight matches in the 2007 Cricket World Cup when six matches were played between March 28, 2007 and April 9, 2007. The most notably, was the match between Sri Lanka and South Africa in which Sri Lankan fast bowler Lasith Malinga became the first bowler in international cricket history to take four wickets in four consecutive balls.

To date, Providence has hosted two test matches against Sri Lanka and Pakistan in 2008 and 2011 respectively, nineteen (19) ODIs with the most recent being against Pakistan in April, 2017 and six (6) Twenty20 Internationals all in the 2010 T20 World Cup.

Providence Stadium is located on the east bank of the Demerara River a few kilometres south of the Guyanese capital, Georgetown. Located along the East Bank Highway the stadium is a ten-minute drive from Georgetown’s city centre and a 30-minute drive from Cheddi Jagan International Airport.
