The MCG in December 2006.

The Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) is an Australian sports stadium located in Melbourne. It was established in 1854 and has a capacity of approximately 100,000.[1] The MCG was the scene of the first ever Test match, which was played in 1877 between Australia and England.[2] The ground also hosted the first One Day International (ODI), which took place in 1971 between Australia and England.[3]

The Australian Charles Bannerman became the first Test centurion at the ground when he made 165 not out against England in 1877. Another Australian, Bob Cowper, holds the record for the highest individual Test innings at the ground, Cowper made 307 against England in 1966. The highest individual innings made by an overseas player is 208 which was scored by the West Indian Viv Richards in 1984. Donald Bradman has scored the most Test centuries at the ground with 9, the most by an overseas player is 5 which were scored by the Englishman Jack Hobbs.[4]

The first ODI century scored at the MCG was in 1979 by the Englishman David Gower. Gower's innings of 101 not out came from 100 balls. Mark Waugh holds the record for the highest innings at the ground with 173, which was made against the West Indies in 2001. The highest innings by an overseas player is 153 not out, which was made by Viv Richards. Ricky Ponting has scored the most ODI centuries at the ground with 7.[5]
