First class cricket has not been played since 2001 due to the construction of Beausejour Stadium. The ground hosted two One Day Internationals, in 1978 and 1984. Both matches involved West Indies and Australia. On 12 April 1978, Australia beat West Indies by 2 wickets. On 19 April 1984, West Indies returned the favour, winning by 7 wickets.
The venue had previously been known as Victoria Park, but in 1979 it was renamed after Francis "Mindoo" Phillip, widely acclaimed as the island's greatest cricketer.
