This peer review discussion has been closed.
I've listed this article for peer review because, as one of the most prominent Test cricket grounds in the West Indies, I feel it should be higher than a Stub class. The article is Top importance to both the Cricket and T&T Wikiprojects, and I hope to get it to GA class.

Thanks, S.G.(GH) ping! 14:21, 26 December 2013 (UTC)

Initial thoughts are it looks good for GA status, however I do suggest there could be some work done to improve it.

  • "Considered one of the most picturesque West Indian cricket venues" Considered by whom?
  • Lord Hawke is a redirect
  • Can we get a link to the earthquake becuse it is not clear in the article which earthquake it is referring to.
  • Queens Park Savanah doesn't need to be linked after the initial linked mention. Same with every other link.
  • Same as above with Lord Hawke
  • When you mention Marylebone Cricket Club, it is a good idea to have (MCC) next to it so others understand what you mean when you use the abbreviation.
  • "The Second Test of the MCC 1929-30 tour", grammar and capitalisation needs checking
  • India cricket team is a redirect. Check the other national teams too because they have the same redirect
  • Spacing needed after source 16
  • Source for Pakistan becoming a major force in cricket at the time?
  • "The First Test of the series saw Australia routed for 90in their first innings" Spacing and capitalisation need checking
  • "Australian WSC team" Needs either clarification or WSC in brackets after mention of World Series Cricket
  • "In 1981 the Queen's Park Oval hosted England and saw a commanding West Indian innings victory," WP:PEA
  • "Third Test" capitalisation.
  • Source 10, publisher?

These are issues I can see that will be picked up if you tke it to GA, but once you sort those, you should be able to be successful in your nomination. The C of E God Save the Queen! (talk) 11:09, 15 January 2014 (UTC)

Thanks very much for that, CoE. I've made the amendments you suggest. With regards to a cite for "force in world cricket" the sentence actually referred to the West Indies, not Pakistan, so I've reworded the line to make it more clear and found a citation. As for capitalisation with First Test, Third Test etc. I believe there is an MoS entry at WP:CRIC which stipulates that this is how they should be capitalised, but I shall check and make sure the article is consistent. I'll check for over-links, and find a cite for the picturesque nature of the ground. Lastly, there does not seem to be an article for the quake that is mentioned in the article. It was only 5.1 or so, so it seems not to be included in the list of 2007 earthquakes. S.G.(GH) ping! 14:29, 15 January 2014 (UTC)
