List of international cricket centuries at the Antigua Recreation Ground
The Antigua Recreation Ground is a cricket ground in St John's, Antigua and Barbuda. International cricket has been played at the ground since 1978 when a One Day International (ODI) was played between the West Indies and Australia. The ground has also hosted 22 Test Matches, the first was played in 1981 between the West Indies and England. The ground was also used to stage a World Series Cricket Supertest between the WSC Australian and WSC West Indian teams in 1979.
The Englishman Peter Willey scored the first of 57 Test centuries at the ground when he made 102 not out against the West Indies in 1981. The Antigua Recreation Ground has been the scene of 2 world record individual scores, both by Brian Lara and both against England. In 1994 Lara, with an innings of 375 from 538 balls, surpassed fellow West Indian Garry Sobers's record of 365 not out, which had stood since 1958. Lara's record stood until 2003, when it was broken by the Australian Matthew Hayden. It was less than a year later that Lara again broke the record with 400 not out from 582 balls, this remains the highest individual Test innings. The only other player to have scored a triple century at the ground is Chris Gayle who made 317 against South Africa in 2005.
Just 5 ODI centuries have been scored at the ground, the first of these, and highest, was scored by Desmond Haynes in 1978. Haynes's innings of 148, from 136 balls, was scored against Australia in 1978.
