Emirates Old Trafford, Manchester

Old Trafford is another of England's traditional venues to undergo a dramatic facelift in recent times.

Established: 1857
Home team: Lancashire
Capacity: 26,000 (for internationals)
End names: Brian Statham End, Pavilion End

The site of the greatest bowling feat in Test history, when Jim Laker took 19-90 against the Australians in 1956, Old Trafford is one of England's traditional Test hosts but has seen its stock fall in recent years.

So much so that there was real danger of Lancashire moving from the old ground to a new site in Wigan.

However, a deal was finally struck in 2006 to remain in Manchester, and extensive redevelopment work has taken place at a ground that sorely needed it.

That work has seen dramatic changes, the biggest of which was the rotation of the square from its unusual east-west direction to the more usual north-south. This has seen the Stretford End replaced by the Pavilion End, while the Brian Statham End has moved with the pitch.

The final Test of the South Africa series takes place in Manchester this year, with West Indies visiting for an ODI in September.
