  • Bellerive Oval, also known by its sponsored name Blundstone Arena, is a cricket and Australian rules football ground located in Bellerive, City of Clarence, on the eastern shore of Hobart, Tasmania, Australia. It is the only venue in Tasmania which currently hosts international cricket matches, and has a capacity of approximately 16,000, although a record crowd of 16,719 watched Australia play England in 2003. Domestically, the Bellrive Oval is the home ground for the state cricket teams, the Tasmanian Tigers the Tasmanian Roar and the Hobart Hurricanes. It has been used as a venue for international cricket since 1988, when it hosted a One Day International (ODI) between New Zealand and Sri Lanka. The following year saw the first Test match to be held at the Bellerive, between Australia and Sri Lanka. The first Twenty20 International (T20I) hosted at the ground, between Australia and the West Indies took place in 2010. In total, as of December 2015 the ground has been the venue for 12 Test matches, 35 One Day International matches, and 2 T20I matches. In cricket, a five-wicket haul (also known as a "five-for" or "fifer") refers to a bowler taking five or more wickets in a single innings. This is regarded as a notable achievement. The first bowler to take a five-wicket haul in a Test match at Bellerive Oval was Rumesh Ratnayake, who took 6 wickets for 66 runs in 1989 for Sri Lanka against Australia in the first innings of the first Test played at the ground. The first Australian to take a five-wicket haul in a Test at Bellerive Oval was Merv Hughes, who took 5 wickets for 88 runs against Sri Lanka, in the second innings of the first Test at the ground. The best bowling figures to date were achieved by Shane Warne who took 6 wickets for 31 runs for Australia against New Zealand in 1993-94. There have been 16 five-wicket hauls taken in Test matches at Bellerive Oval, but no bowler has yet taken 10 wickets in a Test. The first ODI five-wicket haul was taken by Ottis Gibson who took 5 wickets for 42 runs for the West Indies against Sri Lanka in 1996. As of August 2015, no Australian bowler has taken a five-wicket haul at the ground and Gibson's figures remain the best ODI bowling figures for the venue. The first T20I was played at Bellerive Oval on 21 February 2010 and, as of August 2015, no bowler has taken a five-wicket haul at the ground in that format. The best bowling figures were achieved by Nathan Coulter-Nile who took 4 wickets for 31 runs for Australia against England on 29 January 2014. (en)
