Highest team total, most wickets and more key stats

The grand prairie Stadium is a cricket ground located in Grand Prairie, dallas, Texas.

Opened in May 2008, the Grand Prairie Stadium has a seating capacity of 15,000.

From 2008 to 2019, it was the home stadium of the Texas AirHogs of the American Association of Professional Baseball, and of the USL League Two soccer team Texas United from 2017 to 2019.

Later in November 2020, American Cricket Enterprises, the commercial partner of USA Cricket, signed a long-term lease for the stadium and planned to redevelop the ballpark as a cricket ground. 

The Grand Prairie Stadium became the home ground of the Major League Cricket (MLC) franchise Texas Super Kings in 2023. It also currently serves as a home and training facility for the United States cricket team.

It staged its first international cricket match, a T20 international played between co-hosts United States and Canada during a T20 World Cup 2024 group match. It is also slated to host three more matches during the marquee ICC tournament co-hosted by the United States and the West Indies.

With that being said, let’s have a closer look at the Grand Prairie Stadium T20 records and stats.
