The SCG was established on the former 1852 Garrison Ground behind Victoria Barracks, Paddington, by the NSW Cricket Association. Today, the SCG is highly revered as one of the premier cricket venues in the world, hosting the annual New Year Test, One-Day Internationals and is the home ground of the NSW Blues and the Sydney Sixers.
