The Brit Oval, still commonly referred to by its original name of The Oval, is an international cricket ground in Kennington, in the London Borough of Lambeth. In the past it was also sometimes called the Kennington Oval. In past years it was officially named as the 'Fosters Oval', 'AMP Oval', and, presently, as the 'Brit Insurance Oval' (or 'Brit Oval') due to commercial sponsorship deals.
