Kinrara Academy Oval is a cricket stadium located at Bandar Kinrara, Puchong, Selangor, near Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.[2] Constructed in 2003, it hosted its first recorded match in 2005 when Bhutan Under-17s played Kuwait Under-17s in the Asian Cricket Council Under-17 Cup.[3]

The ground also hosted all seven matches in the 2006-07 DLF Cup played between Australia, India and the West Indies. All of the matches played had One Day International status. Despite having a capacity of 4,000 during these matches, only a few hundred spectators turned up to watch. Major international cricket hasn't returned since.[4] In 2007, the ground hosted a Youth One Day International series between England Under-19s and Sri Lanka Under-19s, immediately following this series Sri Lanka Under-19s played India Under-19s there. The following year, Malaysia hosted the 2008 Under-19 World Cup and the Kinrara Oval hosted ten Youth One Day International matches during it,[5] including the final between India and South Africa Under-19s,[6] which India won.[7]

In September 2011, the ground held seven matches in the World Cricket League Division Seven.[3] In October 2014, the ground hosted seven matches in the World Cricket League Division Three.

In August 2017, it hosted matches for the 2017 Southeast Asian Games hosted by Malaysia.

In June 2019, it hosted 2019 Malaysia Tri-Nation Series.[8] Malaysia and Thailand both played their first matches with T20I status during this tournament, following the decision of the ICC to grant full Twenty20 International status to all its members from 1 January 2019.[9]
