Kingsmead witnessed its first Test match in 1923 and first ODI in December 1992. Ten days long 'Timeless Test' between England and South Africa in 1939 that ended without a result, was also played on this ground.

Kingsmead is a 25,000-seated stadium located within walking distance of Durban’s famed Indian Ocean shoreline.

The ground was a semi-final venue during the 2003 Cricket World Cup. Interestingly, it is widely believed that the changing tides of the nearby ocean helps swing bowlers move the ball nicely through the air!
