Willowmoore Park

Willowmoore Park is one of South Africa's newer international grounds. This is a smaller-sized venue and home of the Easterns provincial team.

Indian team marked the victory against Zimbabwe team in the inaugural ODI match on this ground in February 1997. Master blaster Sachin Tendulkar had smashed a century in that match as India defeated Zimbabwe by six wickets.

Willowmoore Park remains a one-day international venue; it has not yet hosted a Test. However, it has become a more and more popular choice as an ODI ground. During the Cricket World Cup in 2003 it hosted two matches.
