Built in 1970, the stadium was originally known as the De Beers Mine recreation club, but in 1997/1998 was renamed the De Beers Diamond Oval, home to the Griqua Diamonds.

The De Beers Diamond Oval hosted its first one-day international in April 1998 when Pakistan chased down a Sri Lankan total of 295 to record a four-wicket victory.

The ground has hosted six one-day internationals.

Most matches have produced free scoring, although England’s Mark Ealham excelled against Zimbabwe in January 2000 when he captured 5 for 15 off his 10 overs.

The side batting second has won on every occasion at the Kimberley ground.

The ground will play host to three pool matches: Pakistan against Namibia, New Zealand against Bangladesh, and the West Indies against Kenya.
