The Queen’s Sports Club Ground was first used for a one-day international in December 1996 when Zimbabwe inflicted a two-wicket defeat on England for their third win against the English in four matches.

It became a Test ground some time before that, hosting Sri Lanka against Zimbabwe in October 1994, a match in which Dave Houghton scored a mammoth 266.

Twenty-two one-day internationals have been played at the Queen’s Sports Club, including one on October 1, 1997 that ended in a tie between Zimbabwe and New Zealand.

Zimbabwe plays Australia, the Netherlands and Pakistan in Bulawayo during the 2003 World Cup, and they’ll be hoping for better results at the ground than they've had in recent times.

South Africa achieved its highest total in one-day internationals at the ground when they tallied 363 for 3 in September 2001 and went on to a 153-run win over Zimbabwe.
