Rated one of the 10 best grounds in the world by Indian legend Kapil Dev, Supersport Park is a 20,000-seater that boasts a wonderful grand stand and superb open grassed embankments.

It hosted its first one-day international in December 1992 and its first Test in November 1995, a match in which Shaun Pollock made his debut for South Africa against England.

Supersport Park has proved an excellent one-day ground, with a wicket that is conducive to free scoring but usually has a little in it for bowlers of all kinds.

Supersport Park has so far been witness to 15 limited-overs internationals.

Five World Cup matches will be played at Supersport Park, including two pool matches and two Super Six showdowns.
