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.
