The North West Stadium is very new to the world of international one-day cricket, having first been used in October 2000 for a match between South Africa and New Zealand which was rained out.

The North West Stadium has so far hosted only three one-dayers.

In 2002, Australia sneaked a tension-filled tie against South Africa at this venue, winning the match on 259 for 9 after being reduced to 223 for 9 in the forty-sixth over.

In the 2003 World Cup the ground, which has earned a good reputation for its limited-overs wickets, will host three matches.

Two games will include pre-tournament favourites Australia, who will call Potchefstroom their home base for the tournament.

South Africa will also be in action in Potchefstroom when they take on Kenya on February 12.
