Sahara Stadium Kingsmead


Since it first hosted a Test match in 1923, Kingsmead has become one of South Africa’s main cricket stadiums, and is home to the KwaZulu Natal provincial team, the Dolphins. Kingsmead is a short distance from the sea and the pitch actually sits below sea-level, which many believe offers changing conditions depending on the tide. The stadium has been redeveloped over the years to accommodate 25 000 people, while keeping the old main grandstand.

Kingsmead played host to a famous timeless Test match between England and South Africa in 1939 that lasted 10 days and ended as a draw when the English team had to catch their boat back to Britain.
