Picture of SuperSport Park, Centurion

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 grandstand 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 the great Shaun Pollock made his debut for South Africa against England. Supersport Park has always proved to be an excellent one-day cricket ground, with a wicket that is conducive to free scoring but usually has a little in it for bowlers of all kinds. In Tests the character is different, providing a fair contest between bat and ball. The ground hosted five World Cup matches in 2003, including two Super Six clashes. The SuperSport Park Centurion is a newer stadium that provides many facilities to the players and fans. It has a lush, green outfield. The ground has large patches of grass that are used as spectator stands and it just adds to the beauty of the ground while giving the spectators an opportunity to enjoy the cricket in a family picnic atmosphere.
