De Beers Diamond Oval, Kimberley
End Names: North End, South End
Formerly known as De Beers Country Club, the De Beers Diamond Oval is one of South Africa’s smaller international venues with an 11,000 capacity.
Hosted its first one day international in 1998 and was used as a venue for three matches during the 2003 ICC Cricket World Cup.
England’s Mark Ealham took 5-15 on this ground in a one-dayer against Zimbabwe in 2000 – the then record best figures for an England bowler in ODIs.
Did not stage a full international match on England’s last tour in 2004-05, but was the venue for England’s win by six wickets in a 50-over warm up match against South Africa ‘A’.
