In all the last five ODIs at this venue, only the chasing teams managed to achieve victories (including one rain-curtailed chasing) while the first batting teams always failed to score at least 300 runs. This venue is famous for chasing the world-record ODI target of 435 runs by the hosts’ Proteas against Australia on 12th March 2006. But since then, there is only one more successful 300+ ODI chasing at this venue.

Apart from the batsmen, the pacers also enjoy this ODI venue.
