South Africa vs Australia at Kingsmead, 2009

Kingsmead is a cricket ground in Durban, South Africa. It has a capacity of 25,000 and at present operates under the sponsor name of "Sahara Stadium Kingsmead".[1] Kingsmead has hosted 40 Test matches, the first was in 1923 when South Africa played the touring England team.[2] The ground has also hosted 39 One Day Internationals (ODIs), the first was in 1992 when South Africa played India.[3]

The Englishman Phil Mead became the first Test century scorer at the ground when he made 181 against South Africa in 1923. Of the 72 Test centuries made at the ground the highest is Gary Kirsten's innings of 275 made against England in 1999. The highest score by an overseas player is 243 which was achieved by the Englishman Eddie Paynter. The only other players to have scored a double century at Kingsmead are Graeme Pollock and Bill Edrich. Three players have scored a century in both innings of a match at the ground. The Englishman Jack Russell became the first player to do it in 1912 followed by the Australian's Ricky Ponting and Phillip Hughes in 2006 and 2009 respectively. Jacques Kallis holds the record for the most Test centuries at the ground with five.[4]

In 1993, against Pakistan, the West Indian Brian Lara scored the first of fifteen ODI centuries at the ground. Lara's innings of 128 from 125 deliveries remains the highest ODI score seen at Kingsmead. Jacques Kallis is the only player to have scored two ODI centuries at the ground, with scores of 109 not out against Pakistan in 1998 and 119 not out against India in 2006.[5]
