SA20 2023: Kingsmead Durban Capacity, Records, Weather Conditions, Pitch Report, Boundary Length, T20 Record, Location, Capacity Stadium

Kingsmead Stadium, located less than two kilometres from the Indian Ocean on South Africa’s warm east coast, is one of the country’s oldest venues. In fact, the venue will mark its centennial nearly exactly 100 years to the day that it staged its first test – 18 January 1923 – when the Durban SG bowls the first SA20 ball against the Joburg Super Kings on 11 January 2023.

Legends such as Neil Adcock, Peter and Shaun Pollock, Mike Procter, Malcolm Marshall, and Trevor Goddard all had a lot of success at Kingsmead, but the delight of the ball fizzing about off a green pitch has now transferred to spinners who love to play in Durban.

Weather report

In Durban, the temperature will range between 29 and 21 degrees Celsius during the day in January. This temperature range will be suitable for the game. Rainfall, on the other hand, may be a problem. According to the forecast, at least 10 days of rain are expected during the next month. Fans will be hoping that this does not disrupt the game.
