North West Cricket Stadium
MATCH PLAYED HERE
11-13 Dec v South Africa A
Although founded on the banks of the Mooi River in 1837, Potchefstroom is robbed of much of its charm by the highway that cuts straight through the middle of it.
With a population of just 25,000, there are a few leafy suburbs though and one avenue of oak trees, not surprisingly called Oak Avenue, claims to be the longest in the southern hemisphere at 6.84km in length.
If rain stops play at the North West Cricket Stadium, then the four museums in the town, as well as the Nederduitsch Hervormde Church and the City Hall, offer visitors a glimpse into Potchefstroom's history.
Just 30km from "Potch", as the locals call it, is the site of the world's largest and oldest ever recorded meteorite impact and it's well worth spending a day visiting the 90km wide and 2,000 million-year-old crater.
The North West Cricket Stadium, a former athletics venue, hosted its first international fixture as recently as October 2000, when South Africa hosted New Zealand in a rain-affected day-night encounter.
