We have just returned from a day out at the test match at PPC Newlands. Starting with the location. It is probably as picturesque and beautiful as any cricket ground in the world, with the back drop of table mountain it is superb, but regrettably...More

Lovely place to watch cricket--especially the opening match of the Mzansi T20 league. There's a fun crowd, and it's a good scene. There are decent food stalls, but too many hawkers in the aisles. The setting is beautiful, though, and I'd go back!

I went to watch the first day of the test vs Australia. I did not buy tickets in advance because I did my research and basically it was confirmed that unless England are playing there isn't a huge turnout. I lined up at the ticket...More

We attended the test match between South Africa and Australia. The location of the stadium is superb - it is easy to get to and pretty easy to find a parking place. Some of the views from within the ground are amazing - if you...More

It's not quite what you expect at a cricket game, but nevertheless fun to have an audience which gets actively engaged in the game. More like football than cricket, but it's a blast. Easy access by road or rail, plenty of exits to minimize crowding,...More
