The Sedgars Park, formerly known as the North West Cricket Stadium is also named as the Senwes Park which is situated in Potchefstroom, South Africa. It is the home of the North West Dragons provincial team and is one of South Africa's newer international grounds. It was first used in October 2000 for a match between South Africa and New Zealand. Nicky Boje ensured the occasion would be remembered when he blasted an unbeaten 105 off only 93 deliveries, but the match was ultimately rained out. In October 2002, the venue became a Test ground when it hosted the second Test between South Africa and Bangladesh. Herschelle Gibbs, Gary Kirsten and Jacques Kallis all scored centuries, as the Proteas raced to an innings and 160 runs victory. During the 2003 World Cup, the North West Stadium hosted three contests, including the match between South Africa and Kenya during which Jonty Rhodes broke his hand, bringing an untimely end to his international career; he had planned to retire after the World Cup. On the days when international matches are not played (which is pretty often), the local club Harveld Lions is heard roaring in the cool shades of Sedgars Park. The stadium is well equipped with floodlights and has all the facilities but it's very rarely used for international games.
