Home to the Cape Cobras cricket team, the Newlands Cricket Ground is considered one of the most beautiful cricket grounds in the world. It’s watched over by the iconic peak of Table Mountain and has a rich history dating back to 1888, when the land was first rented by the Western Province Cricket Club.
