The Wanderers is a cricket stadium located in Johannesburg, South Africa. It is one of the most famed cricket grounds in the world. The Wanderers was built in 1956 replacing the Old Wanderers stadium. Today this ground has a capacity of 34,000. Following South Africa’s readmission to world cricket in 1991, the Wanderers was completely overhauled. In 1996 new floodlights were added replacing the old ones. The ground is known as “Bullring” due to its design & intimidating appearance.

Wanderers is a regular venue for cricket in South Africa. The first test match on this ground was played in 1956 between South Africa & England. The first ODI on this ground was played in 1992 between South Africa & India. The ground had its first T20I in 2005 which was played between South Africa & New Zealand. The Wanderers is the home ground of the Highveld Lions.

It was also the ground where final of the 2003 Cricket World Cup was held. The pitch in Wanderers has a reputation of being a bouncy wicket & that is why, fast bowlers typically enjoy bowling on this pitch.
