The Lord's No. 1 Ground Durban is one of the oldest cricket grounds in South Africa and though it no longer a stadium, it is associated with the county's cricketing history. The Lord's No. 1 Ground at Durban hosted four Tests and 22 first class matches between 1910 and 1921. The ground did not prove to be too lucky for the South Africans and they could win only one of the four Tests that they played here. They lost one and drew the other two. The stadium was destroyed in 1922 and ever since cricket in Durban has been played at the other stadiums like the Sahara Stadium, Kingsmead. It is known as the Lord's, leading to potential confusion with Lord's Cricket Ground in London.
