We crunch the numbers ahead of the fourth ODI between the Proteas and Sri Lanka in Cape Town.
The Proteas have played 32 ODIs at Newlands since 1992, winning a massive 27 and losing just five, giving them a win percentage of 84.37.
The team batting first went on to win 23 times and the team batting second went on to win only nine times. Those stats suggest that chasing is very difficult at Newlands. In the last five ODIs, the team who batted first won three times.
The highest total for a team batting first at Newlands is 354. That total was reached twice by the Proteas. In 2001 against Kenya, and in 2009 against England.
The highest total for a team batting second at Newlands was scored by Australia, 296 in a 31-run loss to the Proteas last year.
The lowest total for a team batting first is ranked in the top five for lowest-ever ODI scores, when Pakistan were bowled out for a mere 43 runs by West Indies back in 1993.
The lowest total for a team batting second was when the Proteas bowled out West Indies for only 54 in 2004.
The highest individual score by a batsman at Newlands was by David Warner, who scored 173 runs against the Proteas in a losing cause last year.
Herschelle Gibbs and AB de Villiers are the only players to have scored two centuries at the ground.
Jacques Kallis has scored the most runs at the ground, 662 in 16 innings, at an average of 38.94.
Gary Kirsten and Neil Mckenzie share the highest partnership, they scored 209 runs against the Kenya in 2001.
The best bowling figures at the ground was achieved by Henry Olonga, who took 6-19 in his 8.3 overs against England in 2000.
Shaun Pollock is the leading wicket-taker at the ground, as he took 30 wickets in the 21 innings that he bowled there.
Seven bowlers have taken five or more wickets in an ODI innings at Newlands. Makhaya Ntini did it twice, including taking 6-22 against Australia in 2006.
The Proteas have won three of the last five ODIs they have played at the ground and if they win on Tuesday, it will be three in a row.
If the Proteas win on Tuesday, it will be their 10th ODI victory in a row.
