Sedgars Park has played host to six One-Day Internationals since 2000, the first being a game between South Africa and New Zealand, in which Nicky Boje cracked an unbeaten century before the game was rained off. It staged three games during the 2003 World Cup, including that between Australia and Namibia, and has also been the venue for some of South Africa A's games in recent years.

It was the setting for a thrilling tie between Australia and South Africa in 2002, when Australia found themselves 223-9 chasing 259 with four overs to go, only for the unlikely pair of Jimmy Maher and Nathan Hauritz rescuing the game - Hauritz was only able to manage a single off the final ball from Jacques Kallis with two needed. It was at Sedgars Park that Jonty Rhodes' international career ended, with the hand injury that cut short his 2003 World Cup.
