JOHANNESBURG, March 28 (Reuters) - Following is a factbox on the fourth test match between South Africa and Australia, which starts on Friday:
Wanderers, Johannesburg - Capacity: 27,000
At an altitude of some 1800m above sea level, the thin air has always ensured lively cricket and the intimidating atmosphere has given the venue the nickname ‘The Bullring’.
The stadium hosted the final of the 2003 Cricket World Cup and has also been used for rugby internationals and even a World Cup warm-up featuring Cristiano Ronaldo abd Portugal in 2010.
Australia have won all of their last five tests at the Wanderers, stretching back over two decades.
South Africa have hosted 38 tests at the ground since the first in 1956, winning 15, losing 12 and drawing 11.
March 30-April 3. Play starts at 1000 local time (0800 GMT)
