Instagram piles on the FOMO with gorgeous Newlands cricket snaps

Whether you like cricket or love it, few can deny that Cape Town’s Newlands cricket stadium is pretty unique. Guarded by Table Mountain and lashed by the wind, the stadium is a visual feast for tourists and cricket connoisseurs a like.

That is, even if South Africa does lose.

Last night, our national team took to the field against Sri Lanka in a T20 international match. While the visitors won the match and took series honours, there’s no denying that the real winners were the folks who were out snapping and supporting.

And with that said, we take a look at what Instagram caught on camera at last night’s Newlands clash. Warning: prepare for FOMO.

People were obviously living their best lives.
