R. Premadasa Stadium

Known as the home of Sri Lankan cricket, the R. Premadasa International stadium in Colombo has hosted more than 100 one-day international matches since it inaugural contest between Sri Lanka and England in 1986. It is the largest stadium in Sri Lanka. It seats 35,000, easily beating Lord's 28,000, and was the brainchild of the late Sri Lankan president Ranasinghe Premadasa. Its claim to fame is a world record Test total: Sri Lanka’s 952 for six against India in 1997/1998, 340 of which were scored by former Sri Lankan captain Sanath Jayasuriya in a 576 partnership with Roshan Mahanama. Sixteen practice pitches, dormitories for the Sony Max Cricket Academy, which started in 2003, and training center have since been added.
