Picture of R.Premadasa Stadium, Colombo

Named after former Sri Lankan President Ranasinghe Premadasa, the R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo was built on swamplands adjacent to the Khettarama Temple. The biggest cricket stadium in Sri Lanka till date, the ‘Khettarama Stadium’, as it was referred to previously, is only one of three Sri Lankan venues to have hosted World Cup matches. In the record books for Sri Lanka’s 952 for 6 against India in a Test match – the highest total in Test match history, the Premadasa Stadium has in the recent past not been hosting Test matches, but is still considered one of the best venues in Sri Lanka.
