This is one of the best cricket stadiums in the country. Also R. Premadasa ground also known as Qeththarama ground is the most sought after venue for day and night cricket matches.

it is very difficult to get to the stadium on time, thru traffic & condition of the road. anyway, we in sri lanka feel that ROAD DEVELOPMENT & TRANSPORT are 2 very sore points that prompt some youngsters who cannot see a career in cricket, leave our island to greener pastures across the seas.

Well if you are a cricket fan it makes sense to visit this. Unless there is a match there is no point visiting the place. I wish there were more & better toilets as well as less police presence during matches.

The Stadium is situated in the busy city of Colombo. Cricket fans around Srilanka could easily reach the stadium by public transport services. Shanty houses can be seen in the surrounding, therefore safe vehicle parking is major issue for spectators. I suggest the spectators to use public transport services or taxis.

one of the biggest cricket venues in Sri Lanka. This includes a grandstand if you can buy tickets in time. It is a shrine for cricket loving Sri Lankans. It is in Colombo. You can reach to the grounds in few minutes from many of the famous hotels in Colombo. When the lights are switched on in day / night... More

When there is no match you can only see it from outside. This is considered cricketer's paradise in Lanka. Every budding cricketer dreams of playing on this ground!
