Profile

The P.Saravanamuttu Stadium - home to the Tamil Union Cricket and Athletic Club - hosted Sri Lanka's first Test, against England in 1982. In 1985, it was the venue for Sri Lanka's first-ever Test win, over India. It is a relatively small ground, half surrounded by lower-level stands and half by grass banks. The most famous feature is the ivy-covered scoreboard and in 1948 Don Bradman brought his Australian side to the ground en route to England.

The ground regularly hosted international matches till 1994, but that was followed by a eight-year lull. In 2002, Australia and Pakistan played a Test there, with the series being played on neutral soil.
