Jeevan Kumaranatunge, Sri Lanka's Miniser of Sports and Youth Affairs, laid the foundation stone for the Welagedara Cricket Stadium in Kurunegala.

The stadium will be equipped with a modern scoreboard, a grand stand, two pavilions, a sprinkler system, sight screens, enclosed terraces, a boardroom and complete media facilities. There is also a plan to install flood lights in the next two years.

Salinda Dissanayake, the president of the Kurunegala District Cricket Association, hoped that after completion, the stadium would qualify as an international stadium and be able to host a four-day match against Pakistan in March 2006.
