Sri Lankan Cricket

Cricket formulates an integral part of Sri Lankan culture and is deeply embedded into every corner of the island, especially after the national team went on to become world champions at the 1996 Cricket World and since then has been a major force in international cricket.

Easily the most popular sport in the country and one that has garnered Sri Lanka the most international recognition, Sri Lanka Cricket has now created itself into a brand known globally.
A Colonial import that was brought into the country when it was colonised by the British, it is one that has been fully embraced by Sri Lankans. The first recorded cricket match was said to have been played in 1892, with the country commencing first class cricket in 1905, making its international debut in the 1975 world cup.

Having produced many top-class cricketers over the last couple of years, the Sri Lankan cricket team currently holds several world records, including world records for highest team totals in all three forms of the game, Test, ODI and Twenty20.

Understandably, Sri Lanka’s domestic cricketing system is one of the finest in Asia and starting from a very young age, children vie for a place on the cricket teams of their respective schools. Furthermore, one has the chance to play and watch cricket at a number of historic Test venues as well as at the newer top-class venues which include the Galle International Stadium, the SCC Colombo and the Rangiri Dambulla and also the recently established venues at Pallekele and Hambantota.
