Video story – The nostalgia of P Sara Oval
Bangladesh will play their one hundredth Test match at Paikiasothy Saravanamuttu Stadium (P Sara Ova) on March 15, 2017.P Sara Oval is the home ground of the Tamil Union Cricket and Athletic Club. The P Sara Oval hosts one Test match per year during Sri Lanka’s summer season, but lost out to Pallekele International Cricket Stadium in 2011 to host Sri Lanka v Australia Tests.
The P Sara Oval has a unique cricket culture. In 1948 Sir Don Bardman brought his all conquering Australian side to the ground en route to England. Sri Lanka played their first ever Test match on this ground in 1982 and also, they won their first ever Test at the same venue in 1985.
