Rangiri Dambulla International Stadium in August 2014

The Rangiri Dambulla International Stadium is a 16,800[1] seat cricket stadium in Sri Lanka. The stadium was established on 2000 specially for Limited Overs Cricket.[2] It was hosted many international bilateral and triangular ODI series and was selected to held 2010 Asia Cup.

Up to August 2016, in total the ground has been the venue for 48 One-Day International matches,[3] and 4 T20 International matches. All T20I matches were abandoned due to inclement weather.[4] Still, there was no any Test match held in the ground.

In cricket, a five-wicket haul (also known as a "five-for" or "fifer")[5][6] refers to a bowler taking five or more wickets in a single innings. This is regarded as a notable achievement.[7]

The first One Day International was played at the Rangiri Dambulla Stadium between Sri Lanka and England on 23 March 2001.[8] Since then there have been a total of 8 five-wicket hauls taken at the ground during ODIs. The first of these was achieved by Muttiah Muralitharan who took 5/23 for Sri Lanka against Pakistan in 2003, which is also the best bowling figures at the venue so far.[9] Sri Lankan pacer Lasith Malinga is the only player to take two five-wicket hauls at the venue.
