List of international cricket five-wicket hauls on Sri Lankan cricket grounds

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki


The Sri Lanka national cricket team played their first international cricket in 1926/27. The team played its first full international match, a One Day International (ODI), during the 1975 Cricket World Cup, and were awarded Test cricket status in 1982, making Sri Lanka the eighth Test cricket playing nation.

In cricket, a five-wicket haul (also known as a "five-for" or "fifer") refers to a bowler taking five or more wickets in a single innings. This is regarded as a notable achievement.[1] This article details the five-wicket hauls taken on Sri Lankan grounds in official Test, One Day International and Twenty20 International matches.
