Sooriyawewa is set to host its first ODI in two years, when Zimbabwe tour Sri Lanka in June and July.

However, SLC has said that before the ground is fit for international cricket again, it will need to undergo renovations.

Though the stadium is less than seven years old, Sooriyawewa is the most far-flung of Sri Lanka's grounds - situated 30 kilometres from Hambantota, which in any case is little more than a small fishing town.

As such the board reported that the stadium had "fallen into a state of disrepair".
