The Sinhalese Sports Club Ground (SSC) Colombo is one of the largest and most famous cricket grounds of Sri Lanka. The ground houses the headquarters of Sri Lanka Cricket, and is perhaps only the second to the Premadasa Stadium as being the top cricket stadium in the country.

Cricket has been played here since 1974. As the years passed by, the ground has seen some major renovation and the facilities have improved. From building new stand to an air-conditioned commentary box, the ground has had a major facelift. The SSC has been witness to some of Sri Lankan cricket's greatest moments. It was here that Sri Lanka registered their first ODI win against a Test playing nation (when they beat Pakistan in 1986 by five wickets). Muttiah Muralitharan and Chaminda Vaas have also been vastly successful on this ground.

The Stadium was formerly known as Maitland Palace and has capacity to hold 10000 people. The ground doesn't have floodlights and its two ends are named as the Tennis Courts' and the South Ends.
