Sri Lanka has banned people from hanging their washing out to dry near a cricket ground in Colombo where World Cup games will be played, a news report said on Sunday.

The residents and shop owners around the R Premadasa Stadium, which will host seven matches, were issued the orders by Colombo city authorities this week, the island's Sunday Times newspaper said.

"These include abstaining from hanging out clothes for drying in public view, putting out garbage on the roadsides and engaging in street games such as hopscotch and cricket matches," the paper said.

The 35,000-seater stadium, which will be the venue for three Sri Lanka games and one semi-final, is surrounded by low-income housing schemes.
