known as: County Ground, Ashley Down Ground
Pitch type: Grass
End names: Pavilion End, Ashley Down Road End
The ground which is now sponsored by Sun Alliance is synonymous with the feats of the mighty Dr. WG Grace and Gilbert Jessop. India and Sri Lanka have not faced each other on this ground but India played Kenya in the 1999 World Cup, wining by 94 runs with both Sachin Tendulkar and Rahul Dravid scoring centuries. Sri Lanka played New Zealand in the 1983 World Cup and lost by five wickets.
