It says that the 2nd picture was taken in July, hope they finalize the stadium in time, anyways Sri Lankan team will not gain any home advantage when playing on these grounds,because they also are going to be new to these grounds :(

& in Hambantota there is heavy breeze, so pavilions also need to constructed in time to avoid breeze going across the ground !!
