As Sri Lanka get ready to take on Australia, the host nation are gearing up to give a fitting tribute to the late legend Shane Warne.

Both the Test matches between Sri Lanka and Australia will be played in Galle, a ground which was close to Warne's heart since this was the venue where Warne picked up his 500th Test wicket.

Warne had also provided financial aid and visited affected areas in the aftermath of the 2004 Tsunami that had wrecked Galle.
