Took a wander around the old fort from where you can watch the mach for free. Famously, the cheapest seat in international cricket.
Two days before the start of the match and the stadium is still in a bit of a state. This will be the first test match to be held at Galle since the tsunami in 2003. The ground has been rebuilt and a new pitch laid and the locals are pulling out all the stops to get everything ready on time. All around you can see reminders of the disaster that struck 4 years ago; derelict homes, roadside graveyards, abandoned boats etc. It's a big occasion for the locals no question.
