No Test Match, but the draw went ahead.

When Belinda suggested taking in the test match in Galle, little did we know what unprecedented world event would unfold.NPCC Galle

The day before we left the test was called off, but we decided to travel after much discussion. As Sri Lanka had only 1 recorded case of the virus and that was in January, we thought there was as safe as anywhere.

NPCC Sri Lanka



Galle was lovely and we paid a visit to the (very empty) ground to see what is regarded as one of the most picturesque test venues in the world. One of the Galle cricket club senior staff members Asintha very kindly let us in for a look round and to take a few photos.

We then by chance EmojiEmoji found the 100 club draw numbers in my ruck sack and Asintha performed the March draw outside the club.


After this things began to close and we hastily rescheduled our flightNPCC Tour Flag home 5 days early. The last 3 days the island went into curfew, so we were confined to our hotel with 2 other couples. Very poor conditions there, these included the hotel being right on the beach, unbroken sunshine, 32 degree heat and the bar being re-stocked just before the curfew was announced.
All very traumatic ( We cant wait to go back Emoji)

Stay safe everyone
