    spot on about the tour dates but I think the problem was that SL are due to tour NZ and SA soon so not sure if that got in the way and England couldn't come earlier due to the length of the indian series..

    The Indian series wouldn't have mattered as much had they not filled up the summer with trash ODIs.

    Might sneak a draw in the test series then.

    So I just found out you can't post links in VM's? Anyway this is for Essexboi's info as he was asking about the ticket situation for the tests in SL. Really, really poor move on the part of SLC, IMO. YOu can only milk the cash cow for so long before they say **** You.....

    tbh mate, not surprised at anything that SLC do but you can buy the tickets on the day as stated. Rrest assured that its not only the tourists that get ripped off by SLC, we went to watch Sl v SA T20 this year and arranged for a family member to buy tickets prior to our arrival and although the tickets stated 500 rupees on them, the ticket office sold each one at 750 rupees.. I know that the tickets being offered to the tour companies were hospitality tickets (hence the cost of them i.e air conditioned box and drinks etc) but I also know that at RPS the year before last, we bought upper tier stand seats for 1500 rupees ( just under 8 quid)..
    If It were me, I would stop at a food stall, beer shop and head up to the fort and watch..

    Thanks for the replies everyone. Such shortsighted thinking and quite frankly greediness from the SLCB and 'partners' Outrageous but I will not be deterred. If I can't get into the ground at Galle for a reasonable price I'll join the thousands on the ramparts. Pallekelle and Colombo could be tougher to watch tho as I'm too old to climb a tree. F*ck it, sure it'll be a good month or so whatever....apart from watching our top 3 (from naturally elevated areas).
    Cheers all... Any more info greatly received

    Dire. Hope you still have a great time as I'm sure SL has a lot more to offer than just the cricket.

    The Sri Lankan tour used to be by far the most popular tour for the BA regular travellers, but sadly the SLC just seem to think they are all rich white dudes who are there to be exploited. It will bite them in the arse big time for future tours.......Guarantee numbers will be well down this time and for the future it would not surprise me in the least if the BA (as in the tour group) boycott it all together.

    But total mismanagement by a cricket board?? Why would anyone be surprised?
