To those English people who asked about the price of tickets for the test matches... we told you they would be dead cheap. Last September I paid 250 LKR for the best seat in Kandy's new ground to watch Australia. But in Galle today they decided to up the price to 5000 LKR, thereby taking advantage of the large number of England supporters. This was only done at the last minute, once the English had arrived in town. Yet again greed rules and it is no surprise that an increasing number of people are turning their backs on SL due to this desire to charge crazy prices for anything visitors want to see.
