Cricket in Galle Feb 11-18th?

We are likely to visit Galle over this period & just wondered if there is likely to be any cricket played during this period? I'm not a cricket fan, just thought it might be an interesting atmosphere.

The national team is in Bangladesh and no local tournament seems to be planned at Galle.

Only chance is a school match being played at Galle.

Yes, a good site, but it does not show any cricket in Galle for that period.

The army guys in Galle played a cricket match outside their barracks the night we were there. Interesting game as some where 'fielding' in the road.

All stopped for a few minutes while the flag was lowered.

Hi. I am in Galle from 9th April until 23rd April and would like to watch ANY cricket. Looked on Web including ESPN but nothing showing. Anyone out there from Galle with any local knowledge or information of fixtures?

Regards.
