Howzat ?

A sunny afternoon in Galle and the young men grab their willows and their whites and head past the lighthouse onto the strip of green by the ramparts for a game of cricket.

Neither the non striker nor the fieldsman are entirely sure of the balls trajectory.

To add to the confusion just at that moment a Sri Lankan style pitch invasion occurs.
