The Cricket Club Cafe in Colombo is popular, as is the Inn on the Green.

In Kandy there's The Pub if you want loud music and a party atmosphere, and The Pub Royale if you want to be able to hold a conversation without having to shout.

I don't know how many are going, because most BA people only do Tests, but it does look as if there'll be a few at least.

Me and my dad are flying out on the 14th Sept for 3 games plus as many warm up games we can get to. Its our first time abroad to watch cricket. We've actualy got a spare ticket for the Aus v Ire, Ind v Afg and Eng v Afg games. If you cant get a ticket for them games give me a email and u can have them. bobdabuilder7@hotmail.com
The Cricket Cafe does look like the place to be aswell as the bigger hotel bars in colombo.
