Everyone in Galle was looking forward to the Cricket test match against England in spring 2012 and most rooms in Galle and Unawatuna are already booked out.
Separamadu Lasith Malinga had been one of the recent Cricket legends coming out of Southern Galle, where the tremendous fast bowler was called "the Slinga" since after he had written history at the Super 8 on Barbados, where the Sri Lankan cricketer had lost the final against Australia.
Everyone calls him Murali and the real name of the Sri Lankan Cricket legend is Muttiah Muralitharan, who became the highest wicket-taker in Test cricket when he overtook the previous record-holder Shane Warne in 2007.
The International Cricket Stadium in Galle is located right next to the Indian Ocean and many times Cricket legends like Murali and Malinga have shown their tremendous skills to their beloved home audience which can only be described as Cricket crazy.
The Cricket Stadium in Galle was fully refurbished and it looks so very good.
