    No wonder SL is one of the poorest third world countries . Rich would come to grounds with security and their dogs! What a joke! I do feel for these poor chaps. God bless

    Screw you australian 1 . This has nothing to do about how poor Sri Lankans are. This is a situtation where thr young guys are excited that Sri Lanka is in the finals and they want to go and watch the game. If they were poor and had no money they wouldnt be scrambling for tickets. these tickets were not free. they were there to pay money and buy tickets. UNLIKE THE WHITE GUY WHO STOLE TICKETS AND GOT ARRESTED TWO DAYS AGO.

    Actually SL are very rich. Thats why they pay Rs. 5000 for Rs. 500 ticket in the black market.
