An Australian, arrested on charges of running naked on Pallekele International Cricket Stadium Turf during the rain delay on the opening day of the first test match between Australia and Sri Lanka, was sentenced to one week's simple imprisonment and a fine of Rs.3,000 imposed by the Kandy Magistrate today.
The man in the nude was captured on video while he was standing on the turf. (Nadeeka Daya Bandara)
Short of cash. He got free accomodation with full board.

Absolutely, where is sri Lanka's developed economy, good governance, or independent judiciary, compared to a country like Australia?Nearly 70 years since independence and you have spent most of it going backwards.

He should have gotten a couple years, there could be children there, indecent exposure in front of a minor.

He should be kept in jail without clothes so that the inmates could have some entertainment poking fun at him!!!

He would have thought he was going for a dip in the Victoria as the ground was covered with water due to rain so pardon him
