Travel Black Book: Having a ball in Sri Lanka

Apart from world-class cricket, the Indian Ocean island also offers golden beaches and green hills

Favourite destination: Sri Lanka. I've visited it more than 10 times since I fell in love with the country on my first trip there in 1978 while on a cricket tour.

Over the years, I have been enthralled by the warm and friendly locals, stunning sights, wonderful cricket pitches and clubhouses, a great variety of tasty food at affordable prices and amazing beaches.
