Eng­land’s cricket team take on hosts Sri Lanka at Galle on Novem­ber 6 at one of the world’s most beau­ti­fully sit­u­ated Test grounds. Built in 1876 as a race­course it switched to cricket in 1927. Next to the city’s 17th cen­tury Dutch fort, it has ocean on two sides – but that proved dis­as­trous in De­cem­ber 2004, when the In­dian Ocean tsunami caused ter­ri­ble dam­age.

After the disas­ter, it was used as a camp for sur­vivors and a he­li­pad. It re­opened three years later and is now back to its for­mer glory. NT
