A Day at the Cricket, Chittagong / by David Johnstone

‘I don’t like cricket...’

Ah, the sound of leather on willow, an ice cream and the local newspaper at hand.

I like to take in a little cricket when I’m on my travels and there’s no better place than the subcontinent.

Bangladesh v Sri Lanka Day 3 was never gonna be a riveting watch. Nonetheless it was wonderfully soporific and I was surrounded by some lovely locals. Though the crowd was spartan, the atmosphere was jocular and friendly.

The game, incidentally, ended in a draw.
