Bowral Blues to go ahead with Sri Lanka tour

Colombo Cricket Club Ground 5722787660

The Bowral Blues Cricket Club will still be going ahead with their planned tour of Sri Lanka, despite the recent terrorist attacks which have killed 359 people.

At the moment the Australian Government is asking people to re- consider their travel.

The club will head off at the end of June and will play a series of matches in Colombo and Galle and hand over donated cricket gear which can be used by the local children.

They've been there a number of times before.

Mr. Martin says he's spoken to everyone going and no one wants to drop out.

He insists they get treated like Kings over there and have never had any complaints.
