Fifteen minutes previously play started yesterday morning at the Sinhalese Games Club in Colombo, Britain’s save players and private alcove staff arranged on the edge of the square and with grave fixation recognized the little assembling occurring on the grass underneath the vast and all around delegated scoreboard. A gathering of Britain supporters, a large portion of them from the Barmy Armed force, met up to recollect and salute one of their own, Subside Marples, who had contracted pneumonia in Kandy ten days prior and kicked the bucket medium-term. This gravity stayed with Britain through the morning session. Only one wicket was taken and a by and large dull presentation permitted Sri Lanka once again into the match.
