England fan who waited in Sri Lanka for 10 months excited for cricket to begin

Now Joe Root and his team are back, but with no fans allowed in the ground in Galle because of Covid-19 restrictions, Mr Lewis is unsure if or how he would be able to watch the game less than 24 hours before the start of the action.
