A Briton yesterday pleaded guilty to stealing tickets for a crunch World Twenty20 match between hosts Sri Lanka and defending champions England.
Police said Caesar Buller, 54, had gone to a sales booth in the capital Colombo on Sunday and pocketed four books of tickets for Monday’s game, which Sri Lanka won.
He was arrested after sales staff raised the alarm.
