Sri Lanka v Australia 2003-04

To Kandy, chop chop

December 8, 2008

Text size: A | A



Matthew Hayden: This is me looking out of a helicopter in Sri Lanka. We were going from Galle to Kandy during the 2004 tour. Since it's a long bus journey and the army actually presented us with the opportunity to go up there in a helicopter, we did. Also, the ground situation was not safe enough for a surface journey as the civil war was on. It was a twin-prop machine. I managed to get a window, as you can see. I've grown up in the middle of nature, and I wanted to get some fresh air! Photograph by Getty Images
