Sri Lankan Cricket team just had a productive year in Test Cricket, mixed resulted year in ODIs and a fabulous year in T20Is in 2014 to go with a mixed bag in 2015 so far. They just seemed to be playing a new brand of Cricket which I thought would inject something positive for Sri Lanka Cricket in the future.
Yet I feel something is missing in them at the moment. They just lost to Pakistan by 10 wickets at Galle, one of their fortresses. This is their second defeat in three matches in the grounds beginning from their last defeat against South Africa in July 2014. Sri Lankans are still number 1 in T20I rankings and doing pretty good in ODIs although they need to learn and practice some of the tactics to be used in modern day Cricket and fine tune their play. But they have not become an International force in Test Cricket except for a handful of individual greats in the history of the game. That’s why I would like to pick Sri Lankan team’s performances in Test Cricket in to account on this article during the recent past.
