Nobody gave them a chance at the beginning of the series, including myself, to be honest. But at the end of an exciting series, a young team of Sri Lanka created history by dethroning the world no. 1 Test team in Australia, defying all odds. As we all know, this series win has become one of the best, if not the best, in Sri Lanka Cricketing history.

This post is to introduce some awards for the series, which are imaginary at best, according to the way the series panned out.

Sri Lanka won only their second Test series since August 2014 and six Test series after the win over Pakistan in our own great Mahela Jayawardena’s farewell series, apart from a Test series win over hapless West Indies in October 2015.
