Sri Lanka

So Australia’s nightmare on the subcontinental pitches continued with their latest defeat against Sri Lanka in the second Test at Galle. Chasing an improbable target of 413 runs to level the three match series, the visitors failed once again with the bat and were dismissed for only 183, handing the hosts a huge victory of 229 runs. With the win the island nation completed a historic series win over the number one Test side of the world. This was their first series win over their fancied opponents in 17 years.

Dilruwan Perera, who took 4 wickets in the first innings, once again wreaked havoc on the Aussies and took six wickets. Skipper Steve Smith was the highest scorer for the Aussies with 30 runs. With the three-match series already decided, the caravan will now move to Colombo for the final Test which starts on 13 of this month.

Let us see how the twitterati reacted to the win:
