Sri Lanka vs England, 2nd Test Match
Following the victories over Sri Lanka, England put India to sword at home [Jul-Aug 2011]: India was white washed in the test series (5 matches) and then defeated India in 4 One day Internationals (5 matches) with 4th match ending in a tie; defeated India in the solitary T20 match. Soon it was India’s turn to return the favors: England was crushed in the 1st One day International at 14 October 2011 played in Delhi and the 2nd One day International in Delhi on17th October 2011. Both were humiliating losses. In spite of steamrolling Australia, beating Sri Lanka and battering India into total submission in England, now England, all of sudden, is on back foot in the subcontinent.
England tour of India 2011 is still in progress as we write this. Sri Lanka would relish the chance to batter England already demoralized in a sub continental series at the hands of Indians on the Indian soil. If India, with their rookies and without their top flight Cricket
ers, i.e., Zaheer Khan, Virendra Sehwag, Yuvraj Singh, V. V. S. Laxmann, Ishant Sherma and most of all, Tendulkar, all of whom are injured, ends up overwhelming England, Sri Lanka’s new blood would begin to feel still more emboldened. Sri Lanka’s young lions, Dinesh Chandimal and Lahiru Tirimanne have played well versus England [ May-Jun 2011] in the English wickets and have posted their colors to the mast in rare opportunities given to them. Those young batsmen would be licking their fingers to have a go against the English in local sub continental conditions. So is the Sri Lankan spinner Ajantha Mendis, who was sidelined during the English tour of Sri Lanka.
