Sri Lanka vs Australia

The victory of Sri Lanka in the second Test against Australia at Galle was the first victory determined by innings victory. Earlier, Australia had lost the match to South Africa by an innings margin in Hobart in November 2016.

However, Australia has lost an innings in the subcontinent before in history. Australia lost by an innings and 219 runs against India in Kolkata in 1998 and by an innings and 135 runs at Hyderabad in 2013.

Match figures of Prabhat Jayasuriya at Galle, 12 for 177, are Sri Lanka’s best on Test debut and fourth overall in best-of-class. On the basis of his brilliant bowling, Australia succumbed to Sri Lanka in the second match. Praveen Jayavikrama took 11 wickets for 178 runs against Bangladesh. Jayasuriya’s match figures are also the second best for Sri Lanka in a Test match against Australia. Only Rangana Herath has better figures. He took 13 wickets for 145 runs in the 2016 Colombo Test.

Now let’s talk about Dinesh Chandimal’s amazing double century, which has left a different mark. With 206 * runs, Dinesh Chandimal became the first Sri Lankan player to score a double century against Australia. Kumar Sangakkara’s 192 in the 2007 Hobart Test was the previous highest individual score for a Sri Lankan batsman against Australia.

554 Sri Lanka’s first innings at Galle against Australia is their highest score in Test cricket. Only once had Sri Lanka managed to score a total of more than 500 against Australia before the Galle Test, 547 for eight in Colombo in 1992.

In this match, Australia scored a total of 364 runs in the first innings. This is his highest first innings score in Test cricket considering an innings defeat. His previous highest score was an all-out at 335 against England at Birmingham in 1985. This is only the third instance when Australia lost a Test match by an innings margin despite a total of over 350.

The Galle ground has also come at number three in terms of producing results in Test cricket. The results of the five-day matches at the Galle Ground have been found in 17 consecutive Test matches. It was started in 2014. Only two venues have yielded consecutive Test results – 37 by the Sydney Cricket Ground (from 1882 to 1947) and 31 by the Melbourne Cricket Ground (from 1882 to 1937).
