There is no taste.
Noted subcontinental team playing at the top level for 30 years does well in the subcontinent, the only place it's ever done well. That's in no way inconsistent with what I wrote in my erudite and measured first post in this thread; namely, SL has done SFA outside it's comfort zone and should therefore be rightly rounded upon as a disappointment.
Let's be honest here, they've had Sanga and Aravinda as truly world class bats; Malinga is their only true quick, and their spinners are uselsss away from the SC. You'd back yourself to play every SL bowler save Murali and Malinga with a stick of celery. I'd add Vaas to the list too, provided there's an impending thunder storm overhead and he gets the ball to move half a centimetre sideways.
Wouldn't give you two bob for the rest. Harsh, but fair.
Waiting for Muloghonto to reply that because he once pushed the heavy roller in close proximity to Jayawardene at the SSC, he's well qualified to comment and disagree.
I've said it before, and I'l say it again... (because who doesn't love a chubby little SLA master?)
Also, very early days but you may come to appreciate Eranga one day, maybe.
And tbf Burgey's point stands, no amount of WC wins in the SC will change the fact that SL suck at tests, particularly overseas

Pretty much, you can point out that we have a weakness in test cricket, but that's no reason to **** all over Sri Lanka as a cricket nation, especially given the LO achievements
