Just because Sri Lanka lose four finals in a row doesn't make them chokers. As you say, they were generally dominated apart from this year, where still wouldn't call it a choke.
But choking by the players is exactly for the reason you have mentioned "analysing too much in-depth" about how to perform in a pressure situation and completely getting confused" instead of playing with a free mind ..easier said than done though..It tends to happen more in Tennis..so many examples of players not able to close out matches..
