Australia will thrash Sri Lanka in the Tests and it won’t be close | The Roar

Australia will thrash Sri Lanka in the Tests and it won’t be close | The Roar: Sri Lanka will rely overwhelmingly on three players in the Test series against Australia which starts on Tuesday.
Captain Angelo Mathews, keeper-batsman Dinesh Chandimal and spinner Rangana Herath will have to play out of their skins if Sri Lanka are to push the tourists.
That trio have been carrying the Sri Lankan team since the retirements 11 months ago of legendary batsmen Kumar Sangakkara and Mahela Jayawardene.
In that time, Sri Lanka have played eight Tests for two wins, five losses and a draw. Their victories came at home against the West Indies, who are an absolute basketcase. Among their five losses were three very heavy defeats, two by an innings and another by nine wickets.
