Rex Clementine, in Sunday Island, 18 December 2016, where the title is “The Durban drubbing” … The highlighting emphasis is by The Editor, Cricketique.
With Sri Lanka’s cricketers touring South Africa, supporters reminisce the team’s stunning success in that country five years ago when Tillekeratne Dilshan’s side surprised many by recording their first ever Test win on South Africa soil. South Africa is perhaps the hardest place for Asian teams as conditions heavily favour the host country’s fast bowlers. All three sub-continent teams have poor records in South Africa and Sri Lanka has the worst. Prior to the 2011 series, Sri Lanka had played seven Tests in South Africa and had lost six games, three of them by an innings. Very few gave the tourists a chance. The first Test at Centurion was an absolute nightmare as the hosts completed an innings win inside three days.

A relieved and emotion filled Kusal Janith Perera said that his first goal was to get back to the national team and the financial losses he suffered during the ICC ban was only secondary. Addressing a packed press conference at Sri Lanka Cricket headquarters yesterday Perera who was freed of the disciplinary charges brought against him and the provisional suspension imposed on him by the International Cricket Council (ICC) said, “My primary goal is to get back into the team as quick as possible. To do that I must start practicing the more I practice the greater chance I have of regaining my form. I must also look into my fitness as well. During the period of my ban I wasn’t allowed to train with any SLC trainers.
