After an exhilarating performance against the number one T20I team Pakistan in Lahore, the Sri Lankan cricket team failed miserably on the fast-tracks of Australia.
Sri Lanka lost the opening two T20Is badly. In the first T20I match the host team bamboozled the visitors with some remarkable hitting and bowling. 2nd T20I was another easy grab for the Aussies against the vulnerable Sri Lanka side.
Sri Lanka played with a relatively inexperienced team against Pakistan as compared to their current squad. Under the leadership of Dasun Shanaka the Lankan Lions white-washed Pakistan at their own back-yard.
It looks like Sri Lanka is not mentally prepared to counter with the pace and bounce of the Australian tracks. Remember that the next ICC T20I World Cup is scheduled in Australia and Sri Lanka has to solve its problems against pace bowling if they want to do well in the mega-event.
