Forward or back: which way for Sri Lanka on shaky ground?

They are low on confidence, their ODI form has hit a terrible trough, and on Tuesday they travel to a bogey venue to meet fearless opponents who have little to lose.

If the Sri Lankans had to pick a ground in the UK where the grace of the gods and good fortune would fall their way, Cardiff would not be it. Not only have Sri Lanka lost every one of the six matches – one Test and five ODIs – they have played at Sophia Gardens, the results have been dire. Be it the 136 all out to New Zealand two days ago in their world cup opener, losing a spot in the Champions Trophy final to India in 2013, or a second-innings collapse from hell.
