Sri Lanka's new chapter of cricketing incomprehensible

If you’re looking to make sense of Sri Lanka’s victory over England, turn back. This is not the place. You’ve come to the wrong part of town.

Thank you Pakistan for your contributions to the Canon of the Cricketing Incomprehensible. You haven’t been usurped exactly. You could be, soon. But take a knee for now, because in the first six months of 2019, Sri Lanka have been in more chaos, blown through more captains, endured more infighting, had a more paranoid coach, suffered more humiliating defeats, complained about more team buses, complained about more hotels, sucked harder at Test cricket, sucked harder at one-day cricket, and yet produced a Test series upset for the ages in South Africa, and now delivered the most surprising result of the World Cup.
