Quiz! Name the Test XIs the last time Sri Lanka beat England at home

by Wisden Staff 6 minute play

In this quiz, you have to name the Test XIs the last time Sri Lanka beat England at home.

England are currently enjoying a rare spell of overseas dominance against another Test side. Their victory in the first Test of the ongoing series at Galle continued a run of wins in Sri Lanka which now stands at five, and their last defeat in the country came all the way back in 2012.

Since then, both teams have changed dramatically. Two Sri Lankans who played in that game played in the first Test in 2021, while two Englishman who featured in that game will play in this series, with one replacing the other for the second Test.

That’s enough hints. You have six minutes. Good luck!
