Sri Lanka is another team that can change its captain after the ICC World Test Championship final. Like West Indies, Sri Lanka also witnessed a poor show in the tournament. The Asian team played 6 bilateral series during the tournament. Out of 12 matches, they managed to win just 2 and lost 6 while 4 matches ended in a draw.
With just a PCT of only 27.8, they finished on the second last 8th spot in the points table. Sri Lanka was led by Dimuth Karunaratne for the majority of the matches during the tournament. The left-handed batsman led Sri Lanka in 10 matches during WTC, winning just 2 and losing 4, while 4 games ended in a draw. With his poor record of leading the team in the tournament, he might be replaced as the Test skipper of Sri Lanka.
