Pakistan has won a notable victory against Sri Lanka with a remarkable lead of 222 runs in the second Test held in Colombo. This makes it a 2-0 win for the series. Pakistan’s win helps them secure their place as the team with the highest number of Test series wins in Sri Lanka.
This defeat for Sri Lanka is also notable in their Test cricket history. It’s the largest defeat they’ve faced on their home turf. This surpasses an earlier massive defeat they suffered at the hands of South Africa in 1993 when they lost by an inning and 208 runs.
The first Test in Galle was also a win for Pakistan, who beat the home team by four wickets. This latest series win is Pakistan’s fifth time winning a Test series in Sri Lanka. They’ve overtaken other top cricketing countries like Australia and England, which have only won four Test series in Sri Lanka.
