Sri Lanka has climbed into the fifth place of the ICC World Test Championship standings after crushing Pakistan by 246 runs in the second Test at Galle.
Both sides won one match each in the two-Test series between the two countries, which has been entertaining. With a four-wicket victory in the first Test, Pakistan took a 1-0 lead in the series. By chasing 342, the visitors improved their hopes of competing in the World Test Championship final the following year, moving up to third place in the standings, while Sri Lanka fell to No. 6.
Then, with Pakistan falling to No. 5 and Sri Lanka moving up to the third slot with a victory percentage of 53.33, the roles have been reversed. Pakistan, on the other hand, has slipped to No. 5 with a win percentage of 51.85.
With a PCT of 71.43 percent, South Africa continues to dominate the table, followed by Australia at 70 percent. When South Africa plays England in a three-match Test series next month, they stand a decent opportunity of expanding the lead.
Prabath Jayasuriya, a left-armer who made his Test debut earlier this month, was the mastermind behind Sri Lanka’s 246-run victory. He has taken 29 wickets in his six Test innings, including four five-wicket hauls as well as a 10-wicket match haul.
