What are The Reasons Behind the Downfall of Sri Lankan Cricket

reason behind the downfall of Sri Lankan Cricket

What are the reasons behind the downfall of Sri Lankan Team?

There was a time when Sri Lanka was one of the best cricket teams in the world. They surprised the world with their maiden World Cup title in 1996.
Sri Lanka was a team who was equipped with the player like Arjuna Ranatunga, Arvind D’Silva, Chaminda Vaas, Muthaiya Muralidharan Marven Atapattu, and Kaluvitrana.
At the beginning of the first decade of the 21st century above mentioned players were replaced by Kumar Sangakkara, Mahela Jayawardene, Tillakaratne Dilshan, and Lasith Malinga.

Sri Lanka kept performing well in all the tournaments organized by ICC till 2015. But for the last few years, we have seen the downfall of Sri Lanka.
Srilanka played two consecutive world cup final, one in 2007 and the second one is in 2011. Sri Lanka was runner-up in both the finals.
What are the reasons behind the downfall of the Sri Lankan cricket team?
1. The main reason behind the downfall of the Sri Lankan team was the retirement of great players like Mahela Jayawardene, Tillakaratne Dilshan, and Sangakkara in a quick span. Chaminda Vaas and Muralidharan had already taken their retirement before these three legends of Sri Lanka.
2. Somehow Sri Lankan Cricket Board is also responsible for the downfall of Sri Lankan team with people in the selection and higher management, including ex-players who reported being involved in corruption.
3. It is also heard that Sri Lanka Cricket Board doesn’t pay well to their players on time. This is yet another reason for the downfall of  Sri Lankan team.

4. The contribution of their legends is very less after their retirement. Legends are interested in politics and commentary.
