The Sri Lankan Cricket Team is a national cricket team representing the island nation of Sri Lanka. The team first began playing international cricket in 1975, and were later granted Test status in 1981. The islanders had some talented cricketers in their ranks but only were transformed from the underdog status to a major cricketing nation during the nineties. The biggest achievement for Sri Lankan cricket was lifting the 1996 Cricket World Cup beating Australia in the finals, and becoming the World Champions. Ever since that shining moment, Sri Lanka has continued to throw up exciting cricketers who have immensely contributed to international cricket. Batting stalwarts like Aravinda de Silva, Arjuna Ranatunga, and Sanath Jayasuriya backed up by the bowling of Muttiah Muralidaran and Chaminda Vaas have been instrumental in bringing many laurels to Sri Lankan cricket during the last 15 years.
