Despite the fact that the first Test in Chattogram ended in a draw, Sri Lanka were spectacular in the second Test against hosts Bangladesh, defeating the hosts by 10 wickets.

Cricket is without a doubt Sri Lanka's most popular sport, however, the outcome of the Test series win should not worry many people in the island nation right now. They are facing a more serious challenge, the country's worst-ever financial and political crisis since its independence in 1948, with all sections of the economy on the verge of collapsing.

After Lankans arrived in Bangladesh, questions about Sri Lanka's current situation have been asked frequently in press conferences.

"Everyone knows what's happening. We're here to play cricket and that's the only thing we are concerned about. The only thing we can do is to bring a good result for the people there," said Dimuth Karunaratne, the Sri Lanka skipper ahead of the first Test.

Sri Lanka's wicketkeeper-batsman echoed his captain's sentiments after winning the series, saying that the victory will be a happy moment for the country's citizens.

"We came here to play cricket. We left those things behind, and came to win the series, so it will be a good plus point for Sri Lanka as we are going through a hard time back home” said Dickwella.

In the present World Test Championship (WTC), this was Sri Lanka's third win in six matches, and they are currently fourth in the point’s table.
