2. End of the golden generation: During the late 90's, Sri Lanka experienced their first "golden generation" of Cricket with talented players such as Kumar Sangakarra,Arjuna Ranatunga, Aravinda De Silva, Sanath Jayasuriya, Marvan Atapattu, Chaminda Vass, Muttiah Muralitharan, Mahela Jayawardene,etc emeraged and catapulted Sri Lanka into a dominant cricket side.
