Jaysuriya, aravinda da silva and dilshan were also more then handy in these conditions.
And for good reason. It was always Murali and not much else, except the current pair who are now the chief destroyers. Funny you should mention historical fast bowling because Nic Boje remains our top wicket taker in Sri Lanka. Again, spin rules on those pitches.
