Can we repeat the 1996 feat?

In 1995/1996 our cricketers toured Australia. During that Test series and Tri-Nation cricket tournament our lads had to undergo so many difficulties. But all those problems made our team very tough and prepared to face any problem.
Mentally our lads became very strong. Immediately after that World Cup was played in subcontinent. Our players had the passion and determination to win the World Cricket Cup.
Our lads did it in style by winning all their matches. Unfortunately Australians and West Indians did not come to Sri Lanka making lame excuses, but our lads made mighty Aussies eat humble pie at Lahore in the finals. Reminder that Sri Lanka was the first team to become world champions by winning all their matches.
