Former England skipper Michael Vaughan slammed the Sri Lankan Test team for their abysmal performance against England in their first Test. The Sri Lankan batsmen fell on their face while facing the visiting bowlers as they got all-out for just 135 runs in the first innings after opting to bat first at the Galle International stadium. The hosts only stood their ground for 46.1 overs as the Englishmen swiped the floors with them on Day 1.
