Sri Lanka declared their first innings in the second Test against Ireland on 704 for 3, the highest-ever total at the Galle International Cricket Stadium. 

The hosts took a lead of 212 as all of their top four batsmen scored centuries, with Nishan Madushka and Kusal Mendis scoring double tons. 

Sri Lanka's score surpassed the 638 Bangladesh scored at this venue in 2013, which was the hosts' previous highest at Galle coming in the first Test against Ireland, when they score 591 for 6 declared.

    When Srilanka embarked on the journey of test cricket , many teams set records against us. It was the same with Bangladesh . This is the reality . Ireland will improve as they get more chances in future. New corners will get more chances to improve

    Maldives is a good team. All teams are good. It's the question of who plays better cricket. So if Maldives plays better cricket, then they can win against any team. A great example of good team playing better cricket is Sri Lanka in the recent T20 Asia cup (2022). In terms of batting rankings and bowlers, both India and Pakistan had the upper hand against Sri Lanka. But Sri Lanka played better cricket and won the title for the 6th time.
