The converse is also true, only one of the three seamers troubled the Sri Lankans throughout the match. Sibo and Anderson weren't too bad in the first innings though even then they weren't amongst the wickets.
When in recent times though has playing two spinners worked? We tried in Pakistan for the first two tests to play two spinners and then abandoned it in the 3rd test and played Plunkett.
