    Big squad the Sri Lankans are bringing. Don't see much role for a few of these allrounders and keepers but hey ho.

    Bowling could go pretty well during the test series but I don't expect much from their batting.

    I suppose a win is a win, but it's a great shame we'll already have the Test series wrapped up before the Lankans have even begun to get acclimatised to England in May

    Pakistan and Sri Lanka agree in principle to points system for England tour | Cricket | ESPN Cricinfo

    So I don't even know what the trophy is called that we play for against SL in tests, but if they do implement this points system over all the international tour games........is the test trophy still played for separately??

    What I mean is, if England win the test series 2-1 and then get mullared in the short formats, Sri Lanka can claim the tour points and the series win.........but are Eng still considered the test victors and awarded that trophy?

    Can you imagine the Ashes being decided in the one dayers?? That would be seriously ****ed if it is the case.

    I'm sure the trophies that already exist wouldn't be awarded for something other than they currently are. The points thing sounds like a new competition.

    I believe it's a national law in Sri Lanka that each Test squad has at least 4 keepers iirc

    With surnames like "Dickwella" I'd say the Christians names are rather superfluous.

    Can't wait for
    Dickwella to go up against Decock......

    At work we had to expand the first name box for the Sri Lankan entries (and match our current records with an entry where they had used a different subset of their Christian names, that was also good fun)

    Is Shanaka any good with the bat? Might be a good 5th option with the ball from what I saw in the WT20s, though I suppose Mathews' presence makes him a bit unnecessary.

    Especially in England, the 2 matches a couple years ago Mathews performed well with the bat and took 4 cheap wickets at Headingley

    Shanaka is more a t20 player so surprised that he is in the squad? Agree that our bowling looks reasonable but we need depth in batting. Personally i would have liked to see Vandersay in the squad as well as Dilruwan as we need a leggie imo but Dilruwan can bat..
