    Wouldn't mid that, shows how mad it is though that we have no clue who the openers will be. Could just as easily be Jennings and Denly.

    I think they intend on taking Broad. Root has said that he wants Broad in Sri Lanka for the experience he brings or whatever it was. Of course, he might not go because of his injury but I think its more likely that he will be in the squad at least.

    but rashid actually bowled pretty damn well in india. its weird that no one wants to admit it.

    anyway, this will be a 3-0 demolition job by sri lanka in the tests.

    england to win at a canter in the odis.

    As far as I've seen everyone wants Burns opening. Most people have Leach in too.

    England should drop Broad, play Rashid as an(other) all rounder.

    Burns
    Whatever
    Ali
    Root
    Stokes
    Bairstow
    Buttler
    Curran
    Rashid
    Leach
    Anderson

    So you get 3 pacers, 3 spinners and 4.5 batsmen in total.

    He did bowl well and should never have been dropped, fact is he also should never have been picked this summer either.

    Yeah but Ed Smith probably has different plans.

    Probably pick Denly and Dawson.

    From memory didn't Rashid just get tail enders out and a couple of batsmen once they had made the score? Picked up a few wickets but always gave away 40-50+ runs between them. That doesn't sound that great in favourable conditions. Yet still, the standard of averaging high 40s with the ball is set by the continued selection of Mark Wood.

    Root will be playing his 75th test at Galle, and his 1st in Sri Lanka.

    England bats are going to be the key.

    I don't think any of their top 8 have played Tests in Sri Lanka.

    So this is going to be difficult.

    Even Saffers that had Elgar,Amla,DuPlessis,Kock who has played tests before in SL struggled.

    Massive test for England batsmen therefore.

    Hopefully we can win this 3-0 and give Herath a gala retirement.

    Batters wise, Chandimal will return to the team after missing out SA series.

    Kusal Mendis and Roshen Silva badly need runs.

    English will be much better against spin than Saffers. Don't see wickets turning square that will narrow the margin between Rashid and Moeen and Sri Lankan spinners. It would be tracks with just enough spin, high scoring matches. Some times may be dull draws. Anything other than that would suggest the "pitch doctoring accusations" by Al Jazeera true.
    Supporting players: Dinesh Chandimal, Roshen Silva, Kusal Janith, Nuwan Pradeep, Kasun Rajitha, Lahiru Kumara, Akila Dhananjaya, Dhananjaya de Silva

    Whatever way the wickets end up it's hard to see how England will not lose comfortably.

    England are pretty terrible when it is flat these days. The batsmen just don't have the concentration and skill to bat long enough to win/draw games. Last tour of India on real flat wickets and they lost 4-0. Plus they don't have the bowlers on flat wickets to take wickets.
