England Aim to Steady Ship in Sri Lanka

England will start their away series against Sri Lanka on 26 March hoping to erase memories of their ignominious whitewashing by Pakistan earlier in the year.  Their 3-0 loss in the UAE toppled the former Test Cricket League Champions from the no 1 spot, and they will know they must avoid defeat in this series to give themselves a realistic chance of retaking the lead when they play current top dogs, South Africa, in the summer.

Sri Lanka have fallen dramatically down the table since their own stint as Champions during the latter part of 2009 and now sit in 6th place.  However, they will feel more than capable of exploiting England’s much-publicised frailties in the Subcontinent in order to wrest the series trophy from English hands.  Regaining the trophy would not immediately have an impact on Sri Lanka’s position in the table, though they will close the gap on Asian rivals, Pakistan and India.

Similarly, England’s position will not change whether they win or lose.  Even so, the England players will be desperate to retain their trophy, proving to the doubters that they can conquer Asian conditions whilst also establishing momentum for the crucial series to come.
