They should give Stokes a rest. Let Curran try to be the all rounder the pundits think he can be.

I'd certainly be resting players ( Archer/Wood for sure) for the SL series as it'll be so One Sided (or should be!).. Although!! If they are resting then rest them from teh White ball as well.. Don't rest from red ball only to play white ball... If you must, play Tests and skip the White ball games.

Personally, touring against this SL team will not give much of an indication of the ability of much of this ENG squad. Yes they defeated SA in SA recently but look at how they're faring against ZIM. More than recent results it's how they're playing their cricket - it's very negative. I expected Dickwella, BKG Mendis to really push on but they haven't.

Lakmal and Embuldeniya the spearheads of such an average attack. The likes of Sibley / Crawley / Pope will be out of their comfort zone for sure, but to think this would be anything like playing Pak (A) or Ind (A) would be naive.

Saying that, runs for any of them will only cement their places on future tours but at the same time even if they don't have a great series, I can't see them being binned. I think the ECB will think they've shown enough thus far, and looking at what they've done with the announcement about Mahmood, Stone, Overton - they are looking to invest.

Delighted to see Foakes recalled and Bairstow dropped, not sure why Buttler is still there. Hope we see the better side of Jennings. Leaving Anderson out is probably the right thing to do as well.
