Sri Lanka Vs England 1st Test Match 26 Mar Live

Ravi BoparaThe top test side in the world, England move on to their next challenge on the Asian frontier as they prepare to face Sri Lanka in the two-test series starting from Monday. After getting whitewashed in the test matches against Pakistan in UAE, there are still plenty of question marks over their ability to succeed in conditions away from home.

While preparations for the Pakistan series were immense, the execution simply was way off. Even better preparations have been made for the current tour, and with the opponents' bowling attack not as potent compared to Pakistan, it presents a real opportunity for England to win on Sri Lankan soil after a decade. The build-up to the first test has been near-perfect for the tourists as they won both their warm-up matches, including chasing a 359-run target in the fourth innings.

The team management will have their work cut out though. While Stuart Broad is expected to be a part of the playing team after recovering from the ankle injury, the right combination is a big puzzle for them. Broad's presence slates in an important all-rounder at No. 7. Ravi Bopara is likely to take the dropped Eoin Morgan's place at number six, though playing Samit Patel is also an option.

Sri Lanka have had their ups and downs in the past 12 months, with the latest being their winless return from the Asia Cup. While they have been playing limited overs cricket for the past couple of months, they did score a memorable test win in South Africa earlier. In terms of their squad, Angelo Mathews' injury is a huge setback with his bowling career in jeopardy. Chamara Silva replaces him in the squad. In familiar conditions, it will still be a test for Sri Lanka to succeed in the post-Muralitharan era.

The match will be played in Galle where the two sides have been involved in drawn test matches on the last two tours.
