Potential is massive though!
While the significance of England's series victory cannot be understated, let's not forget this Sri Lankan side is probably on the same level as a team from the lower end of Division 1 (County) or the higher reaches of Division 2. With Herath over-the-hill/missing, they had no bowlers who could actively trouble the batsmen. Burns has shown signs that he belongs at this level but greater tests lie ahead.
The spinners were the biggest positive from England's perspective but I wonder who they'll go with when they can choose only two. Moeen rightly seems like a shoo-in at the moment due to his all-round prowess but who will support him? Rashid and Leach are extremes in their own right, one being too volatile and the other being so steady that he risks being pedestrian at times. The team isn't any closer to unearthing genuine fast bowlers to support Anderson and Broad as well. We'll have to stay patient to see the real potential of this English side. There are some obvious gems in there but so are glaring holes which people seem to miss.
327 is a very high target, think SL will collapse
Can only see one way this game is going although I think the scores have been slightly flattering for England...….but it should take nothing away from winning in very un-England like conditions!
I cannot decide if England have been that good or Sri Lanka that bad ?
A better side would have punished England more but we take what we get!
