England’s cricketers have touched down in Sri Lanka for a two-month tour – and talkSPORT will be with them every step of the way.
There’s plenty to look forward to with the early focus on the ODI side and their World Cup preparations throughout October.
After Joe Root’s Test side beat World No1 side India over the summer, they will be keen to test themselves in different conditions with a new-look batting lineup.
There is a chance for Rory Burns and Keaton Jennings to make the opener positions their own, whilst Jack Leach and Ollie Pope also make the trip.
