0Super England Claim Super Series

With just one match left in this new “super series” format between Eng­land and Sri Lanka the home nation have proven them­selves com­pletely dom­in­ant
Win­ning the test series comes as no sur­prise – the vis­it­ors were nev­er going to be able to cope with Ander­son and Broad in home con­di­tions – but I expec­ted a stern­er test in the 50-over format.

Make no mis­take about it – Sri Lanka are a decent one day out­fit – with a lot of exper­i­ence run­ning through the side but Eng­land have simply swept them aside. Even in the match when they were chas­ing 300 plus in just over 40 overs the res­ult nev­er looked in doubt. The bat­ting line up is so strong – the num­ber 11 has a first class cen­tury or two to his name – and the bowl­ing attack strong and var­ied. I’ve been par­tic­u­larly impressed with Adil Rashid and Liam Plun­kett. With Ben Stokes due back I would expect Moeen Ali and Chris Jordan to make way but both will remain very much in the select­ors’ minds and it’s import­ant they con­tin­ue to play and be a part of the squad.
Great to see Joe Root to return to ‘form’ (‘form to Root is a rel­at­ive term to the rest of the mere mor­tals in the side).
Well done Eng­land!
