Cricket – Root keen to find the right balance

Joe Root has warned the England players that they will need to adapt if they are to win the Test series in Sri Lanka. England have only won one series in Sri Lanka before - in 2001 - and are 10/3 with bet365 to emerge victorious in the first Test with the draw priced at 5/6. Root said: "It is a skill you need in Test cricket to be adaptable. "We are very blessed with this squad, we have plenty of different options and whatever 11 we go with we are going to have a great balance." England may field three spinners in the first Test - Moeen Ali, Adil Rashid and Jack Leach.
