Sri Lanka vs England, First ODI at Dambulla, Highlights

Morgan is largely responsible for England’s transformation into the best ODI side in the world

They have some experienced players...

Sri Lanka won the toss and opted to bowl on a dry pitch. If we play on the same wicket we might have to look at our team and likewise if we play on a fresh wicket we might look to play three out-and-out seamers. "It's been tricky in the past for England sides to come here".

Eoin Morgan has said he would be willing to drop himself from England's one-day side during the World Cup if it gave the team a better chance of winning.

"There is always pressure being number one".

"It is down to you to keep improving and try to stay there. I think in the dressing room we have a good understanding... and know that we need to keep improving and pushing the boundaries". However, 15 overs of play was all that was possible before rain pelted down on Wednesday (October 10).

Draconid Meteor Shower Lights Up The Skies This October
The meteors slam into the planet's atmosphere at full speed, producing bright flashes of light and meteor streaks across the sky. This event has gotten its name as a result of its meteor appearing to originate from the Draco, the Dragon constellation.

Morgan, with coaches Trevor Bayliss and Paul Farbrace, has been the architect of a spectacular transformation that now sees England top the 50-over rankings and favourites for the World Cup they host next summer.

Underdogs Sri Lanka are still reeling from the axing of captain Angelo Mathews after a dismal run of 30 losses in their last 40 ODIs including defeats to Bangladesh and Afghanistan in last month's Asia Cup. "He has impressed with the ball, especially in the warm-up game he played, he had an extra yard on the other players and coming in to fill Liam Plunkett's boots at the moment, there is no reason he can't do that".

"We have two games with reserve days - not to sound pessimistic - and we will get some forms of games in". "When the situation comes we have some game plans which we will have to execute".

"We have been trying to figure out where we have got things wrong", Chandimal said. Having played in the sub-continent conditions before, England will rely on them to counter the spin-threat posed by Sri Lanka while Jos Buttler, Ben Stokes and Moeen Ali will look to provide the late flourish.
