After all the talk of a ‘new era,’ the time has come for England to assert their dominance once more on the international stage. This week they begin the first of five ODIs against current world champions, Sri Lanka.
Alastair Cook, the much criticised England Captain, is looking to re-establish his form of old and start the season with a string of victories. Well aware of how dangerous the Sri Lankans are, particularly in a One Day capacity, Cook knows his team must get the basics right and do their talking on the pitch – ‘All that stuff about the fresh start may be brilliant,’ said Cook earlier this week, ‘but now it’s all down to playing some good cricket.’
