England is considering leaving James Anderson and Stuart Broad out of the squad that will tour Sri Lanka later in the year.
 
Although there is little doubt that Anderson, in particular, remains England's best bowler, it is understood the England management are aware of the need for succession planning and may use the three-Test series in Sri Lanka to explore their options.
 
Anderson and Broad have taken the new ball together for more than a decade and are the two highest wicket-takers in England's Test history.
 
It would seem the likes of Jamie Porter, Sam Curran and, if fit, Jamie Overton may have an opportunity to stake a claim in Sri Lanka alongside the more experienced Chris Woakes.
 
The first Test begins in Galle on November 6 followed by matches in Pallekele and Colombo.
