Adapting to conditions key - Mathews
Sri Lanka captain Angelo Mathews believes that adapting to English conditions as quickly as possible will be his team's biggest challenge in their upcoming tour of England and Ireland.
Sri Lanka will kick-start their campaign with two ODIs in Dublin against Ireland, before moving to England for a one-off T20 international, 5 ODIs, and 2 Tests.
Mathews also said that he expected England to come hard at his team following a disappointing Ashes campaign in Australia, where they were trounced 5-0.
Even history is against Sri Lanka, who haven't won a Test in England since 2006, when they emerged victorious from the Nottingham Test by 134 runs to tie the three-match series 1-1.
