England has won the 15 out of the 34 test matches played between the two sides and was on the losing end only 8 times. But the 5 out of those 8 loses came on Sri Lankan soil which shows how much fight Sri Lanka can put up at their own backyard. England secured 7 test wins in Sri Lanka out of 16 test matches.
Since retirement of Muttiah Muralitharan and Rangana Herath Sri Lanka’s power at home soil decreased a bit as they haven’t found a match wining spinner but Diluruwan Parera can be helpful in Sri Lanka and have the ability to surprise opposition.
England also lacking a proper wicket taking spinner since retirement of Graeme Swann who was inspirational in England’s success in sub-continent during early part of this decade.
Things will be even stevens during this tour and home soil can only be taken as advantage for the preparation of the series.
Players to be looked out on both side will be Dimuth Karunaratne, Dhananjaya De Silva and Kausal Mendis are the up and coming Sri Lankan batting stars in test arena, on the other hand Joe Root, Ben Stokes and Jofra Archer are the new torch bearers of English cricket
