England's Bairstow to miss Sri Lankan Test

  • Keaton Jennings made a confidence-boosting 45 for England

Opener Kaushal Silva plays his first Test for Sri Lanka in over a year, but there is no place for Roshen Silva, who had had a modest series against South Africa in June.

Both Burns, who was in the original England squad for this series, and Foakes, who was brought into the squad as injury cover for regular Test wicketkeeper Jonny Bairstow, are Surrey county players.

When Bairstow missed the fourth Test against India in September with a broken finger, Jos Buttler kept wicket instead but now Foakes is in line for a first cap, the first England debutant behind the stumps since Buttler in 2014.

Asked whether Cook had been in touch to wish good luck as England set about trying to end a winless streak of 13 Tests away from home, Root replied: 'He hasn't yet. Of course we'll miss him, but it's a chance to stand up and do something special for England'.

But games can move quickly here. There has only been one draw in the last 14 Tests here, with Sri Lanka winning nine of those games on a pitch that has always favoured spin. Herath is playing his final Test, his 93rd since his debut in 1999. England hasn't won its previous four Tests in Galle. Who will bat No. 3 - pah!

To Galle then, at this ungodly hour, and the lovely ground overlooked by the ancient old fort, where Sri Lanka and England start the first of three Tests at 4.30am GMT.

'There's no excuse for feeling undercooked, ' he said. 'We're aware that the weather's going to be an issue throughout the tour, and we have to make the most of the opportunities we get.
