'We are well placed to claim a Test series win,' says Strauss

London , Wed, 08 Jun 2011 ANI

London, June 8 (ANI): Captain Andrew Strauss has said that England is well poised to claim a Test series win over Sri Lanka when they take on the visitors at the Rose Bowl in the third and final Test next week.


"Over the last 18 months, we've prided ourselves on just how consistent we have been as a bowling line-up. But the guys are not machines, and sometimes the rhythm's not there - and it's hard work. I was very happy with the way the guys came back and improved as the game went on. We're not going to play the perfect Test match every time - we've got to be realistic about that - but the most important thing is we don't make the same mistake twice," The Telegraph quoted Strauss, as saying.


England are expecting James Anderson to return after a minor side injury to lead the attack at the Rose Bowl, meaning any one of the three pace bowlers in action at Lord's could conceivably have to give way.


Sri Lanka captain Tillakaratne Dilshan is highly unlikely to have recovered in time from the thumb broken by Chris Tremlett, and Kumar Sangakkara is expected to lead the tourists on the south coast. (ANI)
