Sri Lanka have touched down in England as they look to back up their Test-series victory over Alastair Cooks side in 2014 - but can Angelo Mathews team win again? Sky Sports Dominic Cork has his doubts. Linval Joseph Jersey ... This Sri Lanka team is different to the one of two years ago, with quite a lot of senior members retired or injured.Theyre led quite well by Angelo Mathews, who has had to step up with Kumar Sangakkara, Mahela Jayawardene and Tillakaratne Dilshan all gone. He will have to bowl, bat and captain extremely well in order to get this young Sri Lankan side to put England under pressure, though there are a couple of other players you should keep your eye on. Sri Lankas cricketers received a Buddhist blessing in Colombo before flying to England Vice-captain Dinesh Chandimal is an exciting batsman, though as a senior player, he now needs to push on a bit.Suranga Lakmal, meanwhile, has a bit of pace and Dhammika Prasad is a good bowler - he took six wickets in Sri Lankas win at Headingley in 2014.I have also known Rangana Herath for a long time, having played with him at Hampshire.Hes a terrific spinner, but will he be needed much in this series? You dont normally see too much turn at Headingley or up in Durham. Sri Lanka head coach Graham Ford is confident he will get a great idea of the stage his team are at when they face England this summer The squad as a whole has a lot of unknowns - Englands hierarchy will have to do a lot of homework on a lot of guys that they havent yet come up against, so they are going to be a test.But with the squad they have this year compared to years past, youd say England would have to play very poorly to lose a Test match, or even the series.England certainly wont take a win for granted but a few players have come into the side and dominated for them since that defeat. Cork wants to see Steve Finn in Englands bowling attack to face Sri Lanka Plus, England will have a say in what sort of wickets are prepared - Id get them as quick as possible and go in with the attack of James Anderson, Stuart Broad and Steven Finn.I think England to win the series, maybe 2-0, which would be a nice starter for what looks likely to be a great series against Pakistan later in the summer.Watch Englands three-Test series with Sri Lanka live on Sky Sports, starting with the first Test, at Headingley, from Thursday, May 19.

Getting set to go their separate ways for a short Christmas break, the Raptors coach credited his team for their effort on a seemingly impossible three-game road trip, urging them to build on that success when they get back to work at the end of the week.
