GALLE:

Eng­land skip­per Joe Root is hop­ing the drought-snapping Test vic­tory over Sri Lanka on Fri­day will prove just the start of a run of suc­cess away from home for his team. “It’s not just us, like we’re the only side that strug­gles away from home, it’s across the board in test cricket,” said the 27-year-old bats­man. “That makes it even sweeter when you do come to a very dif­fi­cult venue, like Galle, and man­age to win. “Hope­fully we can build on this and it’s not just a one-off for us. We can go to Kandy with huge amounts of con­fi­dence.”
