England 'happy favourites' against Sri Lanka, Buttler says

Morgan is largely responsible for England’s transformation into the best ODI side in the world

That, after rain in the lead-up to the first One-Day International in the five-match series between Sri Lanka and England to kickstart a long tour for the visitors.

England want Warwickshire's express paceman to provide the X-factor so often lacking in overseas conditions, and the indications on Tuesday night were that he would be given an early chance in Sri Lanka to parachute himself into the World Cup side.

"Very happy being favourites".

"It's a fearless call but we've come a long way with this team".

In the period Morgan, who is England's leading ODI run-scorer, has averaged 41.79 but such is the batting strength available that any blip in form stands out. They have some experienced players... "It's been tricky in the past for England sides to come here". Meanwhile, the cricketer has also cleared that he won't hesitate from the team during the World Cup if it is benefitting the team.

"There is always pressure being number one". "It's taken us three and a half years to get to where we are, but I think we're getting to the most important part of what we've been planning towards". That's the challenge and it has its own pressures. "We will let players adjust to the situations".

Chandimal, who missed the Asia Cup and the preceding ODI series against South Africa due to injury and suspension, cautioned that home pitches had "a lot of spin".

"Especially for the batters it's not easy to play..." We have some mystery spinners as well.

"They got all the experience and talent and we have to compete with them".

'When you look at how England struggled during the last World Cup, the same thing is happening to us at the moment, ' said Chandimal.

"In the last few days, we worked really hard on our fielding individually and as a group", he said.
