SL v England - first test.

A number of questions hang over tomorrows game, namely will England go with their usual 6 batsmen and 4 bowlers or, as Strauss has hinted go with 5 bowlers. Also if they go with 5 bowlers will Bell play.
That leaves the most important question, can England put the misery of the UAE behind them and win.

I believe if they go with 5 bowlers it's likely that Bell will lose out and Bopara will bat at 5. With Broad being now declared fit and they decide on pace then Bresnan will get the nod ahead of Finn. The 3 spinner option will mean a first cap for Patel.

On the question of can they win, I have no idea.

I wonder how long Broad can keep this up with his ankle problem.
