Chester-le-Street: England named an unchanged 12-man squad for the third and final Test on Monday shortly after completing a series-clinching win at the Riverside. Victory by nine wickets in the second Test, a win completed with more than a day to spare, saw England go 2-0 up in the series. England will head to Lord’s, where the third Test starts on June 9, with captain Alastair Cook having become the youngest player — and first Englishman — to score 10,000 Test runs after he achieved the feat during the course of his 47 not out on Monday. Jake Ball, in the squad for the first two Tests, will be pressing for a debut, with fast bowler Steven Finn the most likely candidate to make way if the Nottinghamshire quick plays at Lord’s. FULL CRICKET SCORECARD: England vs Sri Lanka, 2nd Test at Chester-le-street

England sealed the series after a win over Sri Lanka on 4th Day of 2nd Test at Durham by 9 wickets. Alastair Cook made sure there is no drama in the fourth innings and the hosts win the match quite comfortably. He completed his 48th half century and before that 10,000 Test runs. Sri Lanka had a nightmare of a first innings as only one batsman was able to score above 30 runs, Kusal Mendis. They were 8 wickets down on 2nd Day and bundled out for 101 within a span of 21 balls. James Anderson took his 450th wicket in Test when he picked up the wicket of Herath. While Herath himself picked up his 300th Test wicket.

England squad for third Test: Alastair Cook (Essex, capt), Alex Hales (Nottinghamshire), Nick Compton (Middlesex), Joe Root (Yorkshire), James Vince (Hampshire), Jonny Bairstow (Yorkshire, wkt), Moeen Ali (Worcestershire), Chris Woakes (Warwickshire), Stuart Broad (Nottinghamshire), Steven Finn (Middlesex), James Anderson (Lancashire), Jake Ball (Nottinghamshire)
