Eoin Morgan will come back as ODI captain while Jos Buttler, Adil Rahsid, Liam Plunkett, David Willey and Jason Roy will be an integral part in this series.

They will be without the services of James Anderson and Stuart Broad but the Lankans will be aware that England still have a lot of players to cause damage in their strategies.
