Will Fraine is expecting big things from Joe Root’s England side ahead of what promises to be a memorable year of Test Match cricket.

England begin a busy schedule with a two-Test series in Sri Lanka on Thursday (4.30am UK) before home and away series against powerhouses India, a home series against Pakistan, a possible World Test Championship final and an away Ashes series at the end of the year.

Root and co have it all to do to reach the World Test Championship final, due to take place at Lord’s in June.

England are currently fourth in the table behind leaders Australia, India and newly crowned world number one side New Zealand.

It would take a seriously impressive run of form for England to qualify for the final as things stand, maybe even replicating what Kane Williamson’s Kiwis have just done to become the ICC’s top ranked side – win six Tests in a row.

But Yorkshire batsman Fraine would not be surprised to see them get on a roll, starting in Galle.
