Another loss against Sri Lanka will see England lose No.1 status
London: England’s Test team is under tremendous pressure, as a win in Colombo at the venue of the first Test match played against Sri Lanka, will secure a share of the series, and help them retain No.1 status.
A fifth loss in a row will see England slip to third position and bring Andrew Strauss’ captaincy under scrutiny, even more so if he fails to score with bat.
Jonathan Trott was the latest member of Team England to offer his full support for the skipper.
Trott was still able to answer the question whether a series of wins eased the pressure on the team and a series of defeats, like they are in, builds it, The Daily Mirror reports.
“Absolutely. It makes a story for you guys, but that is a fair call. The pressure builds, for sure. Every Test match for England there is pressure – everyone feels self-pride at being part of a successful team,” he said.
“In the changing room there is a highly-motivated bunch of guys who don’t like losing. So winning is a bit of a habit and it would be nice to get back into that habit.”
