SOMERSET'S Jack Leach has retained his place in the England side for the second Test with Sri Lanka, as the tourists name an unchanged line-up.

Spin bowler Leach took match figures of 5-101 in the first Test in Galle, which England won by 211 runs.

That has proved enough for him to keep his place for the second Test, to be played in Kandy, starting tomorrow morning (from 4.30am UK time).

The England selectors have resisted the urge to recall Jonny Bairstow after injury, as Ben Stokes is expected to move up the order to bat at No. 3, with Moeen Ali dropping to No. 6.

England team for second Sri Lanka Test: Rory Burns, Keaton Jennings, Ben Stokes, Joe Root (c), Jos Buttler, Moeen Ali, Ben Foakes, Sam Curran, Adil Rashid, Jack Leach, James Anderson.
