Sri Lanka wicket-keeper Kumar Sangakkara claims his side’s poor showing in the one-day series with England will have no bearing on the outcome of the Test series.

Hmmm... not so sure about that one.
Sri Lanka is actually a very humid place. Lot's of moisture in the air generally means plenty of swing. It also means lots of sweat, which can be applied to the ball to aid 'reverse swing'.

However, I agree that England's (well known) susceptibility to spin will be their biggest problem. SL do have some very good tweakers. In particular: Murali', Jayasurai, & Chandana.
