Colombo, Nov 27 : After England's emphatic 3-0 sweep of Sri Lanka, their captain Joe Root stated they were no longer a side that succeeds only at home, and had proven they can adapt to foreign conditions.

England defeated Sri Lanka by 42 runs here on Monday – it was their first series victory in Sri Lanka since 2002, and their only three-Test sweep in Asia. "It's about being adaptable and we've shown we can do that," Root said after the game.

"We've shown we are not a one-trick pony any more. And that should fill us with a huge amount of confidence going into future tours. (UNI)
