This is the sort of situation Buttler is in the team for, he's fantastic at finding ways to score under pressure.

Great 50 for him. The most important thing about it is that it shows he's learning on this tour.

Buttler has done brilliantly as well. Not sure Id want him missing 3 Tests of the India series.

Some very relieved commentators and production staff, who now don't have to be at work by 4am tomorrow to watch England score three or so runs to win the game.

Sibley and Buttler saw it home nicely, a good result.

Good result. Nice to see the spinners do a bit of damage second innings. Can they do it in India?

Excellent win and a good series win as well.  The negativity in the media astounds me sometimes though.  After spending the last few days telling everyone how hard it is going to be to win, now that they have the lines of Vaughan and Tufnel saying on the BBC that Sri Lanka are really poor and there is going to have to be massive improvement in India

Both might be the case, but is it really needed after the series has just been wrapped up.

Two Tests against New Zealand added to the summer schedule

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/cricket/55796557

This means England will play four different countries at home

Plus there's still the possibility of a Test against Ireland

As they were saying in the sky commentary that's 5 away test in a row now, it's bene over a century since England last did that, I'm not sure there's any need for negativity around the team right now.
