All big names were present because England had made the most of some downtime by replenishing their brown water and diving into the clear blue water.

I am now a better bowler than before I went to Sri Lanka, & # 39; Stone, who has just signed a new deal in Warwickshire, recently told Sportsmail.

& # 39; You learn a lot from the senior bowlers.

& # 39; My mental game is now better and my skills have been surpassed. It was about training with a goal.

& # 39; Even if you only throw two surpluses in the nets, make them up with how you would bow in a match. The training was about being specific and making the most of your time. & # 39;
