Joe Denly has joined England’s one-day tour of Sri Lanka and will compete with Sam Curran for a place in the XI on Saturday, as the management consider “We were both batters back then. We used to roll our arms over in the nets – I thought I was better than Mo, he thought he was better than me .

"I haven't spent much time outside the hotel room these last few weeks. It's been a challenge. But it has to be done. You have to put in the hours."

Denly is targeting a first Test ton against New Zealand having fallen six runs short in the final Ashes Test against Australia at The Oval in September.

"It was disappointing not to get three figures, but I was dropped on nought and I could have had an lbw shout against me as well," said Denly, who played in all five Ashes Tests this summer.

"Playing in the Ashes, being exposed to those bowlers, I've come out of it a more confident player, and I certainly feel a lot more comfortable within this batting line-up now.

"It would be nice to get that first Test hundred on this trip. I'm feeling pretty good out in the middle."

Watch day one of the first Test between New Zealand and England, at Bay Oval in Tauranga, live on Sky Sports Cricket (channel 404) and Sky Sports Main Event (channel 401) from 9pm on Wednesday.
