As Royal London launch their sponsorship of one-day cricket in England, Stuart Broad and Ben Stokes look ahead to a busy summer with matches against Sri Lanka and India on the horizon.

Broad talks about working with new head coach Peter Moores and how that will be different - or not - from working with Ashley Giles.

Still struggling with a knee injury, he explains why the decision has been taken for him to rest in the eraly part of the year to ensure he is fully fit for the challenges to come.

Those challenges include series against Sri Lanka and India this summer, and Broad, England's Twenty20 International captain, outlines what he expects from two world-class sides.

Stokes is currently recovering from a wrist injury and starts by talking about when he might be back in action.

He then goes on to talk about what sort of challenges he is expecting from the Sri Lankans, who were recently crowned ICC World Twenty20 champions in Bangladesh.

The Durham all-rounder also reveals that he would like to be given an opportunity to bat higher up the order in the future.

Royal London's four-year deal will see them take on title sponsorship of one-day cricket at international, domestic and recreational level.
