England win first Test against Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka vs England 1st Test Live Cricket Streaming Ben Foakes nearing debut hundred

Jennings had probably earned a slice of luck and it came when Sri Lanka declined to refer Dhananjaya de Silva's sound lbw appeal just before the break.

Watch the second Test between Sri Lanka and England live on Sky Sports Cricket from 4am on Wednesday. Angelo Matthews was once again the top scorer with a half-century.

He didn't field during England's second innings on Thursday, and batted in pain for scores of 33 and 1.

England's spin trio of Moeen Ali, Adil Rashid and Jack Leach was brilliant in the game.

Moeen Ali avoided a pair but did not linger, desperately hacking Dilruwan Perera to mid-on for three attempting to up the ante. Sri Lanka replied with 203 and 250. This is the first win for England in Galle. The match also marks the final Test match for Sri Lankan left-arm off spinner Rangana Herath. I might go to my club and may play some first-class cricket. "And to be as consistent as that throughout a whole Test match, which is something we haven't always got right in the past, especially away from home, has been really pleasing". I have been here a few times before and that helped in countering the spinners. "It's hard work", Foakes said.

Sri Lanka´s best hope though is the weather, with rain playing havoc with the series so far and thunderstorms forecast for Galle on Friday and on Saturday - should the hosts survive day four.

"Getting a debut hundred is phenomenal but in this innings in particular, to walk out at 103 for five and play in foreign conditions, with all the challenges that come with that, is just a huge, huge effort", said Prior, a member of the talkSPORT radio commentary team covering the series in Sri Lanka.

Both Marcus Trescothick and Rob Key would recall Jonny Bairstow for the second Test - pitch depending! There were times when the seamers might not get the praise they deserve, but they built a lot of pressure. We have done our homework. "It's been a fantastic start to things". I am glad he is not there for the next match, having gotten out twice to him (smiles).

Earlier, a disciplined piece of bowling from Sri Lanka saw them pick up three wickets for 73 runs in the opening session. Ben and Jos batted really well in the first innings.

We need to regroup and looking forward to the next game.

Led by Heather Knight, England, who are at No.3 on the MRF Tyres ICC Women's T20I Rankings, boast of a formidable batting line-up that has super big-hitters in Danielle Wyatt, Tammy Beaumont, and all-rounder Natalie Sciver. "It's a very emotional day. We had a really good start in the first session but we couldn't capitalise on it". We will have to say sorry to him. I have a groin strain and I still don't know who long it takes to heal. "He is a tremendous man and a great human being". We have a small gift to him on behalf of the team.
