  • SL buoyant despite Keogh resistance

    Sri Lanka will head into the first Test at Lord's generally fortified in their hopes of scalping England at home for the third series in a row and a little wiser about their starting line-up

  • SL hopeful on Lakmal for Headingley

    Sri Lanka remain hopeful that Suranga Lakmal will be fit for the second Test at Headingley, despite a hamstring injury keeping him out of the current squad

  • Sri Lanka pacemen vie for Test place

    The Sri Lankans continued to do much as they pleased against Northamptonshire.

  • Silva and Thirimanne flay weak Northants

    Wantage Road provided an atmosphere far removed from the tension that surrounded the end of the one-day series as the Sri Lankans slotted into Test preparation ahead of Lord's next week
