Righty, you can read all about this game in Andrew Miller's bulletin we also have a gallery and Gnasher's Plays of the Day. That's enough from us, thanks for the emails, please join us for the second game at Headingley on Friday.

Anderson named man of the match "I was delighted get my place back in the side," he says. "You've always got a point to prove. It was a long winter and we've had a good break now and feel more refreshed. I pride myself on my fielding and it's nice to hold a good one like today."

Cook: "I thought we handled the rain break and came back very well then the bowlers then got us off to a great start. The way Kieswetter and Pietersen played was also excellent and then we got that good partnership at the end. It's good to have Anderson back but we've got to keep our feet on the ground and keep working hard."

Dilshan: "I'm happy to come back but unfortunately I couldn't get any runs today. It was a tough chase but England bowled well and deserved to win. We didn't get the start we wanted and it was tough from there. As a team we still have a lot of confidence. Sanath has done a great job for Sri Lanka cricket for 22 years, he changed world cricket in 1996." "He'll always have my vote," says Dilshan with a smile.

England win by 110 runs Emphatic victory for England. The conditions suited them but they blew Sri Lanka away. James Anderson's return to ODI cricket was a happy one, ripping the heart out of Sri Lanka's top order and Graeme Swann finished it off. Good start to Cook's full-time reign, England were very sharp in the field. In conditions that were a bit grim Sri Lanka didn't really fancy it. Sanath Jayasuriya's comeback farewell innings didn't quite go as planned but it's difficult when you've been out of top-level cricket for so long.

Swann to Randiv, no run, Randiv slices a cut to point, the required rate just past 20, so England in with a chance

Swann to Malinga, OUT, gone, finally. Malinga this time can't land one of his big leg-side clumps, instead a bit of drift finds a top edge that loops high towards point where Bopara holds the chance
