Visitors, Sri Lanka will look to win their first full-fledged series in England when they took on the home team at Lord’s. England looked down and out in Australia where they were whitewashed in the Test series. Alastair Cook and company will look to forget that series and start afresh against Sri Lanka. They also have a new look to side what with Kevin Pietersen, Graeme Swann and company missing from the unit. Catch Live Scorecard of the England vs Sri Lanka 1st Test here

Sri Lanka won the just concluded One-Day International (ODI) series, but they will know that playing Tests against England in their own backyard will be a different matter altogether. For Sri Lanka, they need their spinner, Rangana Herath to take wickets, as their pace attack isn’t much to write home about. For them to do well, they need their pacers to bowl within their limitations. Sri Lanka will look up to Kumar Sangakkara and Mahela Jayawardene to shore up the batting line-up. Both have already toured England many times and that should help them. Catch the live blog of the match here
