The England Cricket team have had a busy winter period with mixed results. England's test team got off to a flying start by thrashing Australia 3-1 on their own turf in the Ashes series. The Twenty20 team then one won and lost one against Australia, before England's ODI squad was humilated 6-1.

In February England headed to the 2011 ICC World Cup in India, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka with high hopes of making an impact. Despite being the most entertaining team in the tournament England just made it through the group stages before losing to Sri Lanka in the quarter-finals.

England have a cracking summer to look forward to where they will play Sri Lanka and India in a series of test matches, ODI and Twenty20 games. For more information go to our England Fixtures section.

England put in a strong bowling performance as Sri Lanka fell to a disappointing 81-4 on the first day of the third test. Heavy and frequent rain meant the first ever test match at the Rose Bowl was a very stop-start affair. Jimmy Anderson and co will be looking to put in a repeat (weather permitting) performance tomorrow as England look to take command of their third and final test against Sri Lanka.

Second test ends in a draw

England’s hopes of repeating their exploits in Cardiff were thwarted by a resilient Sri Lanka at Lords. However, the second innings of the test saw a return to form for the troubled Kevin Pietersen who reached a respectable 72. In contrast Andrew Strauss once again failed to get going as he was out for just 4 in the first innings and nothing in the second innings.

England's bowlers thought otherwise as they ruthlessly tore apart the visitors, bowling them all out for 82.
