Sri Lanka Vs England 2nd Test Match 3 Apr Live

Mahela JayawardeneYet another test series in Asia that was preceded by hope and anticipation of an impressive English show is heading towards a horror finish for the world's top-ranked test side. After being beaten in the first test match against Sri Lanka, they now risk losing their coveted test ranking when the second test gets underway in Colombo from Tuesday.

A draw or a defeat will mean that England start the new ICC rankings year with a demotion on the test teams table. While they were able to just survive at the top to pocket the prize money on the 1st April cut-off date, the situation looks rather bleak for them now. A 75-run defeat in which their batting line-up crumbled twice to persistent spin bowling from Rangana Herath shows how they have not really learnt from the debacle they suffered against Pakistan a couple of months ago. While Jonathan Trott scored a valiant century, it was always going to be an uphill task chasing a daunting target. To make matters worse, they have lost the services of Stuart Broad who was declared fit to play in the first match.

For Sri Lanka, it was delight in front of their home crowd after a long time. Since Muttiah Muralitharan's retirement from test cricket, this was Sri Lanka's only second test match victory, and first at home. After landing in trouble early, the old workhorse Mahela Jayawardene scored a massive 180 to propel his team to a decent total. With a fighting score, it was left to Herath whose first ten-wicket haul ensured that England's fragilities against slow bowling were exploited. For the second match, pacer Chanaka Welegedara has been ruled out with injury, with Shaminda Eranga taking his place. Also included in the squad is Angelo Mathews who will play as a specialist batsman.

The match will be played in Colombo where Sri Lanka made their entry into test cricket, facing England, 30 years ago.
