England all-rounder Moeen Ali will not be available for the first Test against Sri Lanka, head coach Chris Silverwood has confirmed.

Moeen, 33, tested positive for Covid-19 upon the squad's arrival in Sri Lanka on 4 January and remains in isolation.

Chris Woakes is out of isolation after being deemed a possible close contact but Silverwood said it will be "tight" for him to be ready for the first Test.

Spinner Dom Bess took 5-30 as a woeful Sri Lanka batting display left England in control after the opening day of the first Test in Galle.

The hosts were bowled out for 135 in only 46.1 overs despite winning the toss on a pitch that offered only a little spin.

England closed on 127-2, with Joe Root unbeaten on 66, Jonny Bairstow 47 not out and their third-wicket stand worth 110.

That first day was decisive in the end with England winning by 7 wickets.

Meanwhile, there has been a top quality test series in Australia with India being bowled out for 36 in the first test which they lost but coming back to win the series 2-1. They chased down 328 to win the decisive fourth test with 3 wickets and 3 overs to spare. That was test cricket at its best and I hope any plans to reduce test matches to 4 days will be binned.

Stick to the traditional 5 days with a Test, there's no need to change it.

Pakistan's Fawad Alam hit his third Test century as Pakistan established an 88-run lead on the second day of the first Test against South Africa.


Fawad, who returned to Pakistan's squad in 2019 after more than a decade-long absence, reached 109 off 245 balls as the hosts made 308 in Karachi.

Pakistan had lost four late wickets for 33 runs on an enthralling opening day.

But Azhar Ali and Faheem Ashraf both made 50s as Pakistan recovered to surpass South Africa's opening day 220.

Chris Gayle has equalled the record for the fastest half century, scoring 50 off 12 balls in the Abu Dhabi T10 tournament being shown on Sky Sports. He finished with 84 not out off 22 balls which included 6 fours and 9 sixes (his team were set a target of 98 to win the match).

He shares the record with Yuvraj Singh of India who scored his 12 ball 50 against England in 2007.

England batsman Zak Crawley has been ruled out of the first two Tests against India after spraining a wrist in a "freak" accident.

The 23-year-old slipped on a marble floor outside the changing room during Tuesday's practice session.

Crawley, who opened in England's 2-0 Test series win in Sri Lanka in January, was set to bat at three to accommodate the returning Rory Burns.

Mixed fortunes for the Sri Lanka bowler Akila Dananjaya last night in a T20 match against West Indies. He took a hat-trick in the fourth over of the West Indies innings, taking the wickets of Evin Lewis, Chris Gayle and Nicholas Pooran. In his next over, Kieron Pollard hit him for six sixes! Pollard becomes the third batsman to hit six sixes in an over in international cricket, the other two being Herschelle Gibbs and Yuvraj Singh.

England will play India in a one-off Test this year, says the Board of Control for Cricket in India.

India have not played a Test since they beat South Africa by an innings and 34 runs in November 2014.

England play a Test every two years as part of the multi-format Women's Ashes series against Australia, but have not faced India since 2014.

Jofra Archer will miss England's one-day series against India and the start of next month's Indian Premier League because of his ongoing elbow problem.

The fast bowler will return home for further investigation of the issue, which the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) says "deteriorated" during the five-match T20 series.

Lancashire spinner Matt Parkinson is in the squad having been a T20 reserve.

The two sides meet in the first of a three-match series in Pune on Tuesday.

England captain Eoin Morgan has been ruled out of his side's final two one-day internationals in India with a hand injury.

Morgan split the webbing between his thumb and index finger during England's defeat in the first ODI on Tuesday.

Batsman Sam Billings is also out of Friday's second match with the collar bone injury he suffered on Tuesday but could be fit for Sunday's finale.

Lancashire's Liam Livingstone will make his ODI debut on Friday in Pune.

That was a good comeback by England towards the end but they couldn't quite finish it off. Well played Sam Curran scoring 95 not out batting at number 8.

Ireland women will play their first match since September 2019 when they play Scotland in a four-game T20 series at Stormont in late May.

Ireland women endured a run of series and tour cancellations in 2020 because of Covid-19 - which included scheduled games against the Scots.

The Belfast games will take place on 23, 24, 26 and 27 May.

England fast bowler Jofra Archer is an injury concern for the two Tests against New Zealand next month after a recurrence of his elbow problem.

Archer was unable to bowl on Saturday during Sussex's County Championship match with Kent and will not bowl on the final day on Sunday.

The 26-year-old pulled out of the now postponed Indian Premier League to focus on his recovery.

He also had surgery on a hand injury sustained while cleaning a fish tank.

The first Test against New Zealand at Lord's starts on 2 June.

England fast bowler Jofra Archer will have surgery on his troublesome right elbow on Friday.

The 26-year-old had an injection for the long-standing problem in March and has played only two matches since then.

He managed just five overs in the second innings of Sussex's draw with Kent last week.

A timeframe on his recovery is yet to be given in a year that includes the Twenty20 World Cup and an Ashes series in Australia.

Yes, they certainly need to get Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler back into that middle order. New Zealand were resting a few players as well as they have their World Test Championship final against India starting on Friday.

Azeem Rafiq's employment tribunal case against his former club Yorkshire is to begin on Wednesday, though the first part will be held in "private".

Former spinner Rafiq, 30, filed a legal claim against the club after making allegations he suffered racist abuse.

Yorkshire opened an independent investigation into those allegations in September, which is ongoing.

The hearing, which is listed to begin at 10:00 BST in Leeds, is expected to last for two days.
