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.
