CRICKET : Sri Lanka beat England in first Test in Galle

Sri Lanka 318 and 214 beat England 193 and 264 by 75 runs

England collapsed to a 75-run defeat in the first Test against Sri Lanka in Galle after losing their final 6 wickets for just 31 runs.

Chasing a potential record 4th innings total of 340, England seemed well set as Jonathan Trott (112) and Matt Prior took the tourists to 233-4, but Prior's dismissal for 41 sparked the latest collapse for England in what has been a miserable winter.

England, who are still ranked as the world's top Test Cricket side, have now lost four successive test matches, following on from a 0-3 series defeat by Pakistan.

You can follow the post mortem on the BBC cricket website pages where there will be the usual wailing and gnashing of teeth.
