SEE YOU IN HEADINGLEY!
At times this first Test drifted a little aimlessly but there have been plenty of golden moments along the way and that nerve-jangling finish has certainly whetted the appetite for the second and final Test, at Headingley on Friday. Our coverage begins on Sky Sports 2 at 10.30am. Before then make sure you stay up-to-date with all the latest news, analysis and opinion by visiting skysports.com/cricket and @SkyCricket.

PODCAST - Nasser, Mikey, Bumble and Russel reflect on the first Test
No cloud in the glorious north !! wonder if Jimmy would of won the game for us given 7/8 overs last night? http://pbs.twimg.com/media/BqRq5CoIYAAnEaM.jpg
Despite spending most of the day watching the cricket I'm sitting down for the highlights- today test cricket was the winner @SkyCricket
Highlights from day five of the astonishing test between England and Sri Lanka are on Sky Sports 2 now! You won't want to miss this!
I enjoy the game immensely, I admire the players greatly, but right now , there is so much dawdling about aimlessly .
England would have won that test match with time to spare, if they declared last night & everyone knows it. 390 runs off 90 overs, please !
Can't wait to hear from match ref re overrates . This was high quality dawdling at it's very best . Never seen so much aimless wandering
What a noble effort by England on a unresponsive wicket. We've got our fighting spirit back! @SkyCricket #EngvSLThats why I love cricket! Thats why I love test cricket! What an afternoon! @SkyCricket @ECB_cricket Well played boys!Credit to the England team for sticking in there & giving it their all.Teamwork at its finest, it makes me proud to be English! @SkyCricket
