    England's James Anderson has become the world's number-one ranked Test bowler for the first time.
    Anderson replaces team-mate Stuart Broad at the top of the ICC's rankings after taking eight wickets in England's second Test win over Sri Lanka. Lancashire seamer Anderson, 33, took 10 in the first Test and now has 451 as England's all-time leading Test wicket-taker. Broad has slipped to third place, behind India spinner R Ashwin.

    Sri Lanka seamer Shaminda Eranga was reported for a suspect bowling action in the second-Test defeat by England at Chester-le-Street.
    The International Cricket Council said the 29-year-old is "required to undergo testing within 14 days".

    I spent a pleasant day at Lord's yesterday, and would say the cricket was "interesting" rather than enthralling

    I was bemused by Sri Lanka's negative tactics early in the morning and they let Jonny Bairstow and Chris Woakes get going without putting them under any pressure. Bairstow was different class, but unfortunately the tail could not stay with him as a double hundred beckoned - very poor shot by Finn (why is he playing a slog sweep when his job is to stay with Bairstow??)

    The Sri Lankan batting fought back on a VERY flat pitch - Dimuth Karunaratne looked very impressive before his demise on 50. SIlva looked more likely to go early on, but he got through it, and could well get a hundred on Day 3

    Woakes was the pick of the bowlers for me.

    Alastair Cook was hit on the knee by a lusty drive from Kusal Perera and went to hospital for a scan, meaning that - for the first time since 2006 - England opened the batting in a home Test without the Essex man.
    However, the scan revealed nothing more sinister than bruising and Cook is expected to bat in the morning.

    James Anderson has been reprimanded by the ICC for showing disrespect to umpire S Ravi on the third day of the Lord's Test against Sri Lanka.
    Anderson was found to have breached Level 1 Article 2.1.1 of the ICC Code of Conduct which relates to "conduct that is contrary to the spirit of the game." Anderson admitted the charged and accepted the sanction from the match referee Andy Pycroft so there was no need for a hearing.
    The incident occurred during Sri Lanka's seventh-wicket stand between Kusal Perera and Rangana Herath when Ravi told Anderson, who was becoming frustrated, not to sledge Herath.

    Tymal Mills, the Sussex left-arm fast bowler, and Middlesex batsman Dawid Malan have been named in England's T20 squad to face Sri Lanka next month. Jonny Bairstow has been included for both the ODIs and T20 but there was no place for Stuart Broad.
    Alex Hales, Joe Root and Moeen Ali were rested for the T20, which takes place at the Ageas Bowl on July 5. There was no place in either squad for Jake Ball, who was part of the Test squad through the series against Sri Lanka.

    Sri Lanka seamer Shaminda Eranga has been admitted to hospital in Dublin to undergo tests on an elevated heartbeat. He is understood to be in a stable condition but will remain in Ireland until Monday while the rest of the team returns to the UK.
    Eranga experienced discomfort during Sri Lanka's 136-run win over Ireland at Malahide on Saturday. He came out to bat and faced the final ball of the innings but did not bowl and instead went to hospital.
