Stuart Broad enjoyed his first bowl in Sri Lankan conditions as England completed their first training sessions in Hambantota

 The England players blew off the cobwebs and enjoyed some time in the nets as their preparations began ahead of the two-Test series starting on Thursday 14 January.

Their route to training was anything but straightforward however, as they came across a herd of cows on the road on their way to the ground.

All that, and more, in the video above.
