Download the latest Sky Cricket Podcast to hear from Sky Sports experts Sir Ian Botham and Mahela Jayawardena, plus England captain Alastair Cook following the drawn third Test at Lord's.

Botham looks at the differing fortunes of Alex Hales and Nick Compton after the former compiled three half-centuries against Sri Lanka but the latter notched just 51 runs, leaving him in danger of being dropped for the series against Pakistan later this summer.

Jayawardena reflects on a tough series for the tourists, who were beaten by an innings and 88 runs at Headingley and nine wickets at Durham, while he also looks ahead to the impending five-match ODI series between the sides, which starts at Trent Bridge on June 21.

Cook, meanwhile, discusses how the wet weather in London robbed fans and players of an exciting day's cricket, as well as a job well done by his side across the three matches.
