Opener Dimuth Karunaratne has said that the bowling Sri Lanka faced in practice games ahead of the Test series was of modest quality.

Karunaratne made scores of 8, 16 not out, 0 and 100 not out in three-day first-class matches against Essex and Leicestershire.

However, he felt those outings had been inadequate preparation for the challenge of facing England's attack.

He said he does not think the century in the warm-up game was satisfying, and that he doesn't think that kind of preparation will do any good ahead of a tough Test series.
