Strauss considering five bowlers

England captain Andrew Strauss says England will consider playing five bowlers in the first Test against Sri Lanka, which begins on Monday in Galle.

Strauss says the heat means bowlers will not be able to bowl for six- or seven-over spells, so there is "more of a case" for a fifth bowler for this Test.

The skipper wants his side to "make amends" for their recent Test series defeat by Pakistan in Dubai.
