England fast bowler James Anderson suffered an ankle injury on Monday and could be doubtful for the first test against Sri Lanka at the weekend.
Anderson did not bowl in the second innings against a Sri Lanka Board President's XI and joined fellow paceman Steve Harmison on the treatment table.
Harmison suffered a back spasm on Sunday and did not bowl on Monday.
Matthew Hoggard claimed 5 for 25 to leave the President's XI reeling on 77 for 8 in their second innings.
England had earlier collapsed to 134 all out in their first innings, conceding a 164-run first innings deficit.
Ravi Bopara top scored for England with 47.
The first test starts in Kandy on Saturday.
