26.4 ST Finn to HMRKB Herath, 4 runs, three slips and a gully, but it's the gap that counts on this occasion. Another prod, another low edge, out of everyone's reach. Herath is off the mark | May 28, 2016
17.6 CR Woakes to AD Mathews, out, Woakes has a huge wicket on his comeback! Mathews given caught behind, but he's gone for the review (this time, you might say). And, yes, Hot Spot is clearly there on the outside edge. There was also a big noise. This was a good delivery, tight around off stump, Mathews had to play and it just nipped away. | May 28, 2016
Alan Gardner looks back on the afternoon session as Sri Lanka find themselves in all sorts of trouble at Chester-le-Street | May 28, 2016
14.6 JM Anderson to LD Chandimal, out, taken at first slip! No frustration for Anderson this time. More classy bowling from, probing away outside off, Chandimal playing with fairly hard hands again and it carries at knee height to Cook. | May 28, 2016
14.4 JM Anderson to LD Chandimal, 4 runs, edged! And finds the gap. That will improve Anderson's mood. Pressing forward outside off, quite hard hands, and it splits third slip and gully perfectly | May 28, 2016
10.3 JM Anderson to JK Silva, 4 runs, tighter to off stump, plays with a slightly open face and it just runs quietly wide of the second slip to third man rope...Vince can't quite flick it back | May 28, 2016
9.2 SCJ Broad to BKG Mendis, 4 runs, that's textbook, gets a good stride forward into a full delivery and strokes it beautifully through the covers | May 28, 2016
Melinda Farrell asks fans if they would be sad to see Test matches disappear from Chester-le-Street | May 28, 2016
5.5 SCJ Broad to JK Silva, 4 runs, very full, another wide half-volley to be frank, but he had to make the most of it, and that he did, an exquisite drive through the covers, head right over the ball | May 28, 2016
