9,10,11,12,13 June 2016 (5-day match)
  England 1st innings R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal AN Cook* lbw b Pradeep 85 235 173 9 0 49.13
56.2 86.6 mph, gottim, plumb in front! Pradeep's apparently futile attempts to drag Cook across his stumps and slip one past the inside edge suddenly morph into a brilliant strength-into-weakness gambit and there's no chance a review would save England's captain here. That was missing off, missing leg and taking middle out for dinner and drinks 164/5
View dismissal AD Hales c Mathews b Herath 18 85 52 3 0 34.61
19.4 46.1 mph, big swing, nicks the edge - and taken at slip! Hales falls to spin for the fourth time in the series, just a little turn and bounce as he tried to cart the ball down the ground, looped gently off the top edge and straight to close catcher. That's what happens when you forget it's a five-day game and start trying to tonk it before lunch (and to the second ball you've faced from the spinner) 56/1
View dismissal NRD Compton c †Chandimal b Lakmal 1 19 11 0 0 9.09
24.3 84.8 mph, pitched up and edged on the drive! Compton uses up another life, gone for 1, his Test career surely hanging by a thread. There was just a hint of lateral movement for Lakmal, the ball going away down the hill and Compton wasn't far enough forward, reaching away from his body and a feather of a nick was snapped up by Chandimal 67/2
View dismissal JE Root lbw b Lakmal 3 8 9 0 0 33.33
26.1 86.4 mph, full and veering late, hitting the pads... computer Tucker says no but Mathews decides to review, this could well be close. Root was falling over to the off side, off balance as he swished to leg, it was very, very full... and computer Hawk-Eye says it was hurtling into leg stump! A spot-on review from Mathews and England are three down before lunch, their shirt front increasingly ruffled 71/3
View dismissal JM Vince b Pradeep 10 23 17 1 0 58.82
31.3 84.1 mph, crumbs, he's been bowled! The bowler is appealing, the batsman is baffled, neither has really twigged that Vince's off bail has been filched! That was the archetypal bail-trimmer, a perfect lifter on off stump, Vince played inside the line, was beaten as the ball angled in and he has to walk! 84/4
JM Bairstow not out 167 405 251 18 0 66.53
View dismissal MM Ali c Mathews b Herath 25 76 60 3 0 41.66
73.5 goes straight on, that's come off the edge, and snapped up at slip! Moeen wants to be certain that it's carried, the umpires' soft signal is out - and replays confirm Mathews grabbed it well above the turf, that's more out than a Micky Flanagan sketch ("out out")! Lovely bowling, one spun past the inside of the bat and then two balls later Herath clips the outside edge and Moeen is on his way 227/6
View dismissal CR Woakes c & b Herath 66 165 142 8 0 46.47
113.3 51.6 mph, dances forward, drives in the air... straight back to the bowler! Herath has jimmied the lock again, though it very nearly slipped from his grasp! The tactic of lobbing it into the rough has paid off, think the ball went on instead of turning in, came off the inner part of Woakes' bat and looped up gently for the caught-and-bowled 371/7
View dismissal SCJ Broad c Mendis b Lakmal 14 37 32 1 0 43.75
122.2 86.8 mph, wide, walloped ... straight to gully! Broad stayed too leg-side of the ball and failed to control his slash through the cordon. There were lots of gaps on offer but not at gully, where Mendis swallows the offering in his bread-basket 396/8
View dismissal ST Finn c Lakmal b Herath 7 24 22 1 0 31.81
127.5 48.1 mph, swept, top-edged, and gone! A sprawling chance to deep backward square ... Finn's patience was exhausted by a probing over, and his release shot plopped into the hands of Lakmal in front of the Mound Stand 411/9
View dismissal JM Anderson c †Chandimal b Eranga 4 6 3 1 0 133.33
128.4 80.5 mph, short, Anderson leaps up in self-defence, feathers a nick, and that is the end of that! 416/10

  Sri Lanka 1st innings R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal FDM Karunaratne c †Bairstow b Finn 50 135 101 7 0 49.50
30.6 77.7 mph, on the hips, and Finn makes the breakthrough with the strangle! He has the knack, even when he's not on song, Karunaratne got too far across his leg-side flick and just feathered into Bairstow's gloves. I think that's 17 for Bairstow in the series now, only two shy of the three-Test record. And yet, it's the drop we'll be talking about. C'est la vie... 108/1
View dismissal JK Silva c †Bairstow b Broad 79 232 152 10 0 51.97
53.1 87.2 mph, gottim! That was coming after a superb tight start to this spell. Broad goes just a nibble closer to the off stump, Silva hangs his bat out, and there's the thinnest of clicks of willow through to Bairstow. The end of a fine and fighting innings, but he never got started this morning 166/3
View dismissal BKG Mendis lbw b Woakes 25 83 55 3 0 45.45
50.1 84.0 mph, massive appeal and given straightaway! A tight line, angling into the pads, and though there might have been a thought of a review, Mendis thinks better of it! That would have smashed middle and leg nibbled most of leg stump according to HawkEye, and it's due reward for a luckless first day. Who needs the fielders anyway? 162/2
View dismissal HDRL Thirimanne c Root b Finn 17 108 58 3 0 29.31
72.6 82.3 mph, now there's an even bigger cheer, as Thiri steers to slip! Oh dear, oh dear... That's bobbins from Sri Lanka's last senior Test batsman, a few minutes before lunch he reaches for a push drive, thick edge and Root snaffles it. Finn has another, the spring quickly returning to his step 205/6
View dismissal AD Mathews* c Root b Woakes 3 18 14 0 0 21.42
56.3 86.0 mph, superb bowling. Extra bounce from just back of a length, Mathews has no time to respond, anchored on the back foot, and a spliced edge loops tantalisingly to Root at second slip! That's a shattering blow for Sri Lanka 169/4
View dismissal LD Chandimal lbw b Finn 19 65 48 3 0 39.58
70.1 84.8 mph, full and straight, that's hitting all three! Although Chandimal thinks otherwise and decides to review... I'll not make any rash promises but I'd be surprised if that's missing. Well, well, it's much closer than I thought, pinned him right in front but only just clipping leg, according to Hawk-Eye. That's enough to support Ravi's on-field call, however, and Chandimal is a goner all the same 202/5
View dismissal MDKJ Perera c †Bairstow b Anderson 42 107 73 7 0 57.53
92.4 82.2 mph, another short ball, Kusal gives it the charging-cross-batted-swipe - and nicks behind! Bairstow avoids drama in holding on to give Anderson his first wicket and end a spirited knock from young Master Perera. Seemed a bit shaken up by that blow to the hand, obviously didn't trust Eranga to hang around for long, and fell on his sword 288/8
View dismissal HMRKB Herath b Broad 31 75 49 5 0 63.26
89.2 82.5 mph, bowled 'im, Herath chops on! Broad ends the fun, nothing special about the delivery but Herath, his dander up, was probably trying to cut a ball that was there for it, tad too close and he got a thick bottom edge into off stump 276/7
View dismissal RMS Eranga c Vince b Woakes 1 34 13 0 0 7.69
95.1 81.0 mph, and he does so, first ball again, steered to slip and that is that, SL dismissed for 288 and conceding a 128-run lead 288/10
View dismissal RAS Lakmal c Root b Anderson 0 10 5 0 0 0.00
94.3 81.0 mph, edged this time, and taken this time... at least, Root is confident it was clean. The on-field umpires send it upstairs to be certain but replays quickly confirm that Root had got both mitts around the ball as he went low to his right. Anderson has another (cheap tail-end) wicket and SL are nine down 288/9

12.2 82.3 mph, edged, and gone! Oh Compo! He was looking the part, but finally one was just too close to that edge, and back he goes, a feather through to the keeper. It's a lonely trudge back to the pavilion and up to the dressing room. He surely knows that is the end of that. He had his moments, particularly in 2013, but I fear he's been found out 45/1
View dismissal AD Hales lbw b Mathews 94 282 179 10 1 52.51
63.2 74.6 mph, no! Hales is pinned on the front pad, and though he's reviewing it doesn't look good ... a fraction back of a length and zipping through quickly, he was simply late on the shot... sliding down, maybe, a few have so far this Test ... it's his only hope... but nope, clipping leg, and off he goes. 202/6
View dismissal JE Root b Pradeep 4 7 5 1 0 80.00
13.4 80.9 mph, bowled him! Keeps low and out goes the off peg! Root shakes his head ruefully but there's not a lot he could have done about that. Not a full-blown shooter, a la Jack Russell in Barbados 1989-90, but shin height. Still, on the plus side, he'll be able to tell Bayliss to leave him be at 4! 50/2
View dismissal JM Vince b Pradeep 0 2 1 0 0 0.00
13.5 80.9 mph, wow! On your bike son! This one nips off the seam, down the hill, Vince plays no stroke, and out goes his off pole as well! Immaculate line from Pradeep, but having seen Root's demise, Vince might have been better advised putting any old bat on ball, really ... 50/3
View dismissal JM Bairstow b Pradeep 32 89 72 1 0 44.44
35.1 82.3 mph, bowled him, Pradeep does it again! Just as England's fourth-wicket pair seemed to be cruising for the close, Bairstow swishes across the line without much footwork and Pradeep hits the top of middle... Maybe an inside edge, coming down the slope, YJB is KIA 101/4
View dismissal ST Finn lbw b Eranga 7 36 28 1 0 25.00
42.2 81.8 mph, this time he's gone! Finn was a walking lbw today, this is a full delivery which slams into his front pad as he again shuffles right in front and S Ravi raises the finger. They check for the no-ball, it's very tight but just okay 120/5
