  England 1st innings R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal AJ Strauss* lbw b Welegedara 4 14 12 1 0 33.33
2.6 83.2 mph, Welegedara has struck, he's removed the England captain, a short of length ball that nipped in, Strauss was coming across the stumps and looking to whip the ball to the leg side, he misses and is struck just above the knee roll, pitching outside off and hit him in front of middle, replays show that was going on to hit the top of middle and leg, Strauss ponders asking for the referral, but then decides against it, and Sri Lanka have made an early breakthrough 5/1
View dismissal AN Cook c Maharoof b Fernando 96 281 164 15 0 58.53
61.2 84.8 mph, and there's the wicket, the inevitable Cook century is not to be, it was a shortish ball, Cook went for an adventurous pull, top-edges it towards mid-on where Maharoof takes the catch, he is a dejected man, at least no one can argue that he was playing for the milestone 201/5
View dismissal IJL Trott lbw b Lakmal 2 13 9 0 0 22.22
5.4 85.9 mph, is it an early end for the run-machine? we have a referral, yup, Trott's gone, that was pitching just short of a length around off stump, no great movement, Trott looks to clip it to the leg side, he misses and is struck just below the knee roll in front of middle, replays show it was going on to hit leg, Dilshan will be delighted after all the questioning over the decision to bowl 18/2
View dismissal KP Pietersen c Dilshan b Lakmal 2 10 8 0 0 25.00
7.5 86.3 mph, England are three down, Pietersen is gone to an athletic catch from Dilshan at gully, length ball outside off, moves away a touch and Pietersen was reaching for that one, gets the outside edge which flies towards Dilshan, who flings himself to his right to pouch that 22/3
View dismissal IR Bell c Paranavitana b Welegedara 52 148 106 8 0 49.05
39.5 82.6 mph, edged! Straight to Paranavitana at first slip. Finally the edge carries off Bell's bat. Once again, Welegedara got the ball to leave the batsman off the pitch, and the line was such that he had to play at this one. Good bowling, and Bell's stay is cut short at 52. That'll lift Sri Lanka 130/4
View dismissal EJG Morgan lbw b Lakmal 79 167 128 10 2 61.71
81.1 82.8 mph, appeal first ball! Morgan is struck on the pad, Lakmal is convinced, but the umpire says no ... hang on, they're going to review this. That's taking leg stump out of the ground, and Morgan is out! It pitched in line, moved enough to beat the bat but not enough to take it down the leg side. 302/6
View dismissal MJ Prior b Herath 126 195 131 19 0 96.18
104.3 finally, Sri Lanka have removed Prior. He swipes across the line at a straight one from Herath, a real slog sweep, but misses it completely and the ball clatters into off stump. Prior exits to standing applause, he's done really well to guide England past 450 452/9
View dismissal SCJ Broad lbw b Welegedara 54 73 51 9 0 105.88
96.1 79.9 mph, gone! Finally a breakthrough. Broad plays across a straight ball and that's stone dead. Much like Strauss yesterday he fell across the shot slightly. He asked Prior about using a review but was told how out it was. 410/7
View dismissal GP Swann c Paranavitana b Welegedara 4 3 5 1 0 80.00
96.6 79.0 mph, gone! Sri Lanka take a catch at slip although the keeper almost messed it up. Well bowled by Welegedara from round the wicket, Swann pushed hard outside off and Paranavitana held on despite the keeper diving in front of him. 414/8
CT Tremlett not out 24 68 41 3 0 58.53
View dismissal ST Finn b Herath 19 29 32 4 0 59.37
112.5 and that's that! Finn was having a go before lunch, and though he played some good shots it was only a matter of time before this happened. He swings, head high, right across the line and is clean bowled. Herath has his second, and England are all out for 486 486/10

View dismissal NT Paranavitana c Strauss b Finn 65 234 184 10 0 35.32
53.5 86.7 mph, the stand is broken! Paranavitana's patience and concentration is finally broken as he flashes a flat-batted drive at a full, wide ball and edges straight to Strauss at first slip. He's given it away and he knows it, walking off with head bowed. Still, take nothing away from his contribution to an opening partnership that has brought Sri Lanka right back into this game 207/1
View dismissal TM Dilshan* b Finn 193 433 253 20 2 76.28
98.2 85.8 mph, gone! There won't be any double today. Finn pitches full, it nips back at Dilshan takes some edge and top of leg into the stumps. Dilshan had been struggling with thumb for the last 15 minutes or so, but it has been a fantastic innings and he gets a standing ovation 370/3
View dismissal KC Sangakkara c †Prior b Tremlett 26 110 93 4 0 27.95
80.4 82.1 mph, the new ball has done the job, Sangakkara nibbles a length ball angling across him, he pushes at it off the front foot and the outside edge results in an easy catch for Prior, that was a good line from Tremlett, passed the batsman just outside off, making him play, Sangakkara's poor Test record in England continues 288/2
View dismissal DPMD Jayawardene c Cook b Finn 49 137 84 8 0 58.33
108.5 86.1 mph, no third Lord's century for Jayawardene, England have their first wicket of the day, Finn gets the outside edge, this time for Jayawardene it doesn't fly past slip, finds Cook at third slip, who latches on to it, the third wicket for Finn, Jayawardene was caught on the crease there, initially moving forward and then getting back 394/4
View dismissal TT Samaraweera c †Prior b Tremlett 9 53 42 0 0 21.42
109.1 83.3 mph, and another wicket for England, not the wisest shot from Samaraweera, who wafts outside off without any footwork, it was slightly overpitched and outside off from Tremlett, a thin edge through to the keeper, two specialist batsmen removed, England will start thinking about a first-innings lead now 394/5
View dismissal HAPW Jayawardene c Swann b Finn 40 89 64 5 1 62.50
128.1 82.8 mph, gone, edged to Swann in the slips! Well, Finn has been wayward but he keeps bowling wicket-taking deliveries. This was a good one, pitched up to the bat and drawing the batsman half forward. It just left him off the pitch, taking a healthy edge and flying at a nice height to Swann's left 472/8
View dismissal MF Maharoof lbw b Broad 2 26 14 0 0 14.28
114.6 85.3 mph, Maharoof thinks about a review, he had taken one in the second innings at Cardiff, he doesn't thins time after a chat with the non-striker, Broad has struck,that one comes in a long way after pitching just short of a length and outside off, the ball ducked in too quickly for Maharoof, strikes him on the pad way before the bat comes down, hit in front of off and that was going on to hit middle, somewhere near the top, reviewing that would have been a waste 409/6
View dismissal HMRKB Herath st †Prior b Swann 26 51 33 2 1 78.78
127.1 gone! One shot too many for Herath. Swann looped one up on middle, Herath charged out and aimed for the heavens above midwicket but missed completely. Prior does the rest, an easy stumping 466/7
View dismissal CRD Fernando c Strauss b Swann 5 15 7 1 0 71.42
129.3 well, what a catch! Swann finds the edge of the bat and the ball flies to Strauss's left at slip, he just sticks his hand out and is as surprised as anyone to find the ball in it. A real reaction catch, but taken cleanly. Good effort, and Sri Lanka lose another. It's worth mentioning that Strauss doesn't usually field at slip to the spinner 472/9

0.2 82.0 mph, gone! Or is it? Strauss is rapped on the pads, it looked plumb but he's going to review it. Well, that's hit him right in front of middle, total waste of the review. Another outswinger from Welegedara to the left-hander, squaring him up and hitting him on the back pad adjacent to the stumps. 0/1
View dismissal AN Cook st †HAPW Jayawardene b Herath 106 337 231 10 0 45.88
73.6 now, this time he may be stumped. Again Cook used his feet to come down, Herath looped down something of an arm-ball that held its line to beat Cook's outside edge. It was quite wide so Prasanna had to reach right across and then move back to the stumps ... Well, this is really tight. After an absolute age, third umpire Aleem Dar decides that he's seen enough to give Cook out. His bat was on the line, and it was mighty close. He's reached an 18th Test century, and leaves the field to a standing ovation 305/4
View dismissal IJL Trott b Herath 58 122 75 9 0 77.33
25.4 got him! Again it's the flight that troubles Trott, this time he steps forward and drives over the top of a looping, dipping delivery on middle stump. Herath pumps his fist in celebration, and well he might after removing a batsman as obdurate as Trott with his 4th delivery of the innings ... 117/2
View dismissal KP Pietersen b Herath 72 167 124 7 0 58.06
65.3 Herath has got him, KP is gone, start the wailing, that was a terrific delivery though, pitching well outside leg stump, and KP gets forward and half-heartedly tries to defend it, but that turns sharply and goes on to hit off stump, KP was initially looking to pad that away, then decided to play at it, big turn that for Herath 244/3

74.5 84.9 mph, Morgan comes and goes in the blink of an eye. He was trying to push things on, Fernando sent down a slower ball and he was completely deceived, playing far too early to present an easy chance to Lakmal at cover. You can't really fault the batsman there, he was playing for the declaration that appears to be coming soon, but great skill shown by Fernando too to pick up his first wicket of the innings 312/5
View dismissal MJ Prior run out (†HAPW Jayawardene) 4 4 2 0 0 200.00
75.5 Herath to Bell, all sorts of things happening out there! Bell has an almighty heave and the ball shaves just past the leg stump, ricochets off the keeper's pads and rolls towards square leg. Prior wanted a single and set off, Bell sent him back as Prasanna picked up the ball and hurled it at the non-striker's end, sending Prior back with a direct hit 319/6

78.1 80.2 mph, Broad backs away to leg and throws himself into an ungainly swish, but manages only to get an edge on another really good split-finger slower ball from Fernando. Good work from Prasanna too, diving forward to take the catch 335/7
