97.3

Fernando to Tremlett, 2 runs, full on off stump and Tremlett is away with a push through the covers

97.4

Fernando to Tremlett, no run, angled in towards the pads and defended down the pitch

97.5

Fernando to Tremlett, 1 run, huge appeal...excellent yorker from Fernando which Tremlett tries to jab down on and gets an inside edge but it's given leg byes. Dilshan uses a review which shows the edge, but it stays leg byes. Work that out.

England 418/8   CT Tremlett 3* (3b)

98.5

Welegedara to Tremlett, no run, too wide outside off and left alone

England 421/8   CT Tremlett 3* (8b)

100.2

Welegedara to Tremlett, FOUR, but will it matter? Tremlett leans forward into a top-class drive that races through the gap at cover and away to the boundary

100.3

Welegedara to Tremlett, no run, Welegedara comes round the wicket, pulling the length back to stop the drive, and Tremlett defends off the back foot

100.4

Welegedara to Tremlett, 1 run, well, this should have been a run out! Tremlett drives almost straight to point on the up and Prior calls him through, all that was needed was a clean throw to the bowler, but the throw is poor and Welegedara is in completely the wrong position anyway ... nothing going Sri Lanka's way

England 427/8   CT Tremlett 8* (11b 1x4)

101.1

Lakmal to Tremlett, no run, pitched up outside off, Tremlett swings but doesn't get near it

101.2

Lakmal to Tremlett, no run, Lakmal gets another one to shape nicely away from the bat, but this time Tremlett opts to leave alone

101.3

Lakmal to Tremlett, no run, big shout for lbw! That's got to be close ... but Doctrove isn't the least bit interested. Good decision from him, big inside edge into the pad

101.4

Lakmal to Tremlett, no run, slapped on the up into the covers. Tremlett is so enormous, it looks like he's batting with a junior bat out there

101.5

Lakmal to Tremlett, FOUR, another quality drive from the big man! Not a tailender's shot at all, he stepped right to the pitch and played the stroke right under his eyes, power and timing combined

101.6

Lakmal to Tremlett, no run, Lakmal pulls the length back, Tremlett defends to point

England 444/8   CT Tremlett 13* (19b 2x4)

103.2

Lakmal to Tremlett, no run, really short from Lakmal, but even though he bangs it in he can't get it up to Tremlett's head. He actually looked down at this bouncer

103.3

Lakmal to Tremlett, 1 run, a thick inside edge shoots between batsman and stumps, rolling to fine leg

103.5

Lakmal to Tremlett, no run, another short ball from Lakmal, and it whizzes past Tremlett at about navel height

103.6

Lakmal to Tremlett, no run, on a length outside off, and shaping away. Tremlett pulls his bat inside the line as the ball reaches him, leaving alone

England 448/8   CT Tremlett 14* (23b 2x4)

105.1

106.1

Herath to Tremlett, no run, defence from Tremlett

106.2

Herath to Tremlett, FOUR, slammed through straight mid-off! It was up to him and Tremlett just swung his massive arms through the line

106.3

Herath to Tremlett, no run, lobbed down outside off, Tremlett just watches it go by

106.4

Herath to Tremlett, no run, defended into the leg side

106.5

Herath to Tremlett, 1 run, speared in from round the stumps, the ball holds its line and takes a thick inside edge, missing the stumps and rolling to fine leg. Cries of anguish from the bowler and close fielders

England 458/9   CT Tremlett 20* (29b 3x4)

107.1

Welegedara to Tremlett, no run, flashed to gully, on the bounce, off the front foot

107.2

Welegedara to Tremlett, no run, this one just seemed to stop in the pitch and pop up at Tremlett off a length ... but it's met with solid defence, so no harm done

107.3

Welegedara to Tremlett, no run, slightly fuller, but straight again. Tremlett defends

107.4

Welegedara to Tremlett, 3 runs, dipping full toss outside off, and Tremlett leans into a square drive ... three runs taken

England 461/9   CT Tremlett 23* (33b 3x4)

108.1

Herath to Tremlett, 3 leg byes, the ball runs very fine down to fine leg ... but has he got any bat on this? Nope, leg-byes. Tremlett runs straight down the pitch taking the runs, hopefully the umpire will have a word

108.3

Herath to Tremlett, no run, quiet defence from Tremlett

108.4

Herath to Tremlett, no run, well, he's stepped down the pitch and swung his bat like a lumberjack's axe ... but the ball goes nowhere. Something of a mis-hit ...

108.5

Herath to Tremlett, no run, and he follows that up with much more orthodox defence

108.6

Herath to Tremlett, no run, defended into the off side to end the over

England 465/9   CT Tremlett 23* (38b 3x4)

109.5

Fernando to Tremlett, no run, short on off stump, Tremlett sways slowly out of the way, looking every inch like one of the Ents out of Lord of the Rings

109.6

Fernando to Tremlett, no run, more defence to end the over

England 466/9   CT Tremlett 23* (40b 3x4)
