82.1

Welegedara to Broad, no run, good length, angling in to off stump, and Broad keeps it out with some straight-batted defence

83.1

Lakmal to Broad, no run, full, swinging well down the leg side and Broad can't reach it

83.4

Lakmal to Broad, no run, chipped uppishly! But the ball lands short of the midwicket fielder

England 320/6   SCJ Broad 10* (11b 2x4)

Welegedara to Broad, 1 run, Broad is too early into the straight drive, chipping the ball just short of the bowler in his follow-through, and the ball is parried into the off side, allowing a single

England 326/6   SCJ Broad 11* (12b 2x4)
85.2

Lakmal to Broad, no run, good delivery to the left-hander, snaking back in to him. Broad defends, but there's a big gap between bat and pad

85.4

Lakmal to Broad, 1 run, short, another attempted bouncer from Lakmal but it's dealt with easily enough by Broad, who pulls hard out to deep midwicket

Welegedara to Broad, no run, outside off, hint of shape away from the left hander and it's left alone

Welegedara to Broad, FOUR, finds the outside edge but Broad plays it with soft hands and it beats a diving gully down to third man...always a profitable area at Lord's

88.5

Welegedara to Broad, no run, good line, on off stump, Broad defends from the crease square into the off side

88.6

Welegedara to Broad, FOUR, cracking shot, that's what Broad can do...a wide delivery but not quite a half volley and he drove it on the up over cover. Can be dangerous in this situation

England 351/6   SCJ Broad 25* (31b 5x4)
89.3

Lakmal to Broad, no run, almost a mix-up in the running...Broad drove powerfully towards mid-off who fumbled as he dived, then there was some confusion over whether to take a single and Broad had to scurry back

England 357/6   SCJ Broad 27* (35b 5x4)
91.5

Lakmal to Broad, FOUR, short and on Broad's hip, pulls it away with a roll of wrists and it goes too fine for long leg to cut it off

91.6

Lakmal to Broad, FOUR, shorter this time and hammered with more power...he picks it up early and pulls it to deep square-leg and even though the fielder is only a few yards away he didn't have a chance

Welegedara to Broad, 2 runs, close for Sri Lanka...Broad just gets away with this as he tries to loft straight down the ground and it lobs over mid-on who was scampering back. Broad not holding anything back

England 373/6   SCJ Broad 38* (40b 7x4)
93.3

Lakmal to Broad, no run, well bowled! That's the ball of the morning as it nips back and beats Broad on the inside edge. Close to taking off stump.

93.4

Lakmal to Broad, 3 runs, another positive drive on the up, it wasn't really timed but it runs away over a fast outfield and almost beats the chasing fielder

Welegedara to Broad, FOUR, more pain for the bowler as Broad launches this in the air straight down the ground

England 410/6   SCJ Broad 54* (50b 9x4)
96.1

Welegedara to Broad, OUT, 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.
