104.4

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

104.5

Herath to Finn, no run, solid defence once again from Finn

104.6

Herath to Finn, no run, quiet defence once again. My, Finn and Tremlett fairly dwarf most of the Sri Lankans on the field, such a lanky pair

England 452/9   ST Finn 0* (3b)

105.2

Welegedara to Finn, no run, Welegedara comes round the stumps and fires one right at middle, but Finn is solidly behind the ball in defence

105.3

Welegedara to Finn, no run, slightly wider of off stump this time, Finn leans across and taps to cover

105.4

Welegedara to Finn, no run, Welegedara sends down a well-directed, if not particularly pacy, bouncer, and Finn does well to bend his long legs and get underneath it

105.5

Welegedara to Finn, no run, on a length, landing on leg stump. Finn misses an attempted glance and is struck on the thigh

105.6

Welegedara to Finn, no run, chipped in the air just short of mid-off, diving forward! Mighty close, but Sri Lanka's wait continues

England 453/9   ST Finn 0* (8b)

106.6

Herath to Finn, no run, Finn unfurls yet another epic forward defensive

England 458/9   ST Finn 0* (9b)

107.5

Welegedara to Finn, no run, angling across Finn, who stretches forward to defend. The ball takes a thick outside edge but goes straight down

107.6

Welegedara to Finn, no run, pushed to mid-on in the ungainly manner that only a true No. 11 can manage

England 461/9   ST Finn 0* (11b)

108.2

Herath to Finn, 1 run, and Finn is finally off the mark, driving to deep mid-off. Applause ripples through the crowd

England 465/9   ST Finn 1* (12b)

109.1

Fernando to Finn, no run, on a length and straight, Finn defends

109.2

Fernando to Finn, no run, a full-toss is wasted, Finn driving straight to mid-off.

Fernando to Finn, no run, tapped quietly into the leg side

109.4

Fernando to Finn, 1 run, punched through cover, hit nicely on the up

England 466/9   ST Finn 2* (16b)

110.1

Herath to Finn, no run, drifting in from round the wicket, the ball doesn't spin and Finn is struck on the pad ... an optimistic appeal is turned down. Likely heading down leg

110.2

Herath to Finn, 1 leg bye, another appeal for lbw as Finn misses a heave to leg. Again Tucker says no, but Sri Lanka are going to review this. Well, that's going over the top, says HawkEye! Finn survives

110.4

Herath to Finn, no run, looped down on off stump, Finn stretches forward in defence

110.5

Herath to Finn, no run, they definitely seem to be playing for lunch here, more defence from Finn

110.6

Herath to Finn, 1 leg bye, another appeal from Sri Lanka as for the third time Finn is struck on the pad. He had stepped well down the pitch though, and it's turned down. Replays suggest it may have just clipped leg

England 469/9   ST Finn 2* (21b)

111.1

Fernando to Finn, FOUR, Finn swipes across the line and the ball flies to fine leg ... where Maharoof slides right past it to allow a boundary

111.2

Fernando to Finn, no run, Fernando bends his back on this one and gets the ball to rise off the pitch, but it's pushed down the leg side

111.3

Fernando to Finn, no run, pace and bounce again from Fernando! This one bursts past Finn's gloves as he fends

111.4

Fernando to Finn, FOUR, Finn flaps outside off to another back-of-a-length delivery, and the ball flies down to third man. Career-best for Finn

111.5

Fernando to Finn, FOUR, he's opening up now! That's a great shot. Finn spots a full-toss early, whipping it to midwicket with great power. The crowd appreciate that too, and England are closing in on 500 now

111.6

Fernando to Finn, 1 run, chopped down behind point for a single

England 482/9   ST Finn 15* (27b 3x4)

112.1

Herath to Finn, FOUR, Finn is firing now! He jumps down the track like Trumper, getting to the pitch and smiting this high over mid-on. Great shot

112.2

Herath to Finn, no run, defended quietly into the covers

112.3

Herath to Finn, no run, Finn tries to drive this time, but the ball takes an inside edge and ricochets off the ankle

112.4

Herath to Finn, no run, full toss, driven to mid-off

112.5

Herath to Finn, OUT, 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

ST Finn b Herath 19 (29m 32b 4x4 0x6) SR: 59.37

England 486/10   ST Finn 19 (32b 4x4)
