0.2

Welegedara to Strauss, no run, once more it is way past leg, Strauss tries to flick but misses

0.3

Welegedara to Strauss, no run, better line this time, homing in to middle and leg, inside-edged onto the pads by Strauss

0.4

Welegedara to Strauss, no run, and almost a repeat of the previous delivery, short of length ball that cramps Strauss, who again edges on to his legs, no much movement for Welegedara so far

0.5

Welegedara to Strauss, no run, off the middle of the bat this time, on middle stump, defended off the back foot towards mid-on

0.6

Welegedara to Strauss, no run, a touch fuller this time, clipped towards midwicket by Strauss and that is a maiden

England 0/0   AJ Strauss 0* (6b)
2.1

Welegedara to Strauss, FOUR, first runs off the bat, nicely done by Strauss, a length ball angling into leg stump, no power behind the clip past midwicket from Strauss, the timing and the quick outfield does the job

2.2

Welegedara to Strauss, no run, length ball outside off, 82mph that one, Strauss shoulders arms

2.3

Welegedara to Strauss, no run, good line from Welegedara, in the channel outside off, Strauss is content to leave

2.4

Welegedara to Strauss, no run, a touch shorter than the previous one, same line though ,Strauss defends this one to the off side, no evidence of swing at all so far

2.5

Welegedara to Strauss, no run, well well, not quite a shot you expect to see ten minutes into a Test match, a short ball outside off, Strauss pulls that from outside off, cameras panned towards the boundary before we realised the ball had struck Samaraweera at short leg

2.6

Welegedara to Strauss, OUT, 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

AJ Strauss lbw b Welegedara 4 (14m 12b 1x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

England 5/1   AJ Strauss 4 (12b 1x4)
