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   AN Cook 0* (6b)   UWMBCA Welegedara 2-1-4-1

Lakmal to Trott, OUT, 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

IJL Trott lbw b Lakmal 2 (13m 9b 0x4 0x6) SR: 22.22

England 18/2   AN Cook 11* (13b 1x4)   RAS Lakmal 2.4-0-7-1

Lakmal to Pietersen, OUT, 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

KP Pietersen c Dilshan b Lakmal 2 (10m 8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 25.00

England 22/3   AN Cook 13* (18b 1x4)   RAS Lakmal 3.5-0-9-2

Welegedara to Bell, OUT, 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

IR Bell c Paranavitana b Welegedara 52 (148m 106b 8x4 0x6) SR: 49.05

England 130/4   AN Cook 64* (107b 11x4)   UWMBCA Welegedara 7.5-2-23-2

Fernando to Cook, OUT, 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

AN Cook c Maharoof b Fernando 96 (281m 164b 15x4 0x6) SR: 58.53

England 201/5   EJG Morgan 35* (76b 5x4 1x6)   CRD Fernando 10.2-2-43-1

Lakmal to Morgan, OUT, 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.

EJG Morgan lbw b Lakmal 79 (167m 128b 10x4 2x6) SR: 61.71

England 302/6   MJ Prior 50* (69b 9x4)   RAS Lakmal 16.1-2-52-3

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.

SCJ Broad lbw b Welegedara 54 (73m 51b 9x4 0x6) SR: 105.88

England 410/7   MJ Prior 103* (109b 17x4)   UWMBCA Welegedara 22.1-4-93-3

Welegedara to Swann, OUT, 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.

GP Swann c Paranavitana b Welegedara 4 (3m 5b 1x4 0x6) SR: 80.00

England 414/8   MJ Prior 103* (109b 17x4)   UWMBCA Welegedara 23-4-97-4

Herath to Prior, OUT, 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

MJ Prior b Herath 126 (195m 131b 19x4 0x6) SR: 96.18

England 452/9   CT Tremlett 14* (23b 2x4)   HMRKB Herath 14.3-1-53-1

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   CT Tremlett 24* (41b 3x4)   HMRKB Herath 18.5-1-64-2
