0.1

Anderson to Paranavitana, no run, decent start on off stump, Paranavitana comes forward and defends square into the off side

0.2

Anderson to Paranavitana, no run, hint of swing back into the left hander, takes an outside edge but falls well short of gully

0.3

Anderson to Paranavitana, no run, touch wider outside off and left alone...not a huge amount of carry through to the keeper

0.4

Anderson to Paranavitana, no run, wrong line, on leg stump and swings down the leg side to Matt Prior...Anderson won't mind seeing the movement, though

0.5

Anderson to Paranavitana, no run, full outside off and a comfortable leave

0.6

Anderson to Paranavitana, no run, good length on middle and off, Paranavitana stays back in his crease and defends

Sri Lanka 0/0   JM Anderson 1-1-0-0
2.1

Anderson to Paranavitana, 1 run, going very full in search of swing, actually ends up a low full toss which is pushed through mid-off without much timing

2.2

Anderson to Thirimanne, no run, hmmm, Jimmy will like that as this moves late into the left hander who works it straight to short leg

2.3

Anderson to Thirimanne, no run, full at middle and off, punched firmly down to mid-on

2.4

Anderson to Thirimanne, no run, this is the one Anderson makes go the other way across the left handers but it's too wide to make him play

2.5

Anderson to Thirimanne, no run, pushed down the leg side as he searches for a full length

2.6

Anderson to Thirimanne, no run, back on off stump to end the over and it's defended towards the bowler

Sri Lanka 4/0   JM Anderson 2-1-1-0
4.1

Anderson to Paranavitana, no run, nicely bowled, starts to move away from the batsman who defends awkwardly and takes his injured bottom hand off the bat

4.2

Anderson to Paranavitana, no run, full and very wide outside off stump, no interest in playing at it

4.3

Anderson to Paranavitana, no run, pushed very wide again and left alone...ball starting to swing but Anderson not quite getting the line right

4.4

Anderson to Paranavitana, no run, third time in a row, full and wide and swinging away further outside off

4.5

Anderson to Paranavitana, 2 runs, so it is, and it's well played with a solid push into the off side...Eoin Morgan throws at the stumps and gives away an overthrow

4.6

Anderson to Paranavitana, no run, we have a review. They are convinced he's nicked this to Prior. Hotspot isn't very clear. Might have been back pad. Don't think you can overrule this one and indeed it says not out. Was a cracking delivery which moved away late and England were adamant it was out, but no clear evidence

Sri Lanka 9/0   JM Anderson 3-1-3-0
6.1

Anderson to Thirimanne, no run, swings away from Thirimanne who leaves alone but encouraging movement for Anderson

6.2

Anderson to Thirimanne, 1 run, wrong line this time and it allows a clip down to fine leg

6.3

Anderson to Paranavitana, 1 run, on leg stump and flicked down to fine leg again...Anderson doesn't looked entirely happy at the moment

6.4

Anderson to Thirimanne, 2 runs, full on middle and leg, met with a solid push between midwicket and mid-on

6.5

Anderson to Thirimanne, no run, he's been solid so far and defends this comfortably into the leg side

6.6

Anderson to Thirimanne, no run, goes the other way across the batsman but doesn't make him play...England don't want to waste this new ball

Sri Lanka 14/0   JM Anderson 4-1-7-0
8.1

Anderson to Thirimanne, no run, hmm, Anderson has bowled a lot of away swingers to the lefties this morning. This is another fired across but too short and too wide

8.2

Anderson to Thirimanne, no run, this is fuller and tempting Thirimanne to drive but the debutant resists

8.3

Anderson to Thirimanne, no run, another big away swinger, setting him up for the inducker? Perhaps but for now Thirimanne leaves nicely

8.4

Anderson to Thirimanne, no run, there was the inswinger and though it started a touch wide of off the movement did draw a poked drive and the ball slid past the edge

8.5

Anderson to Thirimanne, 3 runs, another big inswinger, somehow Thirimanne managed to get his bat in front of a planted front leg and punched it down the ground

8.6

Anderson to Paranavitana, no run, angles in and swings away but too short and wide to draw a shot

Sri Lanka 21/0   JM Anderson 5-1-10-0
10.1

Anderson to Paranavitana, no run, Anderson swinging it away from around the wicket looks excellent but it does take the edge off the inswinger

10.2

Anderson to Paranavitana, no run, plenty of swing for Anderson, who has taken his pace down to around the low 80s, but the line isn't great

10.3

Anderson to Paranavitana, no run, again Anderson is trying to tempt Paranavitana with a wide one but he leaves easily

10.4

Anderson to Paranavitana, no run, another simple leave outside off stump. Inswinger coming?

10.5

Anderson to Paranavitana, no run, yes. Big, hooping inswinger and it came back a mile. Paranavitana was as calm as ever in defence

10.6

Anderson to Paranavitana, no run, good delivery to finish, shaping away but from a much fuller length

Sri Lanka 21/0   JM Anderson 6-2-10-0
12.1

Anderson to Thirimanne, no run, Anderson continues from around the wicket, and is a touch short this delivery, Thirimanne defends solidly

12.2

Anderson to Thirimanne, no run, excellent line, touch of movement away too. Now, pitch it up. Thirimanne's defence is again very calm

12.3

Anderson to Thirimanne, no run, swing takes this from wide of off stump to wider and Thirimanne eases his bat above his head

12.4

Anderson to Thirimanne, 1 wide, tennis-ball bounce here from a short length, still some bounce is better than none. Prior jumps and seems to hang in the air a long time to collect

12.4

Anderson to Thirimanne, OUT, this time it's full, finds the edge of a slightly loose drive and a very simple catch for Strauss at first slip! Thirimanne's maiden innings showed promise but he'll be disappointed with the shot to get out

HDRL Thirimanne c Strauss b Anderson 10 (62m 38b 0x4 0x6) SR: 26.31

12.5

Anderson to Sangakkara, no run, swings a long way but is too short to bother the batsman

12.6

Anderson to Sangakkara, no run, too wide to finish the over and another simple leave

Sri Lanka 23/1   JM Anderson 7-2-11-1
14.1

Anderson to Sangakkara, no run, leaving the left-hander through the air, but starting well wide of off and going further. Easily left alone

14.2

Anderson to Sangakkara, 1 run, this one is angled in and holds its line, Sangakkara tucks off the hip down to fine leg

14.3

Anderson to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, squared up! Great, attacking swing bowling from Anderson. He angled the ball in full, and swung it away very late. Jayawardene had committed himself to a nudge to leg, and was turned around by the movement, the leading edge rolling into the covers

14.4

Anderson to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, this one hits the seam and moves back in, Jayawardene is right behind it in defence

14.5

Anderson to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, very full again, Jayawardene digs it out to cover

14.6

Anderson to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, shaping away from the right-hander, who steps forward and across and raises his arms to leave

Sri Lanka 24/2   JM Anderson 8-2-12-1
16.1

Anderson to Sangakkara, no run, Anderson stays round the wicket to Sangakkara, but this one is shoved well down the leg side

16.2

Anderson to Sangakkara, no run, Anderson wobbles a full one away from the batsman, who leaves alone. The ball swings in the opposite direction on its way to Prior, good take from him

16.3

Anderson to Sangakkara, no run, wider still, and another leave. It'd be suicide to push the bat out at a ball this wide

16.4

Anderson to Sangakkara, no run, another wide delivery, swinging away, another leave. Is Anderson setting him up for the one that comes back in?

16.5

Anderson to Sangakkara, no run, yes indeed, this one is fired straight at the pads, but Sangakkara is wise to Anderson's plan and has it well covered

16.6

Anderson to Sangakkara, OUT, gone! Edged and caught behind! That's a really poor short from a good batsman. The ball is hooping around on a pitch with a greenish tinge, and he needlessly flings the bat out at a wide one. The shot of a distracted man? The ball took a healthy edge and nestled in Prior's gloves, and Sri Lanka sink deeper at 29 for 3

KC Sangakkara c †Prior b Anderson 2 (21m 14b 0x4 0x6) SR: 14.28

Sri Lanka 29/3   JM Anderson 9-3-12-2
18.1

Anderson to Samaraweera, no run, the crowd manage to drum up some noise as Anderson runs in, it's a fairly gentle start from the bowler as the away swinger starts wide and goes wider

18.2

Anderson to Samaraweera, no run, good delivery this time though, straighter, full, swinging away late and Samaraweera's defence was a flat-footed poke

18.3

Anderson to Samaraweera, no run, more secure in his judgement this time, Samaraweera leaves all alone

18.4

Anderson to Samaraweera, no run, Anderson jumps wider to angle this in, but can't angle it in enough to draw a shot

18.5

Anderson to Samaraweera, no run, that's the one Anderson is looking for. Angles in almost towards middle stump before veering away late and turning Samaraweera around in defence

18.6

Anderson to Samaraweera, FOUR, Anderson suffers the Icarus curse, striving for the sun (or start leg-hit off) and the swing disappears, leaving Samaraweera the chance to help himself to a boundary clipped around the corner

Sri Lanka 33/3   JM Anderson 10-3-16-2
20.1

Anderson to Samaraweera, no run, this is a good nut from Anderson, squaring the batsman up in defence

20.2

Anderson to Samaraweera, no run, excellent length from Anderson, drawing Samaraweera reluctantly forward. Clips him on the bottom hand as he defends

20.3

Anderson to Samaraweera, no run, at the moment Samaraweera isn't moving his feet at all. His defence looks shaky as a result

20.4

Anderson to Samaraweera, no run, no need for foot movement here, instead just a simple leave

20.5

Anderson to Samaraweera, no run, again Samaraweera leaves but this all looks rather like an inswinger is coming

20.6

Anderson to Samaraweera, no run, pfft, what do I know. Instead it's an away-swinging length ball that Samaraweera for no good reason pokes to gully. Should have left it

Sri Lanka 33/3   JM Anderson 11-4-16-2
22.1

Anderson to Samaraweera, no run, Anderson running in very gently, focussing on control, swings this away but it's left alone

22.2

Anderson to Samaraweera, 1 run, this catches Samaraweera on the crease as an inside edge is squeezed to deep square

22.3

Anderson to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, good delivery this, drawing Jayawardene forward and finding an edge. Soft hands ensured no problem for the batsman

22.4

Anderson to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, good judgement from Jayawardene who has hardly played at a single one he hasn't needed to

22.5

Anderson to DPMD Jayawardene, 1 run, after a string of outswingers this one hoops back in, finding the inside-half of the bat and heading off to deep square

22.6

Anderson to Samaraweera, no run, away-swinging yorker is smartly dug out by Samaraweera who got his feet out the way just in time

Sri Lanka 39/3   JM Anderson 12-4-18-2
30.1

Anderson to HAPW Jayawardene, no run, Anderson is fuller that either of the tall bowlers but not for the first time today, a touch too wide

30.2

Anderson to HAPW Jayawardene, no run, again this is very wide, must have been close to being called

30.3

Anderson to HAPW Jayawardene, no run, this is straighter and brings calm defence

30.4

Anderson to HAPW Jayawardene, no run, steered towards point as Anderson finds good bounce from a length

30.5

Anderson to HAPW Jayawardene, 2 runs, Anderson ventures full searching for a drive, finds a careful one that is nicely placed wide of point

30.6

Anderson to HAPW Jayawardene, 2 leg byes, this heads down the leg side and flicks the thigh on it's way to Tremlett at fine leg

Sri Lanka 66/4   JM Anderson 13-4-20-2
32.1

Anderson to Samaraweera, no run, snaking back in towards the batsman, who defends to leg with a hop

32.2

Anderson to Samaraweera, FOUR, shot! Samaraweera is down on bended knee to thrash this through the covers. It was full and wide, his feet didn't move much but his head was level and his hands were in a great position for the shot

32.3

Anderson to Samaraweera, no run, Anderson responds by pulling his length back a touch, Samaraweera defends from the crease

32.4

Anderson to Samaraweera, no run, on a length and straight from Anderson, Thilan defends back down the track

32.5

Anderson to Samaraweera, no run, Anderson offers up a hint of width, Samaraweera stands tall and punches hard into the covers

32.6

Anderson to Samaraweera, 4 leg byes, pushed down the leg side, the ball strikes the thigh pad and races away to the fine leg boundary ... but was he actually playing a stroke there? Anderson doesn't seem to think so, and is left standing with hands on hips as the field swaps over around him

Sri Lanka 75/4   JM Anderson 14-4-24-2
34.1

Anderson to Samaraweera, no run, swinging away, but swinging from the hand and Samaraweera can easily leave alone

34.2

Anderson to Samaraweera, no run, speared down the leg side by Anderson, Samaraweera misses the glance and that's a good take by Prior

34.3

Anderson to Samaraweera, no run, good length from Anderson, and Samaraweera is neither forward nor back as he defends to cover

34.4

Anderson to Samaraweera, no run, Anderson pitches up, and Samaraweera is tempted into an injudicious swipe! The ball zips past the outside edge of a loose drive

34.5

Anderson to Samaraweera, no run, moving away again, this time Samaraweera covers his off stump and leaves well alone

34.6

Anderson to Samaraweera, no run, and Anderson ends the over with another outswinger, which is also left alone

Sri Lanka 75/4   JM Anderson 15-5-24-2
36.1

Anderson to Samaraweera, no run, outswinger from Jimmy, he gets appreciable movement but Samaraweera doesn't have to play at it

36.2

Anderson to Samaraweera, no run, change-up from Anderson! This one hooped in through the air and Samaraweera only seemed to spot it very late, but re-adjusted to defend to cover

36.3

Anderson to Samaraweera, no run, another outswinger pushed wide of off, Samaraweera lets it go by

36.4

Anderson to Samaraweera, no run, fuller, but wider still and Samaraweera doesn't even think of a shot

36.5

Anderson to Samaraweera, no run, on a length outside off, this time Samaraweera plays a shot, defending to cover

36.6

Anderson to Samaraweera, no run, beaten by a beauty! A virtually unplayable delivery, it was angled in and moved away very late. Samaraweera had to play, and is rooted to the crease as the ball buzzes past his outside edge

Sri Lanka 76/4   JM Anderson 16-6-24-2
38.1

Anderson to HAPW Jayawardene, no run, good start from Anderson, full, drawing the batsman forward to defend

38.2

Anderson to HAPW Jayawardene, 1 run, full length and a touch of swing finds a hint of outside edge but it goes down and through point for a couple

38.3

Anderson to Samaraweera, no run, inswinger first up to Samaraweera, who played really well last evening, and leaves well here

38.4

Anderson to Samaraweera, no run, another hooping inswinger and it hurries the batsman as he squeezes out defence

38.5

Anderson to Samaraweera, 2 runs, third inswinger in a row, really does a long way, Samaraweera nudges to midwicket smartly to collect a couple

38.6

Anderson to Samaraweera, 3 runs, more runs here as Jayawardene pops forward and it slides off the face past point towards the rope

Sri Lanka 87/4   JM Anderson 17-6-30-2
40.1

Anderson to HAPW Jayawardene, no run, ooh, Anderson snakes one past the outside edge of Jayawardene

40.2

Anderson to HAPW Jayawardene, no run, again Anderson is happy venturing full and looking for swing. Firmly patted back down the pitch

40.3

Anderson to HAPW Jayawardene, no run, left all alone outside off

40.4

Anderson to HAPW Jayawardene, no run, this is pushed calmly and all along the ground to cover

40.5

Anderson to HAPW Jayawardene, no run, solid forward block from Jayawardene

40.6

Anderson to HAPW Jayawardene, no run, touch shorter from Anderson here so Jayawardene is shoved back to defend this time instead

Sri Lanka 89/5   JM Anderson 18-7-30-2
42.1

Anderson to HAPW Jayawardene, no run, wonder what Jayawardene made of Perera's innings. He's working very hard to survive here

42.2

Anderson to HAPW Jayawardene, FOUR, ah lovely shot. Simple flick off the toes, ideal timing, speeds to the rope. he's played so well this series

42.3

Anderson to HAPW Jayawardene, no run, swinging for Anderson as always but starts too wide

42.4

Anderson to HAPW Jayawardene, no run, good judgement from Jayawardene to leave alone outside off

42.5

Anderson to HAPW Jayawardene, 3 runs, another lovely shot. On the up Jayawardene eases a drive, placing it wide of mid-off to send Cook on a run to the boundary. Fielder does well to scoop the ball back from the boundary edge

42.6

Anderson to Herath, no run, Herath solidly blocks his first ball, timing it so well that Morgan had to scamper and dive at point to field

Sri Lanka 98/6   JM Anderson 19-7-37-2
51.1

Anderson to Fernando, no run, a loosener from Jimmy, curving gently away outside off. The ball doesn't bounce much, zipping past the under edge of Fernando's flailing bat

51.2

Anderson to Fernando, no run, much better from the big Sri Lankan fast bowler, picking the line and leaving another outswinger alone outside off

51.3

Anderson to Fernando, 1 run, a touch too straight from Anderson, Fernando nudges to short fine leg

51.4

Anderson to HAPW Jayawardene, 3 runs, neat little shot from Prasanna, who gets into a good position to pick up a couple of runs with a flick to midwicket

51.5

Anderson to Fernando, no run, short and wide outside off, Fernando scythes a cut towards Morgan in the gully, the ball reaching him on the bounce. He's actually done well just to stop that, it was hit really hard

51.6

Anderson to Fernando, no run, another snaking outswinger from Anderson, the ball aimed at middle and off but kept out by a defensive bat

Sri Lanka 134/7   JM Anderson 20-7-41-2
53.1

Anderson to Fernando, no run, Anderson attacks the stumps, and though Fernando is not close to getting in line he does enough to keep the ball out

53.2

Anderson to Fernando, no run, short and rising outside off, Fernando whips his bat behind his back to leave

53.3

Anderson to Fernando, FOUR, a weak long-hop outside off from Anderson, the ball slipping out well below his usual pace. Fernando waited deep in the crease and chopped the ball hard behind square on the off side

53.4

Anderson to Fernando, no run, a little more effort in this one, and Fernando defends from the crease in the time-honoured manner of the tailender

53.5

Anderson to Fernando, 2 runs, pushed through the gap at cover, and they're back from the second. Well, Fernando may not have much technique, but he seems to have a good eye and is laying bat on ball

53.6

Anderson to Fernando, no run, hooping outswinger from Anderson, and the line is perfect, squaring Fernando up in defence

Sri Lanka 144/7   JM Anderson 21-7-47-2
55.1

Anderson to Fernando, no run, good length from Anderson, pitching up outside off but not quite full enough to invite the drive. Fernando toe-ends a defensive push back down the track

55.2

Anderson to Fernando, FOUR, a fortunate boundary for Fernando! Another perfectly pitched outswinger from Anderson, who does enough to take a thick outside edge only for the ball to shoot right through the gap between the third slip and gully and roll to third man

55.3

Anderson to Fernando, no run, Fernando prods defensively into the covers

55.4

Anderson to Fernando, no run, Fernando stays on a leg stump line, exposing his stumps, and drives a full, straight ball to cover

55.5

Anderson to Fernando, 1 run, punched to cover point, the fielders converge but there's just enough time for a single

55.6

Anderson to HAPW Jayawardene, no run, this one curves back in to the batsman, rapping him on the pads ... there's an appeal, which is turned down, but they're going to review it. Well, this is actually closer than it looked at first, but the ball may only have just clipped the top of leg, so the original decision remains - not out

Sri Lanka 149/7   JM Anderson 22-7-52-2
57.1

Anderson to HAPW Jayawardene, no run, an outswinger rears up outside off to beat the bat by a good few inches. Too good to get close to

57.2

Anderson to HAPW Jayawardene, no run, fuller and straighter, the ball is defended to leg off the inside half of the bat

57.3

Anderson to HAPW Jayawardene, 1 leg bye, Anderson targets the pads once again, but pushes the ball too far down leg

57.4

Anderson to Fernando, no run, just short of a good length outside off, Fernando stands tall and defends to point

57.5

Anderson to Fernando, no run, Fernando is proving fiendishly effective here, and continues to frustrate with his dogged defence. Gritty batting, just what his team needs

57.6

Anderson to Fernando, FOUR, late cut, through gully and down to third man for four! The previous boundaries he collected there were off the edge, but this was a really good shot. He stayed leg-side of the ball once again, waiting until the last moment before deflecting the ball
