16,17,18,19,20 June 2011 (5-day match)
  • Overs 1-50
  • Overs 51-100

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

Sri Lanka 23/1   NT Paranavitana 11* (38b 1x4)   JM Anderson 6.4-2-11-1

Tremlett to Paranavitana, OUT, full, swinging back in, and Tremlett has his man! The bowler went very full, practically a yorker, and Paranavitana was beaten by late movement through the air and struck on the back pad in front of middle. An early wicket for England, just as the dark clouds roll over the ground once more!

NT Paranavitana lbw b Tremlett 11 (67m 43b 1x4 0x6) SR: 25.58

Sri Lanka 23/2   KC Sangakkara 0* (2b)   CT Tremlett 2.5-1-1-1

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   DPMD Jayawardene 3* (7b)   JM Anderson 9-3-12-2

Tremlett to DPMD Jayawardene, OUT, Tremlett gets his man again! Jayawardene gone and Sri Lanka in trouble. Top delivery it was too, seaming away from back of a length, flicking the shoulder of the bat and Prior moved swiftly to his right to snaffle the chance

DPMD Jayawardene c †Prior b Tremlett 4 (39m 25b 0x4 0x6) SR: 16.00

Sri Lanka 39/4   TT Samaraweera 7* (19b 1x4)   CT Tremlett 7.1-4-7-2

Tremlett to Samaraweera, OUT, Tremlett gets a third! Having judged the last ball well Samaraweera was done by a fuller ball. Driveable length, lured the shot but swung away enough to catch and edge and fly to Pietersen at the gully who made no mistake

TT Samaraweera c Pietersen b Tremlett 31 (96m 74b 4x4 0x6) SR: 41.89

Sri Lanka 89/5   HAPW Jayawardene 11* (47b 1x4)   CT Tremlett 12-5-19-3

Tremlett to Perera, OUT, gone this time! Prior holds an excellent take and you have to feel that was coming. Perera didn't look like he fancied this innings at all. Another short ball, another aimless hack across the line, the top edge went high to Prior who managed to hold on to a difficult take

NLTC Perera c †Prior b Tremlett 2 (8m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

Sri Lanka 91/6   HAPW Jayawardene 11* (53b 1x4)   CT Tremlett 13-5-21-4

Tremlett to Herath, OUT, Tremlett has five! The ball spat off an awkward length to catch Herath mid-swivel as he tried to pull, a top edge looping easily to James Anderson at fine leg.

HMRKB Herath c Anderson b Tremlett 12 (23m 15b 1x4 0x6) SR: 80.00

Sri Lanka 117/7   HAPW Jayawardene 24* (69b 3x4)   CT Tremlett 15.1-5-29-5

Swann to HAPW Jayawardene, OUT, gone! Swann strikes with his second delivery! Prasanna was looking to be aggressive straight away, slog-sweeping a looping offspinner out to deep midwicket ... but only as far as Eoin Morgan's waiting hands. He'd done so much good work against the quicks in seaming conditions, that's a disappointing way to end what was turning into a really good knock

HAPW Jayawardene c Morgan b Swann 43 (162m 104b 5x4 0x6) SR: 41.34

Sri Lanka 158/8   CRD Fernando 21* (32b 4x4)   GP Swann 0.2-0-0-1

Tremlett to Lakmal, OUT, and he strikes straight away! A sixth wicket for Chris Tremlett, who sent down a well-directed bouncer that kissed the glove as Lakmal tried to hook - eyes firmly shut - and flew through to Prior. Sri Lanka folding now, and Tremlett reaping full reward for some great bowling

RAS Lakmal c †Prior b Tremlett 0 (4m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Sri Lanka 166/9   CRD Fernando 29* (36b 5x4)   CT Tremlett 17.1-5-35-6

Broad to Welegedara, OUT, that is that, Broad gets a wicket as Welegedara drives straight to cover...that will boost Broad after a tough innings

UWMBCA Welegedara c Morgan b Broad 7 (23m 17b 1x4 0x6) SR: 41.17

Sri Lanka 184/10   CRD Fernando 39* (51b 6x4)   SCJ Broad 19.2-3-51-1
