England 183/6   TT Bresnan 3* (2b)

27.1

Randiv to Bresnan, no run, Bresnan hangs back and waits on this before poking to the off side

27.2

Randiv to Bresnan, no run, the demon lack of spin does for Bresnan on the outside edge

27.3

Randiv to Bresnan, 1 run, flat, back of a length offspin from around the wicket it proving hard to get away. Bresnan nudges a single to leg

Malinga to Bresnan, FOUR, suddenly it's a good over for England. Malinga gets his length and line wrong and Bresnan swings a leg-side full toss to the square leg boundary

England 205/6   TT Bresnan 10* (9b 1x4)

Lakmal to Bresnan, 5 wides, oh dear, Lakmal has got this all wrong. Very full but miles down the leg side. England back in business now

30.2

Lakmal to Bresnan, FOUR, four more! Bresnan's heave to cow corner pays off. Not a great delivery, Lakmal is under pressure here

30.3

Lakmal to Bresnan, FOUR, and another! Horrid luck for the bowler this time. Another full toss, Bresnan was aiming cow corner but found an inside edge that bounced close to the stumps and down to the fine leg rope

Lakmal to Bresnan, FOUR, and another! Bresnan is having a dream return for England! Lakmal unable to hit the pitch and Bresnan just eases his arms through it, pinging it down to deep square

31.2

Malinga to Bresnan, OUT, gone this time! Bresnan tried to walk across his stumps and dink Malinga round the corner. He missed, it struck his back leg. It looked plumb on first viewing but replays showed it heading a long way down leg. Crucial little cameo though from Bresnan

England 226/7   TT Bresnan 23 (14b 4x4)
