  England innings (50 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal AN Cook* c †Sangakkara b Senanayake 56 118 85 3 0 65.88
29.2 51.2 mph, goes to paddle sweep but like Root it's popped a catch up to Sangakkara and that completes a real grind from Cook since passing fifty, slowed right down. Trying to tuck it around the corner, it took a decent top edge and looped up behind the keeper who spun 180 degrees, took two steps forward and claimed the easy catch 136/4
View dismissal IR Bell c & b Mendis 37 59 42 3 0 88.09
14.6 49.2 mph, gone this time! What a mixture from Mendis (and Bell). The batsman can barely believe it. Pops a dolly of a return catch to Mendis as the ball, just short of a length, stopped in the pitch which meant Bell played too early. 76/1
View dismissal GS Ballance c & b Malinga 10 20 15 0 0 66.66
20.1 76.4 mph, and he strikes first ball! Length outside off stump, Ballance went to play it into the covers but, like Bell's dismissal, it totally stopped in the wicket and Ballance popped a catch back to the bowler. Another bonus for Sri Lanka, a pretty ordinary delivery getting stuck in the wicket 98/2
View dismissal JE Root c †Sangakkara b Priyanjan 10 16 11 1 0 90.90
23.2 49.7 mph, full, Root goes to reverse sweep and misses, there's two cries, one for lbw and then, when the ball popped up to Sangakkara, for a catch behind. Not out given on both counts but they go for the review and it looks straight off the glove. Yep smack bang off the glove, straight up and Sangakkara takes the catch walking a yard in front of the stumps 116/3
View dismissal EJG Morgan c Jayawardene b Mathews 17 26 27 0 1 62.96
30.5 80.3 mph, back of a length, Morgan tries to help it around the corner but gets a top edge and it carries all the way to deep backward sqaure. That's a very bad wicket for England to lose. Morgan got it slightly wrong and that was dangerous the way he tried to play it, had he tried to whack into Harborne it may well have gone for six 142/5
View dismissal RS Bopara b Mendis 17 38 30 0 0 56.66
37.2 51.2 mph, another horror show for England! Bopara goes to pull a short ball, which he completely misses and gets bowled between his legs as the ball dips slightly under the shot. Credit to Mendis as well, though, as it was delivered slower 170/6
View dismissal JC Buttler run out (Senanayake) 21 53 24 1 0 87.50
43.2 Senanayake to Jordan, drifts onto the pads, clipped away fine and this pair are very rapid between the wickets 199/7
View dismissal CJ Jordan run out (Perera/Mendis) 30 44 42 3 0 71.42
47.3 from Mendis, nine down! A awful mix-up. Jordan nudged to the leg side. Not sure there was ever a single but Anderson kept on running and Jordan had no chance in the end 218/9
View dismissal JC Tredwell b Malinga 0 5 5 0 0 0.00
44.6 81.7 mph, cleaned up! Full and straight, Tredwell misses trying to drive through the off side 201/8
View dismissal JM Anderson b Malinga 5 15 7 0 0 71.42
48.1 68.3 mph, all over! A slower ball completely defeats Anderson as he hoicks to leg. Hits the off stump. 219/10

View dismissal TM Dilshan c Root b Tredwell 28 33 23 5 0 121.73
7.2 a skip down the wicket, slapped into the off side but in the air and Root dives to catch at cover a fine flying take to his right-hand side and England get a much-needed wicket. Dilshan didn't get the elevation on the stroke and it was an excellent catch from Root 55/1
View dismissal MDKJ Perera lbw b Anderson 19 48 29 2 0 65.51
10.5 85.7 mph, full at the stumps, huge cry for lbw and given him out! Perera goes for the review almost immediately but there's nothing on Hot Spot nor on Real Time Snicko. Height could save Perera here but no, Hawk Eye has the delivery taking a good smack of the top of off stump, far more than "umpire's call" might suggest. Classic full inswing from Anderson and England are moving here 62/3
View dismissal KC Sangakkara c Jordan b Tredwell 2 8 13 0 0 15.38
9.6 49.9 mph, floated up, sharp turn squares Sangakkara up takes a thick edge that's taken by Jordan with an outstanding leap to his left, outstanding take because that went sharply off the edge but it was the sharp turn that did for Sangakkara, it pitched on about middle and leg and ragged right across the stumps 59/2
View dismissal DPMD Jayawardene c Anderson b Jordan 53 110 90 4 0 58.88
38.4 84.3 mph, full length and Jayawardene goes to drive down the ground and gets it all wrong, putting it high into the sky and straight to mid-off. Extraordinary stroke, he was in complete control put didn't time this at all, sending it high and Anderson didn't have to move to take a straightforward catch. Perhaps didn't quite come onto the bat as Jayawardene would have liked 160/4
