View dismissal WU Tharanga c Trescothick b Harmison 17 35 30 2 0 56.66
8.6 finally Harmison gets what he deserves. Tharanga had been pinned down by good bowling and tight fielding and pushed onto the back foot, and Harmison pitched one slightly fuller which he edged low to Marcus Trescothick at first slip who took a fairly comfortable two-handed catch. 34/1
View dismissal ST Jayasuriya c Bresnan b Harmison 122 173 136 15 2 89.70
42.3 and there it is. Shorter from Harmison, a typical bellicose smear into the off side, and Tim Bresnan at deep cover takes a superb tumbling catch to end a brilliant innings 259/3
View dismissal DPMD Jayawardene* run out (Bell/Dalrymple) 66 101 62 5 1 106.45
32.1 Dalrymple to Jayasuriya, good grief, a wicket! Jayasuriya pushed off the back foot, Jayawardene looked for a single, sent back, slipped, Dalrymple fielded and whipped off the bails 194/2
View dismissal KC Sangakkara c Pietersen b Mahmood 51 57 41 5 1 124.39
47.2 ... but Mahmood gets it right this time. Off-stump again, another big swish but too much hang-time. Pietersen at deep long-on takes a fine tumbling catch. England's cricket has been better the further they get from the centre of the pitch 298/5
View dismissal TM Dilshan b Bresnan 9 11 11 1 0 81.81
45.4 and another breakthrough. Dilshan getting too ambitious, steps across his stumps for a tickled sweep to fine leg, but instead is bowled round his legs 283/4
View dismissal RP Arnold c Strauss b Harmison 5 12 8 0 0 62.50
48.1 It has been Harmy's on the other hand. Full length, flicked to midwicket where the skipper leads by example 304/7
View dismissal MF Maharoof run out (Collingwood) 0 2 0 0 0 -
47.3 Mahmood to Arnold, and what'd'ya know? There goes another, as Maharoof is run out without facing. Collingwood at point had a single stump to aim at, and made no mistake 298/6
View dismissal WPUJC Vaas c †Jones b Mahmood 13 11 9 2 0 144.44
49.4 and it just gets better and better, as Vaas heaves ambitiously, and Jones snaffles the snick. That will soothe Mahmood's pain ... but not a lot 317/8

View dismissal ME Trescothick c Dilshan b Malinga 9 8 8 2 0 112.50
1.2 slashed on the up straight to backward point. The problem was that he was leaning back rather than over the ball and that’s why it went in the air. 10/1
View dismissal AJ Strauss* c Muralitharan b Maharoof 18 42 23 2 0 78.26
9.4 Oops. Strauss tries to hit over the top but it was a tad too short and he only succeeded in skying the ball to mid off. Enter Pietersen. England expects … 48/2
View dismissal IR Bell c Muralitharan b Malinga 40 88 50 4 1 80.00
19.4 oh dear, that's the breakthrough. A muffed pull spirals into no-man's land on the leg-side, and Muralitharan runs round to complete a fine catch over his shoulder. A pity, because he was starting to warm to his task out there 116/3
View dismissal KP Pietersen b Jayasuriya 73 98 77 9 1 94.80
31.5 and that could be a game-breaker. Massive breakthrough for Sri Lanka, and it's not the spinner that everyone assumed would make the difference. Big rip out of the leg-side rough, Pietersen aimed a smear through midwicket, well beaten 176/4
View dismissal PD Collingwood b Jayasuriya 56 75 61 2 0 91.80
39.5 and that might be that, as Colly misses and loses his middle stump. Quicker and flatter from Jayasuriya, and buzzed through his aggressive stroke. Big breakthrough from an under-rated bowler, and Sri Lanka are all but 2-0 up 222/5
View dismissal JWM Dalrymple st †Sangakkara b Jayasuriya 37 46 34 2 1 108.82
43.6 got im! And there's that quicker ball again. Up near 60mph, which is brisk for a spinner, and Dalrymple is stranded a mile out of his crease. Oh well, it was fun while it lasted, and another good performance from England's new boy 253/7
View dismissal GO Jones c †Sangakkara b Muralitharan 8 9 10 0 1 80.00
42.2 only momentarily mind. Next ball, Jones aims to sweep, the ball loops off his pad, conceivably brushes the glove, and is routinely snatched by Sangakkara behind the stumps. Jones, one senses, is not best pleased with that decision 235/6
TT Bresnan not out 11 18 9 0 1 122.22
View dismissal SI Mahmood run out (†Sangakkara/Muralitharan) 4 3 4 1 0 100.00
44.5 from Muralitharan, but stony silence all around the ground now, as Mahmood scampers for a make-or-break single, and is broken by Sangakkara's shy at the non-striker's end 258/8
View dismissal LE Plunkett run out (Dilshan) 3 3 3 0 0 100.00
45.4 from Malinga, direct hit from Sri Lanka's best fielder, and another nail in England's coffin. 263/9
View dismissal SJ Harmison run out (†Sangakkara/Muralitharan) 2 3 3 0 0 66.66
46.4 from Muralitharan, and that is comprehensively that. A suitably shambolic denouement, as Harmison swung, missed, started, stopped, went hell for leather anyway, keeper lobbed the ball, Murali whipped the bails, and you can guess the rest. 273/10
