40.4

Harmison to Sangakkara, no run, low full toss steered to point

40.5

Harmison to Sangakkara, no run, that one whistled through. A hint of an appeal from Jones, but that's as natural to him as breathing. Still, umpire Hair didn't signal a wide, so job done

Sri Lanka 255/2   KC Sangakkara 28* (28b 1x4 1x6)
42.4

Harmison to Sangakkara, 1 run, so nearly two in two! Hoicked out to the leg-side, but Kabir Ali has strayed in from the boundary's edge and can only get a hand to it as he times his leap well. At least he saved the boundary

Sri Lanka 260/3   KC Sangakkara 29* (29b 1x4 1x6)
43.1

Bresnan to Sangakkara, 1 run, firmly pushed down the ground

47.1

Mahmood to Sangakkara, FOUR, simply pinged off a length through the gap at cow corner. And that's Sangakkara's fifty, from just 40 balls. Mahmood, on the other hand, brought up his fifty ages ago

47.2

Mahmood to Sangakkara, 1 wide, too much width - 17 wides in the innings now

47.2

Mahmood to Sangakkara, OUT, ... 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
