Finn to Dilshan, FOUR, short and ever-so-slightly wide from Finn, terrific pick-up from Dilshan, who stands still and drills a back-foot drive through cover-point for the first boundary of the innings

Sri Lanka 8/0   TM Dilshan 5* (4b 1x4)   ST Finn 1-0-8-0

Finn to Jayawardene, FOUR, bouncer, at the man and Jayawardene swivels to pull majestically over long leg - looked like it had gone all the way but signalled four

Sri Lanka 17/0   DPMD Jayawardene 6* (6b 1x4)   ST Finn 1.2-0-13-0

Finn to Sangakkara, FOUR, edged but it dies on Bairstow and runs through his legs for four! Good bowling from Finn but more runs on the board for Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka 78/3   BMAJ Mendis 4* (2b 1x4)   GP Swann 2.4-0-20-2

Swann to BMAJ Mendis, FOUR, this is reversed and four more! Amazing batting, reversed the hands and took it off the same line this time to the third man fence, really well timed again

Sri Lanka 82/3   BMAJ Mendis 8* (3b 2x4)   GP Swann 2.5-0-24-2

Broad to Mathews, FOUR, length ball outside off, a swing over mid off, welcome boundary, struck well, giving himself a little room outside leg stump
