England 32/2   HMRKB Herath 1-0-1-0
11.1

Herath to Trott, no run, Herath has been nothing if not accurate and Trott's full face finds cover

11.2

Herath to Trott, 2 runs, Trott gets down on one knee very early and dinks over his shoulder

11.3

Herath to Trott, 1 run, yes, no, wait, yes, no, yes. no is the clear calling as Bopara's neat cut shot is half stopped at point. Never run on a misfield they say, and eventually Bopara followed the advice

11.4

Herath to Bopara, no run, fullish ball on middle that Bopara gets back to try and defend, looked hurried on the shot

11.5

Herath to Bopara, no run, more solid as Bopara comes forward to defend some flight from Herath

11.6

Herath to Bopara, FOUR, silky cut shot to a ball that was a fraction short. Bopara picked a gap behind point and threaded it through beautifully. That ought to ease his palpable nerves for a moment

England 42/2   HMRKB Herath 2-0-8-0
13.1

Herath to Bopara, no run, tossed up around off stump and Bopara stretches forward to defend under his eyes

13.2

Herath to Bopara, no run, ooh, some flight and bite from Herath. Bopara looked to turn it to leg but it spun onto the leading edge

13.3

Herath to Bopara, no run, massive shout for lbw as Bopara plays around a quicker ball, looked to be heading to leg but the umpire gave it not out and Sri Lanka opted not to review. Really looked worth another look

13.4

Herath to Bopara, no run, ooh! Close again! Bopara goes back to a full and flat ball that skids under his attempted cut this far past off stump

13.5

Herath to Bopara, no run, very tentative now Bopara, creeping forward and hanging a bat somewhere in line. The ball slides past the inside edge

13.6

Herath to Bopara, no run, Bopara plays for turn that isn't there and ends up prodding with an inside edge. Just shows what one spinning delivery can do. For the moment, Bopara has no clue if it's turning or not

England 44/2   HMRKB Herath 3-1-8-0
15.1

Herath to Bopara, no run, Bopara is pinned to the crease in defence. After all the playing and missing I doubt they'd fancy charging down

15.2

Herath to Bopara, 1 run, gold, otherwise known as a single, as Bopara sweeps very uneasily

15.3

Herath to Trott, 1 run, more conventional from Trott pushing a single down the ground

15.4

Herath to Bopara, no run, Bopara could be gone here lbw. Given not out by Doctrove, but he gives everything not out. Sri Lanka review. It was flighted and Bopara got forward and across his stumps. He's more than 2.5m down and 49% of the ball is hitting leg which means it just stays an on-field call

15.5

Herath to Bopara, 1 run, quicker ball dragged down, sweet mercy for Bopara as he turns it to leg

15.6

Herath to Trott, 2 runs, good work from Trott, skipping down the wicket and flicking fine around the corner for a couple that brings up a torturous England 50

17.3

Herath to Trott, 2 runs, good shot from Trott, he looks more certain here, full-facing a drive wide of cover for a couple

17.4

Herath to Trott, no run, touch short and a touch wide but it skids on and under Trott's attempted cut

17.5

Herath to Trott, no run, the bounce here is very low, Trott again shaped to cut but could only toe-end it

17.6

Herath to Trott, 1 run, more flight here and Trott celebrates by milking a single to long-off

England 60/2   HMRKB Herath 5-1-17-0

Herath to Trott, 1 run, lovely shot this, Trott stretching across outside off stump and flicking to leg

35.6

39.2

Herath to Trott, 1 run, Trott this time works a single into space

39.3

Herath to Morgan, FOUR, Sri Lanka really ragged now. They are stunned for the moment by their ineptitude. Morgan on the reverse-sweep again, once again he doesn't get very much of it but beat the keeper and it raced away
