    0.6 bowled him! Strauss is gone for a duck. He played back to one that drifted in to him from round the wicket and tried to defend, the ball straightened off the pitch, beat the outside edge and pegged back off stump 0/1

    9.1 on the stumps, forward defensive with bat and pad, there's an appeal for lbw ... and Sri Lanka call for the review again. Replays show it was pad first - but would it have slid on to hit the stumps? Yes, it would have cannoned into middle and leg halfway up! Trott is gone, England are two down! An excellent review from Jayawardene, and the words "Abu Dhabi" are rapidly spooling across the frontal lobes of everyone watching. Yikes! 31/2
