    32.3 another review , has the Trott move worked? big appeal for lbw that Tucker upholds, slightly overpitched on middle, Paranavitana looks to defend down the track, he misses and is struck low on the front pad before it hits his bat, no doubt that was going on to hit, Paranavitana defiance is over 96/3
    4.2 wicket, a big one, a poor shot from Sangakkara, a nothing ball from Tremlett, short and wide, friendly stuff from Tremlett, and Sangakara chops that to Morgan at backward point, he could have smashed that anywhere he wanted 13/1
    22.3 I'd just been praising his drive, but now he's paid the price for having another go! Full, swinging away and edged, and Pietersen tumbles to his left at fourth slip to hold a quality catch. Now, can England use this breakthrough to get into Sri Lanka's middle order? 66/2
