    0.3 what a slice of luck for Anderson, shoved a length ball down the leg side but Dilshan's flick flew down to Bresnan who ran in to take the catch. So both captains depart to leg-side strangles, different styles admittedly 2/1
    1.4 he's gone! The shot that brought him so many of his 13,430 runs in one-day cricket - a scything cut - but this time it's gone straight into the hands of Morgan at point. No grand finish for Sanath, but he leaves the field to warm applause from the large crowd. Goodbye to a Sri Lankan legend. 6/2
    4.2 there's some swing! This might be the fullest ball Anderson has bowled today, and it's wobbled appreciably back in to beat the inside edge and ping Jayawardene's left pad ... the finger goes up, that's out! 14/3
    4.5 there goes another one! Full again from Anderson, a touch of swing and Sangakkara is too early into a straight drive, popping the ball straight back to the bowler, who holds the catch in his follow through. Two wickets in the over for Anderson, and Sri Lanka are tottering now. 15/4
    21.1 Dernbach replaces Anderson and strikes straight away! Short ball rushes onto Kandamby and the pull shot gets high on the bat and loops to mid-on. Dernbach celebrates with a Freddie-style arms-aloft pose, make of that what you will 69/8
    11.3 what a catch! Dernbach dug one in short and Mathews was quickly into the pull, but hit the ball in the air towards midwicket where Anderson went airborne, leaping to his right to complete the dismissal. Dernbach's first wicket in ODIs, and it's snapped what was just beginning to turn into a fightback from Sri Lanka 40/5
    16.3 another one down. This is ending in a hurry. Mendis edges down the wicket and chips a catch to short midwicket. Very easy indeed 57/6
    19.4 excellent work from Anderson. Two sharp short balls followed by a sucker full one, and with Kulasekara hanging back, he spoons it tamely to mid-on where Cook dives forward to take a good catch 65/7
    26.6 that's it! Kieswetter finishes things off with a swift stumping as Randiv gropes and misses outside off stump 121/10
    26.3 gone, finally. Malinga this time can't land one of his big leg-side clumps, instead a bit of drift finds a top edge that loops high towards point where Bopara holds the chance 121/9
