    48.5 Cook falls trying to steal a bye. Sangakkara hit the stumps with his under-arm flick and it ends a very important innings for Cook. He gets a standing ovation and rightly so, he may not have been swift but England's other batsmen didn't allow him to be 232/6
    5.3 devious delivery. Slower ball on a full length, and Kieswetter is hoodwinked completely. A leading edge loops to mid-on, and that's the end of that 18/1
    9.2 oh dear, that's the end of that. Driven loosely, and in the air, possibly over-anxious about getting his run-rate moving. And that's scooped easily to mid-off 30/2
    19.5 Mendis does for Pietersen again! Great work from him this over. Googly here that Pietersen tries to sweep, the extra bounce finds a top edge that loops all the way to deep midwicket. Ends such a promising innings but the spinners have heaped pressure on England 79/3
    21.3 gone this time! Mendis spins one back in as Morgan shuffles back onto his stumps, he's hit on the pad to spark a huge appeal and Billy raises one crooked finger to send the batsman on his way. Another very valuable wicket for Sri Lanka 85/4
    36.6 Bell's struggle ends and Sri Lanka are well on top now! Banged in very short, Bell leant back and upper-cut straight to a gleeful third man 157/5
    49.1 ...and strikes with the first ball! Yorker swerves in, finds the inside-edge that cannons off the pad onto the stumps. Dot ball too. Pretty decent effort from Bresnan again, without his fifty stand with Cook England would be in even worse shape 234/7

    23.2 wide long-hop works the trick for Dernbach! He celebrates wildly but Jayawardene has given him this one. It was very wide and the drive was sliced straight to Morgan at point. Ends a wonderful innings from Jayawardene 133/2
    3.6 bowled 'im! Bresnan knocks back the off stump with a perfect length delivery that beats a loose defensive push. That was a great delivery, Dilshan's feet went nowhere and subtle movement took the ball past the bat 21/1

    36.5 a chipped drive flies towards short extra cover, where Eoin Morgan leaps to pluck the ball out of the air. There's the breakthrough! It's come against the run of play, and it may well be too late for England to change the course of this game, but Swann has given them some hope. Chandimal remains, however, and is looking really good 194/3
    42.4 beaten by one that doesn't turn! Kandamby's bat was hanging outside the line, the ball struck his front pad in line with the stumps and Nigel Llong raised his finger to send him on his way 230/4
