Commentary

Well, that was emphatic. Maharoof was the stand-out bowler today with 4 for 31 as Sri Lanka absolutely thumped England. Collingwood spoke before the game of England forgetting their routing last time they met at this ground - routed for 88, beaten by ten wickets - but here they've been beaten by another sizeable margin, this time 119 runs. Sri Lanka's plan went...to plan: Vaas was hardly used - he bowled five overs. Earlier, their batsmen negotiated a slow pitch well and were in control from the off. A sorry England now have much to do to pick themselves up and dust themselves down by Thursday. Do join us again then. In the meantime, thanks for following today, from me (Jenny), Martin and the Andrews.

The umpire could have, perhaps, referred that just to make sure... but he did it get it right in this instance

Dilshan to Sidebottom, OUT, Sangakkara is very confident immediately that he has whipped off the bails very quickly - Sidebootom's toe was in the air for only a shade of a second
