    3.6 gone! Reward for Sidebottom's excellent control this morning as he finds another away-swinger which leaves Tharanga at the very last moment, handing first slip a comfortable catch at waist height 7/1
    6.6 got him! A fine piece of bowling - the slower ball which Jayasuriya misread and attempted to chip over mid-off. Pietersen nearly made a complete cabbage of it, but took it face height at the second attempt 16/2
    41.4 short again, and pulled straight down the throat of deep square leg! That was a sucker punch - it was nothing more than a leg-stump long-hop, and could have done anywhere. Broad looks suitably sheepish, but that's a big wicket for England 158/5
    10.2 another one bites the dust! Banged in short, Jayawardene slashed hard outside off stump, but he got a fraction underneath the ball, and Stuart Broad at third man took a fine and fast catch. Problems mounting for Sri Lanka 20/3
    39.4 a wide bouncer and Silva uppercuts this down to third man. Bopara runs six or seven metres around the boundary to take an excellent running catch at a comfortable height 146/4
    42.6 perfect line and length, noticeably quicker as well, and Lokuarachchi was beaten all ends up as he aimed a flick to leg. Well bowled, and the umpire's finger was up with Shakoor Rana-esque speed. That was plumb 166/6

    46.2 full length, nearly a yorker, and that's the end of that. Dilshan went to mow a meadow, missed, and was bowled through his legs. Still, a useful little cameo 190/7
    49.1 good bowling. A well-directed yorker, Mubarak stepped across to use the pace and sweep through fine leg, but he missed it entirely and lost his middle stump 206/9
    47.4 a low inswinging full-toss, and Sidebottom strikes! That was an attempted yorker, overpitched and Vaas was onto it in a flash. But Pietersen at short midwicket had no need to move, and toppled over backwards as the ball thudded into his chest 195/8

    42.4 bowled him! Cook is furious with himself. Short of a length outside his off stump, Cook tries to cut this but it's too short and he chops it on. He swings his bat in utter disbelief 194/3
    5.5 slower, fuller and straighter, Mustard drives the ball right back to Malinga and the catch is at a perfect height ... no mistake there 30/1
    19.6 soft shot. He attempted to pull it but got a top-edge straight to Malinga at mid-off. An absolute waste of his wicket and he's rightly furious 84/2

    42.5 got him! Two in two for Fernando as Collingwood is trapped dead in front, and up goes the finger 194/4

    45.4 no slower-ball this time: that was Malinga at pace, reversing it back into Shah who was comprehensively beaten and his stumps flayed 208/5
