    0.4 gone for a duck! Roy has popped this into the leg side and it's a simple catch to midwicket. The delivery was angling into the pads, Roy shaped to work it through the on side but the delivery stopped and it was far too early on it. Ideal start for Sri Lanka 0/1
    13.6 bowled him! And to be frank, it's a bit of a mercy killing for Bairstow, who's not been feeling it today. Feet stuck in the crease, stumps splattered, reward for Perera's persistence 72/2
    28.6 another leading edge, and caught at cover! That was coming, Root was tiring out there. Looking to tuck this delivery into the leg side, plays forward, closes the face and a simple catch lobs to the off side 140/3
    41.4 slower ball, Morgan chips a simple catch back to Malinga! Suckered by his own aggression, looking to be positive, but the ball just wasn't there for his stroke. A fine innings, albeit a disappointing end. He's set his side up for a very solid total 218/5
    36.5 tossed up, driven, outside edge, loops to point! Stokes misreads the googly, has a flash, and he's on his way rather tamely. Sri Lanka conjure up another timely breakthrough to keep themselves just about in touch 190/4
    45.3 bowled him! A huge blow for England's prospects, it was a pretty rank ball from Pradeep, a shin-high full-toss, but Buttler was too eager in his effort to pound him over midwicket, and the ball slipped under his swish into his stumps! 245/7
    41.5 slower-ball yorker, and Malinga is on a hat-trick! This is what experience offers you. Moeen was utterly bamboozled as the ball dipped late, underneath the toe of the bat, before biting off the pitch to wreck the stumps! The Slinger brings up his 500th international wicket in style! 218/6
    46.1 slower-ball yorker! Rapped on the pads as Woakes misses a sweep and that is very adjacent! Given not out, but Sri Lanka are reviewing ...it is leg-sided, but is it hitting leg...? It certainly is! Malinga is rolling out all the old hits! 249/8
    46.6 another yorker, and it's five for Malinga! He points to the name on his shirt, and little wonder! This has been a masterclass. Absolute perfection, as he dipped into Dawson's off stump, dropping so late in trajectory that there was no hope of laying bat on ball. You can't compete with those angles ... 254/9

    3.1 short, sharp and gone! Stone making an immediate impression. Terrific bouncer, excellent line on middle and leg, Dickwella has his gloves in front of his face and the balloons off them, giving Buttler a simple catch. Seven balls into Stone's career and it's officially 'exciting' 16/2
    0.6 got him! Well, that's an interesting first over...good length at off stump, hint of movement away, takes a thin outside edge through to Buttler. A golden duck for Tharanga 9/1
    4.4 dragged on! Sri Lanka in early trouble...back of a length outside off from Woakes, Chandimal looking to play off the back foot through the covers, takes a big inside edge down into the bottom of the stumps via his back leg 20/3
    15.6 picks out midwicket! Dawson drags down another one, Kusal goes back to pull but can't get it over Roy who jumps to hold a good catch above his head 74/5
    8.5 another one, and another gem from Woakes! Short of a length at off stump, makes him play, more seam movement, enough to take a thick outside edge and a comfortable catch to Buttler 31/4
