    5.3 gottim - chipped to mid-off running back! Out the back of the hand, Dickwella foxed as he goes up and over, doesn't manage to clear Woakes on the turn, though it's taken at the second attempt. England have their breakthrough, after an impish little knock from Dickwella 57/1
    12.2 oh dear... he's top-edged a full toss to square leg! Village all round, a dipping full toss from Rashid but Samarawickrama has only succeeded in flubbing it to the man on the edge of the ring, a good catch from Woakes with the ball dropping over his shoulder. Not a bad innings from Samarawickrama but he had got rather stuck 94/3
    6.2 slips in the googly, sneaks through to clip off stump! Big old barn door from Mendis, driving away from his body, and he's gone for a golden duck. He hangs around while the umpires confirm that Buttler's gloves had nothing to do with the dismissal, but the replays are clear 59/2
    20.4 gone, scooped awkwardly to short fine leg! Chandimal picks himself up, dusts himself off and walks from the field, the latest to be done by Curran's slower ball. A slightly bedraggled knock, on a very bedraggled day, but Sri Lanka do at least have a chance 150/8
    12.3 another first-baller! Thisara goes straight for the big shot but it's slogged straight up, and well taken on the run at long-on! Roy was the fielder, giving Rashid a third. Boom and bust for Thisara 94/4
    16.1 strikes immediately, the slower ball plinked to mid-on! More back-of-the-hand legerdemain from Curran, and Dhananjaya isn't up to it, swings a hasty blow to the leg side but can only loop it up to the man on the edge of the ring 110/5
    18.6 bowled 'im, the googly does it again! Shanaka's cameo wallop comes to an end, he was aiming down the ground again but played all around this one, bowled neck and crop as Rashid finishes with a four-for 138/6
    19.5 full toss outside off, sliced through backward point... and he's going to be in trouble trying to come back for two! Dananjaya is run out but a yard or two, good arm from Bairstow, SL lose their seventh wicket 146/7

    20.6 finishes with a back-of-the-hand slowie, another unsuccessful swipe from Aponso... Buttler misses with an underarm at the stumps, as Malinga charges down, but Curran grabs it and hits at the non-striker's end to effect the run-out! Excellent final over from Curran, just three runs conceded 150/9

    8.6 huge appeal, but there's no bat on that sweep as the ball slides down the leg side... but hang on, there's a review for lbw... seems optimistic! But hang on for a second time, it hit the back leg ... and it is hitting the leg stump! Fair play Dickwella, he was adamant! 80/3
    1.2 spanked to mid-off! A bonus wicket for Sri Lanka, Aponso was in the attack to target Roy's perceived frailty, but instead it's YJB with a loose wristy dink into Perera's bread-basket! 18/1
    3.5 bowled him! Root is suckered by the slider! Perhaps got too loose with the front-foot push, it would have been lbw had it not cannoned into the middle stump. England are two-down and making harder work of this than their run-rate implies... 34/2
