    22.5 pushed through, straightening on off into the front pad... and Reiffel gives it! Dickwella reviews, though it looks like a hopeful one. Yes, it's red-red-red on Hawk-Eye, Dickwella is a goner! Hit him on the arm, actually, but that's still lbw in the Laws. Nicely bowled, but he's basically missed sweeping a straight one, and having played the shot so well today 102/3
    4.2 edged, and gone! A nothing shot from Sadeera ... dangled outside off, feet were still very leg-sided of the poke, and Buttler does the rest 19/1
    18.5 timbaaaaaaaahhhhhh! Lovely bowling from Moeen, draws Chandimal out, spins through the gap and tonks off stump! Chandi completely foxed there; plenty of turn, would have been a straightforward stumping if it hadn't hit the wicket 89/2
    23.1 Rashid now hits the pads - that's plumb! Two in three balls for England, another failure for Kusal Mendis! Easy decision for umpire Hannibal, Mendis deep in the crease and jabbing across the line as it skidded at him, rapped on the knee roll in front of middle and leg 102/4
    34.2 gone, tickled through to the keeper! Curran strikes, just when Sri Lanka were looking to get going again. That's the problem when facing so many change-ups, when one zips through you can misjudge it... Dhananjaya was down the pitch and aiming to run one behind square, but only succeeded in nicking off 154/5
    42.1 chance for a run-out! A suicidal single, sent back, the shy is lobbed back to Woakes from short cover, and he's six inches short. What a shame for Shanaka, Sri Lanka, and this contest too. He was in the mood to set England something significant 212/6
    49.5 back over the wicket to the left-hander, panned up and over the leg side, Perera wants as many runs as possible and takes on Stokes' arm from the deep... it wasn't a contest ... but the end of a fine aggressive knock. He's given his team a chance 268/7

    15.4 legbreak this time, straightens on leg stump to hit the pad... Dickwella screeches an appeal, not given by umpire Hannibal but Sri Lanka review, and this is quickly proved to be a good call! Pitched in line, Roy missed with a flick, and he's been DRS-ed by Dananjaya's liquorice allsorts for the second innings running! 76/2
    9.1 gottim, Dickwella whips off the bails, and he knows straight away! They send the decision upstairs but it's clear that Hales has just leaned too far forward, his back foot is outside the crease - and that's the first wicket for Sri Lanka! Hales was drawn out by Dananjaya's first ball, beaten past the outside edge, and was then too slow in pushing his toe back over the line. Not the impression Hales was hoping to make 52/1
