    10.6 spinning away, wide of the stumps, Roy goes reaching for a cut... and Dickwella is convinced he's edged it! Roy reviews, but Ultra Edge has picked something up! Roy looks disgusted, but probably as much with the shot as the decision 107/4
    3.2 tossed up, this spins a touch, Buttler drives off the back foot... but sends it straight to cover! A miscued effort, and he'll head off disappointed 41/1
    3.5 grips and spins, Hales sweeps... trapped in front! And he doesn't review! That initially looked pretty plumb, though on second view it may have been sliding a touch leg side. Umpire Wimalasiri thought long and hard before raising his finger... Two in four balls for Aponso! 45/2
    6.2 another poor bit of running, and this does result in a wicket! Morgan reverse-swept in the air, didn't quite carry to short third man but there was then hesitation from the batsmen, with Roy halfway down... he eventually made up his mind, but by then Morgan was struggling, Sandakan collected the throw and hit the stumps from five yards! 60/3
    18.3 Malinga hits! Low full toss does the job! Stokes' hard-scrabble stay is ended, he throws his head back, thinking he should have smacked that... but the dip and swerve sent the ball thudding into off stump 173/7

    14.2 bowled him! Slides this under the bat, Moeen heaves down the ground, misses and Dhananjaya hits! A neat cameo from Moeen but he's swung his last for tonight 145/5
    18.2 takes pace off, does for Denly, who holes out to long-on! Malinga gets his man, but not before Denly had struck a few blows... Tried to hit straight but dragged across it, completely mistimed and this time the simple catch is taken 173/6
    19.5 poleaxed! Full and straight, Rashid clears the front leg but only manages a thick inside edge into his stumps! Udana strikes with the penultimate ball of the innings 185/8

    2.5 bowled him again! A near-replica of that first dismissal, Dickwella playing for the spin and just playing across the line as a result. Good flight and dip, pegging back off stump, and Denly has two! 16/2
    0.6 bowled him! And Denly strikes in his first over back! A violent slog across the line, perfect length, doesn't turn, doesn't need to turn, as the middle stump is pegged back. Scenes at the Premadasa! 7/1
    6.5 reverse sweep, times it well, but Hales saw him going, and snaffles the catch! There he was, lurking down at deep backward point, perhaps unnoticed against the crowd. But that's a big wicket for England 49/3
    10.3 very full, raps the pads ... is that actually missing much! England are reviewing. It is leg-sided, but very adjacent... sure enough, it's taking out leg stump! Two in the over for Rashid, both of the set batsmen, England very much in command 77/5
    10.1 tossed up, into the slot, spanked to deep midwicket! Mendis had a go, but got a fractional top-edge on his slog sweep, that's a timely breakthrough 77/4
    19.4 low full toss, clobbered out to deep midwicket, and Denly has his third of a renaissance night! Probably his worst ball of the day, but it matters not. The end of a fine captain's knock, and it's all over bar the slogging 156/9
    14.5 full, straight, back goes the off stump! Sneaks the slower ball through Shanaka's wild slog, and that's a good riposte, albeit a pretty flimsy shot 110/6
    15.4 crashed to mid-off! Made room, tried to get under the ball, but scuffed his stroke straight to Stokes. That's another limp dismissal with Perera running out of allies 119/7
    15.6 yorker, nailed. Second ball, right in the blockhole, clatters the base of middle stump. England are nearly home 119/8
    19.6 Denly has four on his comeback! Full and straight, Malinga plays all round it, and that is a very comprehensive win! 157/10
