    28.3 attempts the sweep, playing across the line and hit on the front pad, Dar gives it - but Cook decides to review. Although you could see middle and leg stump this looked in line and Hawk Eye confirms as much, not much turn but it beat the pad and the impact was level with off stump, the decision stands and England's captain is gone, taking their review with him 131/2
    11.3 full ball on the stumps and chipped straight to midwicket. A very poor stroke, had the whole of the on side to play into and finds the man, Bell should be very disappointed, it was a poor delivery really, drifting into the pads on a full length to be whipped away but Bell has picked out the fielder 48/1

    41.6 full on the stumps, Trott sweeps and misses and is given out lbw straight away by Billy Bowden, it was too full to sweep really and looked pretty straight. Only things against the call would have been if it was sliding down but I doubt it, caught almost full on the boot 218/3
    45.3 slower ball on the stumps, 72mph, Root goes to play over the leg side, doesn't get hold of it and finally Sri Lanka hold a catch with Jayawardene clinging on to a simple chance at deep midwicket, bit of a top edge from Root but a fine innings played really well 249/4
    45.4 full on the off stump, played forward, a huge cry for lbw and given out! It was pad first but going across Morgan and was it going on to miss off stump? Bowden thought not. Very full and Morgan couldn't get the bat down on it in time 249/5
    46.2 driven at outside off stump, thin edge and taken by Sangakkara a good low catch going down to his left, Buttler walked and a second ball duck is a second failure in this competition. It wasn't right there to drive and Buttler got a little tickle on it trying to force into the covers 249/6

    47.5 full and straight and cleans Bresnan up as it tries to swing it down the ground and loses his leg stump, just missed a straight one there Bressy. It seemed to be in the slot to drive, Bresnan tried but made no connection 254/7

    2.2 goes big *shuts eyes* - oh, he's been caught at mid-on! Perera tried to execute the pick-up off a length over long-on, looked like he'd nailed it but the ball actually came off the toe of the bat and looped rather forlornly to Bopara, who crouched under it for a safe take and England's first wicket 10/1
    20.5 skip down the wicket and finds long on that is pretty silly you have to say, a thick inside edge, nowhere near enough contact on the stroke and Dilshan is gone. Three cheap overs from England, Dilshan has got frustrated, tried to take Swann into the stands and perished 102/2

    35.2 skips across to hooks but only manages to pick out deep square leg! England have the breakthrough they desperately needed, Anderson the bowler, as so often it is! The ball was short and outside the line of off, Jayawardene moved to his right but couldn't keep the shot down, Bairstow plunging forward to take a good catch 187/3
