    7.6 gone! That was always going to happen. A horrid innings from the captain is ended when misses a pull against a ball that doesn't bounce much. Much deserved for Dilshan 29/1
    8.6 gone! Huge wicket for Sri Lanka as Bell chips a catch to midwicket. Was back of a length and Bell tried to force it through the leg side but didn't keep it down. Was a loose shot and a simple catch. Another start wasted from Bell. England wobbling. 31/2
    48.3 gone...Trott goes trying to clear the rope as a top edged a sweep is safely taken at deep square and he drags himself off the park 212/6
    26.6 gone! Muralitharan makes the breakthrough as Bopara is given lbw sweeping a very full delivery. Murali was round the wicket, it struck him full on the pad and was hitting middle. Bopara reviewed but it was stone dead 95/3
    42.6 gone! This time Sri Lanka take a catch and the Powerplay works for the bowling side again. Full outside off, Morgan tried to go over the covers but lofts a chancer to cover who takes it comfortably. Fine innings from Morgan, but England needed him to finish these 50 overs 186/4
    43.1 gone! That didn't last long. Swann goes for the reverse slog-sweep and is stone dead. He set himself so early the bowler hadn't delivered. England coming off the rails in the Powerplay again 186/5
