7.2 swing for Willey, straightens and takes the leading edge... and Roy grabs a blinder at backward point! He fair flew to his right to scoop up the chance, Perera trying to turn the ball off his body but closing the face fatally as it held its line. Willey leaps and roars and England, Yorkshire, Northampton, Surrey and, er, Durban have another! 50/2
    3.3 bit of awayswing, Gunathilaka reaches for the drive... and spoons to cover! Bairstow grabs it and tosses the ball skyward as England celebrate their breakthrough, bit of a waft from Gunathilaka, reaching for the ball as it left him and he picked out the fielder 27/1
    8.4 banged in short, Kusal goes to hook - but can only glove it through to Buttler! That wasn't his most skilful bit of work, done for pace and bounce, I think, and Rob Bailey's finger goes up straight away, Woakes is amongst them and England have hit back strongly 56/3
    25.3 this one is a connection, but not enough of one! Another sweep, flipping up and under to Woakes at backward square, who barely had to move as the ball plopped into his mitts! 120/4
    46.6 goes full, up towards the blockhole, Mathews plays to leg and gets a leading edge... safely taken at mid-off! Big wicket for England, Plunkett's second and another one pouched by Woakes running in from the boundary 266/8
    33.1 that'll do! A decent length to open his account, and a pumped-up Prasanna roundhouses a pull that isn't there for the shot, and wellies a miscue off the splice and straight back to the bowler 188/5
    34.4 full and wide, Tharanga chases it and nicks off! His strange return down the order continues to baffle, the ball was a bit too far away from him to drive and he only succeeded in squeezing an edge through to the keeper 197/6
    40.1 driven, straight to extra cover, excellent stop by Plunkett diving one-handed to his right... and Shanaka is stranded, no time to get back to the non-striker's end! That's not the way to start your final push, Shanaka was backing up a long way and by the time Mathews sent him back he was too far down, committed to the single that never materialised 225/7
    not out
    49.6 no... it's pitched up towards the blockhole and punched down the ground, they desperately try and come back for two but Lakmal is well short as the throw comes in and Woakes breaks the stumps 286/9
