    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

    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

    1.4 big appeal and up goes the finger! Nothing fancy in that from Mathews, just a perfect wicket-to-wicket line, a bit of nip off the seam and a fat thump into a planted front pad. Off he goes! 3/1
    2.5 massive appeal, and Hales is gone too! In fact he is reviewing first, but if he hasn't hit this, then surely he's lbw! Fizzing line and length, met on the front pad by a late-arriving bat, and the ball flies off a combination of inside edge and pad-flap, straight to midwicket! Hales is utterly non-plussed, tied in knots by Lakmal's command of length! 7/2
    5.5 another inducker, and Root is all at sea for this one! A 77mph stump-splatterer, just ghosting in from outside off, inexorably inwards. Root plays back, plays round it, loses his off pole, and his relative slump in form continues... 17/3
    15.6 gone! And you can guess the mode of departure! Morgan has been threatening to play catching practice with the slips throughout his peculiar knock, and he finally departs, on the stroke of drinks, to that very stroke! A battling performance from the captain, with a handful of trademark drives down the ground. But he's at odds with himself at the moment ... 72/5
    8.2 good line and length, driven on the up with a hint of nibble off the deck, and Bairstow's tentative push is swallowed at point! 30/4
    42.3 what a catch! Buttler dragged the ball from outside off, aiming for the six over long-on, where Shanaka had to time his leap to perfection, and mind where he landed afterwards, to pull off a potential gamebreaker, He had just long enough to contemplate the enormity of that moment, too ... 220/7

    17.6 short outside off, Moeen opens up to cut... and chops on! Pradeep strikes again, a rather vapid stroke from Moeen, not quite wide enough as he flashed a wonky bat and got a thick inside down on to the woodwork. England are fast running out of back-up 82/6

    45.4 Willey finally makes contact but his attempted smear to leg ends up as a leading edge to deep extra cover! That might be a mercy ... but what is this? This looks dangerously close to a no-ball. I'd give him the benefit, but it's so tight... he's out! 235/8
