    1.3 direct hit! An early wicket for England. Bairstow coming in from cover and gets the under-arm hit. He looks short as the bail pops out of the groove. Sharp work from England. The ball was dropped into the off side and, crucially, Perera had to divert a little to get around the bowler after coming through for the single 8/1
    23.2 tossed up and caught! Gunathilaka looked like he was playing for the googly, giving himself room to lift over the covers. But the legbreak cramped his shot, and Moeen in the covers sauntered round to take the catch 158/3
    19.4 tossed up, miscued ... caught! Too ambitious, as the bat face opened on impact, and Plunkett in the covers made excellent ground to scoop up a looping chance. The end of a very fine innings from Mendis, probably his best yet in internationals, but he was unlucky with the rain break. Not a lot of time to rediscover his timing with the overs reduction, and he paid the price for rushing against Rashid's accuracy 136/2
    36.4 takes leg stump! Trying another sweep, gets across his crease then misses the delivery. Willey on target. Important stand to break (and, again, before three figures) 245/4

    38.2 excellent from Willey! Gets his yorker in, this time it's dead straight, Prasanna swinging across the line 259/5

    37.5 no record for Roy! Moving to the leg side, he loses his shape on a heave across the line, defeated by a slower ball so a good piece of bowling as well 281/4
    3.4 nicked. Whoops. Gone. Another Moeen-esque dismissal, shades of Gower when it goes wrong. In the slot, a loose wristy drive, and another elegant edge to the keeper 18/1
    21.3 and there's the breakthrough! Root has given that away a bit...goes for the sweep and gets a gentle top edge which loops to short fine leg 167/2
    29.6 what a catch! A stunning grab. Will that spark Sri Lanka? Gunathilaka - who pulled off the good stop the ball before - has pulled off a screaming catch, full length to his right at backward point...he was horizontal when he took the catch. It was a short, wide ball. Morgan nailed his cut shot. But it was within Gunathilaka's grasp 221/3
