    2.3 bit of width, slashed hard and straight to point! The ball was there to cut but Wright didn't manage to stay on top of it, still whacked it pretty hard though but Dilshan is just the guy you want the ball to fly to in such a situation and he snaps it up 16/1
    2.6 yorker, smashes Hales on the pad and gone! Three in the over for Malinga! It was full, fierce and practically growling as it reached Hales, who was almost knocked off his feet - Hawk Eye suggests it would have missed leg stump but there are no reprieves in this format and England are tumbling like nine pins 18/3
    2.5 well, there's no doubt about this one, slapped high into the night sky, all height and no trousers, the ball plopping safely into the hands of mid-off 18/2

    18.5 steps to leg and at last Patel misses and off stump is out of the ground. A rapid full toss, missed completely and Malinga has five wickets, what a performance 144/8
    10.2 goes for the reverse sweep misses and given out lbw. The key man goes and surely England's challenge is over, looked to be adjacent to leg stump, hit halfway up the front pad 73/4
    11.4 bowled him! Straight threw, didn't seem to do anything at all, Bopara so out of form totally deceived, skipped past him as he looked to play to leg...I think, stayed in the crease and paid the price 76/5
    13.4 short and pulled to long leg too quick and takes the top edge, straight down the throat of the fielder who doesn't have to move. Four wickets for Malinga, what an effort 91/6
    14.1 tossed up outside off, well struck but in range of extra cover, who juggles but takes the catch on the rebound. Everything going right for Sri Lanka. Tried to go up and over but didn't get it above the fielder's reach and it's claimed well, first spilled above his head but turns round and takes the simple chance 93/7

    19.2 full and straight, Swann misses again a nice little cameo but too little too late for England. Stepped to leg but a full, quick delivery finds leg stump 147/9
