    1.2 edged to the keeper! Quickish delivery but very wide and Chandimal didn't know whether to play or leave, edging to Buttler's right who took an easy catch 4/2
    0.3 gone! A shorter ball, Dilshan went for the pull but straight down deep square-leg's throat - who barely had to move a muscle! 3/1
    2.5 steps outside leg, tries to loft him over cover but finds a leaping Morgan who pulls it down smartly 15/3
    2.6 fuller ball, punched to mid-on and Thirimanne runs through for a single but is sent back. Hang on! Stokes has the ball and throws down the non-striker's stumps while flying midair, and Thirimanne is short! Brilliant from Stokes. 15/4

    12.6 another huge hit but he's skied it...and Stokes, steadying himself at deep midwicket, takes a good catch under pressure with a baying crowd for company! 95/5
    16.4 uppishly driven straight to Willey at mid-off! England fight back! 137/6
    18.3 catch it - what a catch from Root! Shanaka leant back and murdered this but uppishly, just to Root's left at mid-off, who flung himself high and to his left, two-handed, to pounch a stunner! 155/7
    18.6 bowled him! Jordan discovers his yorker when it most matters, and what a yorker too - demolishing middle-and-off 157/8
