View dismissal MG Vandort c Vaughan b Hoggard 8 41 22 1 0 36.36
9.1 a tame dismissal ... full and straight, Vandort plays a checked drive and the ball loops gently to Michael Vaughan at mid-on ... all he has to do is stand, wait and catch it which he does 29/2
View dismissal ST Jayasuriya c Pietersen b Sidebottom 10 12 12 2 0 83.33
2.5 a loose drive to a wide ball, Jayasuriya doesn't get remotely over the shot and he is excellently caught diving to his right by Kevin Pietersen at short cover. It was at a nice height but he had to react quickly. 11/1
View dismissal KC Sangakkara c Collingwood b Anderson 92 251 159 13 0 57.86
59.2 got him! Down the track from Sangakkara, trying to loft Anderson but he got a thick outside edge, the ball flying just wide of gully...but it's Collingwood lurking there, and he pulls off a cracker high to his right 186/9
View dismissal DPMD Jayawardene* c †Prior b Hoggard 1 23 12 0 0 8.33
13.1 and the drinks interval strikes ... Hoggard puts one on the spot, a sniff of away movement, Jayawardene nibbles and gets a thin but clear edge to Prior who takes a routine catch low to his right 40/3
View dismissal LPC Silva c †Prior b Hoggard 2 8 6 0 0 33.33
15.1 a snorter, on off stump with a hint of away movement off the seam, Silva has to play, gets a thin edge and a jubilant Prior hurls the ball to the heavens 42/4
View dismissal J Mubarak c †Prior b Hoggard 0 4 5 0 0 0.00
15.6 And another one! Again showing the virtues of line and length, the ball seams the other way, leaving the left hander, Mubarak nibbles - he had to play at it - and it's a third catch of the morning for Prior 42/5
View dismissal HAPW Jayawardene c Cook b Panesar 51 132 102 9 0 50.00
46.1 tossed up, Jayawardene prods the ball straight into the midriff of Cook at forward short leg ... he clings on using arms and stomach to gather the ball ... Jayawardene bangs his bat into his pads in frustration as Panesar embarks on a victory jig 148/6
View dismissal WPUJC Vaas b Panesar 12 25 22 2 0 54.54
52.3 he again steps back to attempt a cut, the ball rips out of the rough and clips the top of his off stump. It turned appreciably but he had been given a warning two balls earlier and he ignored it 180/7
View dismissal CRD Fernando c Vaughan b Panesar 0 15 11 0 0 0.00
56.6 pushed forward but he couldn't quite hide his bat behind the pad, the ball taking the edge and hands Vaughan, at gully, with a relatively easy chance - diving forward. And Sri Lanka are eight down 182/8
SL Malinga not out 1 14 7 0 0 14.28
View dismissal M Muralitharan run out (Bopara/Anderson) 1 3 1 0 0 100.00
59.4 Anderson to Malinga, pulled through midwicket - classic tailend ugliness there - and deep midwicket jogs around. But hold on, there's trouble here if the throw's on target - which it is! And that wraps up Sri Lanka's innings 188/10

View dismissal MP Vaughan* c Silva b Muralitharan 37 152 108 5 0 34.25
34.1 Murali strikes, Vaughan gets a thin edge into his pad as he tries to flick a flighted ball on leg stump into the on side, silly point takes a sharp catch and yells an appeal which Aleem Dar wastes no time in upholding. Vaughan lingers, possibly more in annoyance, before heading off 107/2
View dismissal IR Bell c Silva b Muralitharan 83 185 125 12 0 66.40
42.6 an outstanding catch from Silva at short midwicket, Bell looked to drive into the off side but got a thick inside edge, Silva dived a long way to his left and clung on 132/3
View dismissal KP Pietersen lbw b Muralitharan 31 74 57 6 0 54.38
52.3 gone! Wonderful bowling from Murali, tossing it up on middle stump - not leg, as per the previous two - and Pietersen again padded away but is rapped plumb in front of middle 170/4
View dismissal PD Collingwood b Muralitharan 45 203 121 3 0 37.19
88.4 that's the world record and it's so simple a dismissal ... Collingwood plays down the wrong line and the ball clips the top of middle and off stumps, sparking celebrations in the middle, dancing in the stands and firecrackers are set off all over the place. Somebody in the crowd has thought ahead and prepared a poster with Murali smiling above the numbers 709. You can't match his grin out there now, though. 266/8
View dismissal RS Bopara c †HAPW Jayawardene b Muralitharan 8 26 22 0 0 36.36
58.4 gone this time! Murali's level on 708 Test wickets with Shane Warne, as Bopara tried to turn it to leg but could only feather it to the wicketkeeper 182/5
View dismissal MJ Prior c Mubarak b Fernando 0 13 6 0 0 0.00

83.2 a big nick, Prasanna Jayawardene takes a good catch low down, Sidebottom stands his ground as he is uncertain if it carried, as he is entitled to ... the two officials chat and then Rauf raises his finger, for once without referring to the third umpire. The only doubt was if it carried as there was a thick edge, and replays show it was a clean take 242/7
View dismissal MJ Hoggard st †HAPW Jayawardene b Muralitharan 15 35 23 2 0 65.21
90.1 Hoggard plays a slow-motion sweep, the ball goes down the leg side and a smart take and stumping with Hoggard some way out of his ground. It's gone to the third umpire but there's no doubt in many people's minds ... Monty Panesar is on his way out even before the screen shows that it's been confirmed 272/9

50.6 what a catch! Anderson enticed him with a wider ball outside off, drawing him into a flowing drive. From a thick outside edge, the ball flew wide of Bell at first slip who dived to his left and clung on with two hand. A very fine catch indeed 166/2

126.5 top catch from Vaughan! On his legs, Sangakkara rather leant away to the off side while trying to whip it to leg. And Vaughan, at mid-on, dives forward and to his right to take a grass-skimming catch 426/7

124.5 and he's bowled him. Neither Collingwood or Prior first realised, before Prior pointed to the missing bail...but Jayawardene is standing his ground. Replays show that the ball swung back through a big gate, and just brushed the top of the off stump 423/6
