  • Overs 1-50
  • Overs 51-100
  • Overs 101-150
0.1

Sidebottom to Vandort, no run, a beauty from Sidebottom first up! An absolute corker in fact, angling into Vandort before swinging away at the last minute

0.2

Sidebottom to Vandort, no run, and again this swings away from Vandort who tucks his bat inside the line

0.3

Sidebottom to Vandort, no run, straighter this time and it's punched back to the bowler

0.4

Sidebottom to Vandort, 2 runs, outside off stump and Vandort squirts this past gully down to third man

0.5

Sidebottom to Vandort, no run, good grief! That is literally unplayable, bouncing, swinging and seaming away from Vandort. A fast off-break to the left-hander and utterly frightening

0.6

Sidebottom to Vandort, no run, solidly behind it on the front foot

Sri Lanka 2/0   RJ Sidebottom 1-0-2-0
2.1

Sidebottom to Vandort, 2 runs, too straight from Sidebottom and it's clipped through midwicket

2.2

Sidebottom to Vandort, no run, not far away from his leg-stump here. Sidebottom's looking for that magic ball, on leg stump and swinging away from the left hander. In fact, nowhere near his leg stump - fired past his pads and Prior dives to his right to save

2.3

Sidebottom to Vandort, no run, inside edge onto his pad. Outside off this time and angling into the batsman who shuffles awkwardly to leg and edges it into his pads

2.4

Sidebottom to Vandort, no run, defended with greater conviction this time

2.5

Sidebottom to Vandort, no run, well wide of the off stump

2.6

Sidebottom to Vandort, 3 runs, a streaky, thick outside edge which bisects fourth slip and the first gully (somehow). Bopara chases it down well and probably loses a stone in sweat in the process

Sri Lanka 11/0   RJ Sidebottom 2-0-7-0
4.1

Sidebottom to Vandort, no run, wide enough to be left alone

4.2

Sidebottom to Vandort, 1 run, comfortably clipped off his hip

4.3

Sidebottom to Tharanga, no run, quick, bouncy ball outside the off stump which is (wisely) left alone

4.4

Sidebottom to Tharanga, no run, a waste, wide of the off stump

4.5

Sidebottom to Tharanga, no run, left alone on length as much as the wide line

4.6

Sidebottom to Tharanga, no run, yes, again wide enough to be left alone

Sri Lanka 13/0   RJ Sidebottom 3-0-8-0
6.1

Sidebottom to Tharanga, no run, left alone outside off

6.2

Sidebottom to Tharanga, no run, punched off the back foot back to the bowler

6.3

Sidebottom to Tharanga, no run, that's the line from Sidebottom, just outside the off stump and it straightens on the left hander who very nearly edges this

6.4

Sidebottom to Tharanga, no run, a fast but wide offbreak

6.5

Sidebottom to Tharanga, no run, a waste down the leg side

6.6

Sidebottom to Tharanga, no run, wide of the off stump and cutting and swinging wider

Sri Lanka 13/0   RJ Sidebottom 4-1-8-0
8.1

Sidebottom to Vandort, no run, nudged to leg

8.2

Sidebottom to Vandort, no run, better ball this time which holds its line on the left hander who is rapped high on the pad

8.3

Sidebottom to Vandort, 1 run, turned down to fine leg

8.4

Sidebottom to Tharanga, no run, again a poor line down the leg side which is nudged to midwicket

8.5

Sidebottom to Tharanga, FOUR, beautiful, classy stroke here - again to a full-pitched delivery. Punched past the sprinting Monty at mid-off who chases in vain

8.6

Sidebottom to Tharanga, 1 run, excellent cricket from Sri Lanka as Tharanga drops this out to cover and they sprint through for a single

Sri Lanka 32/0   RJ Sidebottom 5-1-14-0
10.1

Sidebottom to Vandort, OUT, a huge appeal from Sidebottom as Vandort is rapped on the pads. Rauf, the umpire, has a long look at it - and he's given him! Good grief he took his time, and it looked to be spearing down the leg side. And it looked to be a bit high, too.

MG Vandort lbw b Sidebottom 18 (48m 33b 2x4 0x6) SR: 54.54

10.2

Sidebottom to Sangakkara, no run, well wide of the off stump and left alone

10.3

Sidebottom to Sangakkara, no run, shorter this time. Kumar ducks

10.4

Sidebottom to Sangakkara, 1 leg bye, drifting down the leg side

10.5

Sidebottom to Tharanga, no run, a waste, wide of the off stump. He's just not making the batsmen play enough

10.6

Sidebottom to Tharanga, 1 wide, that is village from Sidebottom. Miles wide of the off stump, cutting and swinging wider still

10.6

Sidebottom to Tharanga, no run, left alone outside off

Sri Lanka 36/1   RJ Sidebottom 6-1-15-1
17.1

Sidebottom to Sangakkara, no run, good start. On off stump, and it's defended. Kumar wants to enjoy a guilt-free lunch

17.2

Sidebottom to Sangakkara, FOUR, useless delivery, whipped through midwicket with ease for four

17.3

Sidebottom to Sangakkara, 3 runs, oh what a stroke that is, sweetly driven on the up through the covers. Monty gives chase and hauls it in

17.4

Sidebottom to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, Jayawardene is forward, confidently, and defends with Boycott-like assurance

17.5

Sidebottom to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, a straight "up and down" delivery outside the off stump. Mahela ignores it

17.6

Sidebottom to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, turned to leg

Sri Lanka 71/2   RJ Sidebottom 7-1-22-1
38.1

Sidebottom to Sangakkara, no run, and this is left alone comfortably outside the off stump

38.2

Sidebottom to Sangakkara, no run, good delivery on a nice, tight line on off stump. Sangakkara gives it due respect

38.3

Sidebottom to Sangakkara, no run, clobbered to cover, he really threw his arms at it but found the fielder...and also didn't time it

38.4

Sidebottom to Sangakkara, no run, left alone outside off. Prior and the slips get rather excited

38.5

Sidebottom to Sangakkara, no run, clunked to cover. Too full, and easily driven

38.6

Sidebottom to Sangakkara, 1 leg bye, flicked off his pads down to fine leg

Sri Lanka 118/2   RJ Sidebottom 8-2-22-1
40.1

Sidebottom to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, left alone outside off

40.2

Sidebottom to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, a play and a miss, very nicely bowled - a tired stroke from Jayawardene. Angled across him, he went for a cover drive but was beaten by the length and ought to have punched that off the back foot

40.3

Sidebottom to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, touch wider this time, Jayawardene leaves it alone

40.4

Sidebottom to DPMD Jayawardene, FOUR, very wide of the off stump, Jayawardene flays it behind point for four. Not entirely convincing, but effective nonetheless

40.5

Sidebottom to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, better line, left alone

40.6

Sidebottom to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, and it's defended firmly to end the over

Sri Lanka 122/2   RJ Sidebottom 9-2-26-1
42.1

Sidebottom to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, a terrible delivery. Too short and pitching on his off stump, going wider with the angle. Awful

42.2

Sidebottom to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, again too wide, again left alone

42.3

Sidebottom to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, he's edging closer to that off stump, Sidebottom, but is failing to make Jayawardene play enough

42.4

Sidebottom to DPMD Jayawardene, 3 runs, he does play at his, and strokes it beautifully for three through the covers. Not am emphatic drive, just a checked stroke

42.5

Sidebottom to Sangakkara, 1 run, dropped out to the off side, Sangakkara immediately calls for a single and gets it. Excellent running and finally some urgency from Sri Lanka

42.6

Sidebottom to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, better delivery to end the over as Jayawardene defends

Sri Lanka 132/2   RJ Sidebottom 10-2-30-1
44.1

Sidebottom to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, outside off, left alone

44.2

Sidebottom to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, a good line this time which Jayawardene defends on the front foot

44.3

Sidebottom to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, down the leg side. Some wag shouts "catch it"

44.4

Sidebottom to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, on leg-stump and turned to midwicket. Sidebottom throws his head, and tonnage of hair, back in disgust at the batsman's cheek

44.5

Sidebottom to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, guided to cover

44.6

Sidebottom to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, good line but it's left alone

Sri Lanka 132/2   RJ Sidebottom 11-3-30-1
46.1

Sidebottom to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, wide of the off stump, angled across him and Sidebottom has a few choice words with the batsman for no apparent reason

46.2

Sidebottom to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, clumped to mid-off

46.3

Sidebottom to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, oh well bowled - this zips off the pitch and raps Jayawardene on the back pad. Beaten for pace and for inswing

46.4

Sidebottom to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, much too wide

46.5

Sidebottom to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, good length, good line on middle and it's blocked out

46.6

Sidebottom to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, defended to leg

Sri Lanka 132/3   RJ Sidebottom 12-4-30-1
48.1

Sidebottom to DPMD Jayawardene, 1 run, extra bounce, fended away behind square

48.2

Sidebottom to Silva, no run, squirted out to the off side. Good, testing line from Sidebottom

48.3

Sidebottom to Silva, no run, left alone outside off

48.4

Sidebottom to Silva, no run, a jaffa from Sidebottom! Silva thought it was going to hold its line but it cut away at the last moment, turning him around and beating him all ends up. A cracker

48.5

Sidebottom to Silva, no run, and this one is pushed across him, again he plays and misses

48.6

Sidebottom to Silva, no run, defended on the front foot

Sri Lanka 133/3   RJ Sidebottom 13-4-31-1
50.1

Sidebottom to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, wide of the off stump and left alone

50.5

52.3

Sidebottom to Silva, 1 run, turned off his pads down to Harmison at fine leg

52.4

Sidebottom to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, Jayawardene adjusts late to defend this off the back foot. Very well bowled

Sidebottom to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, on off stump. Jayawardene is compactly forward and defending

52.6

Sidebottom to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, too wide, Jayawardene refuses to drive

58.1

Sri Lanka 158/4   RJ Sidebottom 17-4-43-1
60.1

Sidebottom to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, a wideish delivery down off, not called wide, mind, even though Prior caught it in front of first slip

60.2

Sidebottom to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, much straighter, and a decent offering outside off

60.3

Sidebottom to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, outside off again, pushed to the covers this time

60.4

Sidebottom to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, outside off, Jayawardene launches into a would-be booming drive but is just a fraction too late on it, his bottom hand leaping up through the mistiming, the ball seeking out the cover fielder

80.2

Sidebottom to DPMD Jayawardene, 1 run, on his legs, turned through midwicket

80.3

Sidebottom to Dilshan, 2 leg byes, the first sign of swing with the new cherry but, unfortunately for England, it swings down the leg side and is helped on its way by the pad of Dilshan

80.4

Sidebottom to Dilshan, no run, half a shout from Sidebottom - perhaps three-quarters of a shout, in fact - as he finds more big inswing to the right hander, but it's clearly going down the leg side

80.5

Sidebottom to Dilshan, FOUR, more swing, and very close to bowling him there. The ball bent back markedly on Dilshan who clamped down on it at the last moment, inside edging it past his leg stump and down to fine-leg

80.6

Sidebottom to Dilshan, no run, what a jaffa - so good that it deserves an exclamation mark! A cracker, swinging and seaming back into Dilshan who is beaten all ends up, the ball missing his bat by an inch and flicking the top of his pad

82.3

82.4

Sidebottom to DPMD Jayawardene, 1 run, blocked out on the back foot

82.5

Sidebottom to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, going across, left alone to the keeper
