England tour of Sri Lanka, 2nd Test: Sri Lanka v England at Colombo (PSS), Apr 3-7, 2012
England won by 8 wickets
3,4,5,6,7 April 2012 (5-day match)
  • Overs 1-50
  • Overs 51-100
  • Overs 101-150

9.55: Five minutes to go. Angelo Mathews, talking to Atherton, says he will not bowl. We pretty much knew that. He doesn't see any point risking injury. Having said that, he needs to deliver better with the bat.

Kishore: "Eng is ready to play Samit Patel, who has just played his debut match and have not performed well, instead of Panesar who was better than Swann in their series against PAK. Eng are scared of their batting ability and there is no confidence."

Toss: Sri Lanka have won the toss and they will bat first. Tim Bresnan and Steven Finn are playing today for England. They're in for Panesar and Broad.

As for Sri Lanka, Angelo Mathews is in for Dinesh Chandimal. Welegedara was out injured anyway, so Dhammika Prasad replaces him.

The pitch has a covering of grass which holds the cracks together. The cracks will widen. It's a dry surface, looks like a result pitch.

Time to look at some mails.

Yash: "Dinesh Chandimal is too good a batsman and a future prospect to be dropped. I think Thirimanne could've been dropped to make way for Angelo Matthews. And in any case, I think Chandimal is a better batsman than not only Thirimanne but also Matthews and since Matthews is not going to bowl, I see no sense in dropping Chandimal."

Malcolm Hughes: "It's 22:20 here MST in Canada. It's great to see my great nephew Tim back in the England side. I have not met him since he was a 14 year old starting on his career, but have followed him throughout."

9.10am: Good morning and welcome to the coverage of the second and final Test. The teams head to Colombo, to the P Sara Oval. Alan Gardner will join us later.

I was quite startled to read yesterday that England last played a Test here 30 years ago! That was Sri Lanka's first ever Test. For more on that, read this. The toss should be on shortly. Andrew "Gnasher" McGlashan, no stranger to Sri Lanka, says the weather in Colombo is fine.

The players are warming up. Bresnan and Finn have been active in practice.

0.1

Anderson to Thirimanne, 1 run, runs straightaway for Sri Lanka as Anderson drifts on the pads, clipped behind square

3 slips in place

0.2

Anderson to Dilshan, no run, that's a good delivery from Anderson, on the stumps and has Dilshan defending rather awkwardly

0.3

0.4

Steve: "Mahela does a great job opening in ODIs and T20s, they should have given him a chance to open in tests as well and by pushing him up to open they could've included Matthews at the expence of Thirimanne rather than Chandimal. He may have played a couple of stupid shots but he still showed better batting ability than many of the batsmen last test and deserves a chance to develop a good tempermant in Tests."

4.5

Anderson to Dilshan, OUT, Anderson has the last laugh! He learns from his mistake after the two boundaries by holding the length back, more on a good length but Dilshan had to play at it, was forward and beside the line and he ended up getting an outside edge that travelled low to Prior's right

TM Dilshan c †Prior b Anderson 14 (19m 16b 3x4 0x6) SR: 87.50

4.6

Anderson to Sangakkara, OUT, Anderson's on a hat-trick!

    • DPMD Jayawardene 0 (0b)
    • ST Finn 3-1-6-0
    • JM Anderson 3-0-15-2

Anderson to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, keeps it outside the off stump and he safely leaves it alone

8.6

Anderson to Thirimanne, OUT, appeal for an lbw and he's given out! But Thirimanne has referred it, he's gone, not the wisest decision really padding up in front of the stumps, Anderson pitched that on middle and leg and got it to straighten from over the wicket, Thirimanne went a long way across and didn't offer a shot, exposed his leg stump and that was smashing the middle stump, there was a referral after the umpire Oxenford gave him out

12pm: A quite period for England after that wicket-burst but at the start of the day, had someone told them they'd be 82 for 3, they would have taken it. Anderson got his swing and length going for him to get those wickets. Finn too made the batsmen play with a probing line and looked like getting a wicket or two. The second session will be a test of patience for the Sri Lankan pair. They have started well so far. Samaraweera needs to extend support to his captain, who's got the burden of carrying the batting again. See you at 12.40.

Kishore: "the pitch always seems to look flat when the england spinners are bowling on it these days, but it looks like a carpet of knives when they're batting on it."

41.1

Finn to Samaraweera, no run, ouch! Flush on the helmet, Samaraweera misjudges the length and ducks, expects it to rise above his head, hits the helmet, nasty sound, he's a bit dazed, removes his helmet, concerned fielders crowd around, at least he's not floored on the pitch, he's on his feet but it will take him a few minutes to gather himself
