View dismissal DPMD Jayawardene c Morgan b Swann 42 42 38 5 1 110.52
10.1 tossed up outside off, slapped towards midwicket and caught! Didn't get the placement right and the fielder runs in and takes a super catch diving forward low to the ground, big wicket for England 74/2
View dismissal TM Dilshan lbw b Finn 16 20 12 1 1 133.33
4.4 87.2 mph, got him, hit on the back pad and given! The ball came back at Dilshan, hitting him right in front, the only question was height - Finn doesn't get too many lbws off length deliveries - but it was good enough to convince Steve Davis 35/1
View dismissal KC Sangakkara*† c †Bairstow b Swann 13 22 12 1 0 108.33
10.2 55.1 mph, tossed up outside off again, edged and caught behind! A thin nick and England have two huge breakthroughs in a couple of balls. It was nicely floated up, Sangakkara pressed forward outside off and got a thin edge through to Bairstow. The batsman looked pretty unhappy but the umpire's finger went up quickly 74/3
View dismissal AD Mathews b Broad 28 24 19 3 1 147.36
15.4 87.3 mph, back of a length and dragged it on another double strike bringing England back into the innings again. Again the pull stroke was late and this is a bottom edge onto leg stump, another well-set man goes 126/5
View dismissal BMAJ Mendis c Bopara b Broad 18 21 13 2 1 138.46
15.3 88.0 mph, back of a length, pulled off high on the bat and taken by midwicket. It just skidded on a little bit, he was late on the pull stroke and chipped it not quite over Bopara's head who took a good catch retreating. England needed a wicket badly but that's a great little innings 126/4
View dismissal HDRL Thirimanne b Broad 13 17 7 1 1 185.71
18.5 75.5 mph, slower ball on the stump and a swing and a miss and out goes the off stump. Broad gets his man but damage done here. Was trying to go big over the leg side and missed by a distance 162/6

View dismissal LJ Wright c Dilshan b Malinga 12 10 11 1 1 109.09
2.3 74.0 mph, 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
View dismissal AD Hales lbw b Malinga 3 15 5 0 0 60.00
2.6 76.3 mph, 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
View dismissal JM Bairstow c Kulasekara b Malinga 2 1 2 0 0 100.00
2.5 75.2 mph, 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
View dismissal SR Patel b Malinga 67 65 48 8 2 139.58
18.5 87.3 mph, 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
View dismissal EJG Morgan lbw b Dananjaya 10 27 15 1 0 66.66
10.2 53.4 mph, 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
View dismissal RS Bopara b BMAJ Mendis 1 4 6 0 0 16.66
11.4 49.1 mph, 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
View dismissal JC Buttler c BAW Mendis b Malinga 8 8 7 0 0 114.28
13.4 85.3 mph, 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
View dismissal SCJ Broad* c Jayawardene b Dananjaya 1 2 2 0 0 50.00
14.1 53.1 mph, 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
View dismissal GP Swann b Kulasekara 34 22 20 4 1 170.00
19.2 80.0 mph, 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
