  Sri Lanka innings (50 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal WU Tharanga c Solanki b Dalrymple 60 105 80 5 0 75.00
24.5 Tharanga gives himself room and takes a few steps on the charge, only to find Solanki at extra-cover who takes a straightforward catch. A badly needed breakthrough for England. 160/2
View dismissal ST Jayasuriya c Dalrymple b Harmison 14 21 20 3 0 70.00
4.5 Well I never. Short and wide outside off stump, slashed hard by Jayasuriya straight to the man two yards in on the deep cover boundary who barely had to move. Inspired field placing. 23/1
View dismissal DPMD Jayawardene* c & b Dalrymple 100 155 83 9 0 120.48
36.4 simplest return catch popped up and there’s no mistake made by the bowler who snaffles the leading edge. Jayawardene’s cross with himself, but he needn’t be – that’s been a lovely innings and he’s left his team in a strong position to hit the 300-mark. 220/6
View dismissal KC Sangakkara c †Jones b Harmison 7 17 15 0 0 46.66
28.2 around the wicket, steep bounce and it’s too good for Sangakkara who flashes high and hard and the ball arcs through to Jones. 173/3
View dismissal TM Dilshan b Plunkett 7 37 11 1 0 63.63
32.4 straight, true and Plunkett gets the reward – the off-stump is pegged back. Dilshan was trying to make room for himself. 196/4
View dismissal RP Arnold c †Jones b Bell 7 10 7 0 0 100.00
35.3 that's the end of that! Arnold attempts another cheeky dab and this time he ends up with a faint edge, Jones holds on well to a fairly hard chance - Sri Lanka five down 214/5
MF Maharoof not out 58 58 50 5 2 116.00
View dismissal WPUJC Vaas c †Jones b Plunkett 7 23 15 0 0 46.66
43.5 shaped to run the ball towards third man, possibly bounced a bit more than he expected, and a thickish edge straight to Jones 250/7

  England innings (target: 319 runs from 50 overs) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal ME Trescothick c Bandara b Malinga 44 51 40 7 1 110.00
11.6 hit with power, but at waist height and to cover. An important wicket for Sri Lanka, and one which had been coming for Malinga. England can’t afford to lose any momentum here, now. Ian Bell strides to the crease. 77/1
View dismissal AN Cook b Fernando 39 56 38 8 0 102.63
12.6 huge inside edge chopped on to his leg stump, and Cook departs, just 11 runs shy of what would have been his debut half-century. But more importantly there are two new men at the crease - they will need to play themselves in fast. 85/2
View dismissal IR Bell st †Sangakkara b Bandara 30 66 48 1 0 62.50
28.2 When you are down, things just always go against you … Bell hit the ball into the ground, it bounced up and struck Sangakkara on the chest, into his chin and and lobbed down onto the top of the stumps with Bell out of his ground. It’s hardly textbook wicketkeeping but it’s in the book and England are wobbling 161/4
View dismissal AJ Strauss* c †Sangakkara b Dilshan 45 56 44 5 0 102.27
27.6 the pressure tells …Strauss tries to glance the ball down to third man and the ball runs off the face of the bat to a whooping Sangakkara. That’s a result of the previous overs as much as that delivery. 161/3
View dismissal VS Solanki st †Sangakkara b Bandara 10 21 18 0 0 55.55
34.2 and that was the shot of a drunk at closing time. Came down the pitch for the big heave, missed it, and a more orthodox stumping for Sangakkara, who took the ball well low-down, with not a hint of chin. In fairness to Solanki, he was in a no-win situation 178/5
View dismissal JWM Dalrymple b Fernando 33 73 49 1 0 67.34
47.1 straight and Dalrymple aims a big hit but misses and the ball takes his middle and off stumps. Dalrymple departs, one of the few England players to have emerged from today – and this series – with any credit 273/8
View dismissal GO Jones c Maharoof b Dilshan 23 17 20 1 1 115.00
39.5 Jones briefly sparkled but he has holed out to Maharoof at long-on and it’s all over bar the shouting 212/6
View dismissal TT Bresnan run out (Tharanga/†Sangakkara) 20 17 13 2 0 153.84
42.6 from Malinga, two runs, but a misfield opens the opportunity for a third. Sadly, only Bresnan sees it and by the time he realises that Dalrymple is impersonating a limpet, he’s stranded and Sangakkara gently lobs the ball into the stumps 241/7
View dismissal LE Plunkett c Jayawardene b Malinga 29 25 18 1 2 161.11
48.4 holed out to deep mid-off to end the match, although the contest was finished some time back. The delighted Sri Lankans leave the field to the whoops of their vocal supporters, but the stands are three-quarter empty as people have been drifting off for some time. 285/10
View dismissal Kabir Ali run out (Fernando) 0 2 1 0 0 0.00
47.2 from Fernando, Kabir Ali pushes into the off, Fernando scurries across, picks up, turns and throws down the stumps with Ali not even in the frame Ali trudges off to contemplate a dismal day … 0 for 77 from 10 overs and a first-ball duck. He’s probably got a parking ticket as well. 273/9
