Bresnan to Jayawardene, FOUR, top start that from Bresnan, shoved down the leg side, Jayawardene clips it easily and firmly away for four down to deep square


Bresnan to Jayawardene, no run, this one is outside off stump, and left alone


Bresnan to Jayawardene, 1 run, much better from Bresnan, back on to a line and length, Jayawardene pops forward and defends before stealing a quick single


Bresnan to Jayasuriya, no run, Jayasuriya keeps his first ball out easily enough, it was full and he jabs a bat down on it


Bresnan to Jayasuriya, 1 wide, Bresnan loses his line a fraction here, perhaps a touch of nerves telling, aimed down the leg side and left alone


Bresnan to Jayasuriya, no run, Bresnan back on line here, not much Jayasuriya can do, just stays in his crease and defends


Bresnan to Jayasuriya, 1 run, nicely played, simple, angles a back-of-a-length delivery into midwicket for an easy single

Sri Lanka 7/0   TT Bresnan 1-0-7-0

Bresnan to Jayawardene, 2 runs, oooh, almost the big scalp there for England. Pitched up from Bresnan and flayed without any timing, looping over the covers


Bresnan to Jayawardene, 1 run, Bresnan straight away drags his length back a fraction, Jayawardene coolly dabs it into the off side for a quick single


Bresnan to Dilshan, FOUR, haha, this doesn't look very pretty but it's mighty effective. Regulation length ball, mauled through midwicket, not much timing, but well enough to reach the cow-corner boundary


Bresnan to Dilshan, 1 run, back of a length this time, Dilshan thought about another big slog but in the end guides it away calmly down to third man


Bresnan to Jayawardene, 1 run, nicely done from Jayawardene, gets forward and pushes into the off side for one


Bresnan to Dilshan, OUT, gone this time! Well, Dilshan was playing a shot a ball, and it has not come off. Short again, he tried to hook it off the front foot, but only managed a looping top edge, Wright hustled in from the deep square boundary and dived forward to take a smart catch

TM Dilshan c Wright b Bresnan 9 (7m 8b 2x4 0x6) SR: 112.50

Sri Lanka 20/2   TT Bresnan 2-0-16-1

Bresnan to Sangakkara, FOUR, lovely shot from the captain, too short and too wide from Bresnan, Sangakkara languidly cuts it through point for four


Bresnan to Sangakkara, no run, much better line and length here, Sangakkara gets back and defends into the covers


Bresnan to Sangakkara, 1 run, touch too short and wide, Sangakkara opens the face and guides it down to third man for a single


Bresnan to Mathews, 1 run, Bresnan maintains his into-the-ribs approach, Mathews turns it into midwicket for a single


Bresnan to Sangakkara, 1 run, calmly played here, carefully pushed into a gap in the covers for a single


Bresnan to Mathews, 1 run, Mathews happy to work singles at the moment, this is arrowed a fraction too far down leg, and turned away for one down to deep square

Sri Lanka 38/3   TT Bresnan 3-0-24-1

Bresnan to Mathews, FOUR, very good this from Mathews, England have set four men on the leg side boundary, Bresnan lands another slower ball short one, Mathews skips inside the line and scythes past a diving point for four


Bresnan to Mathews, 2 runs, neatly played here, picked up the fuller ball well, and pushes it with soft hands straight of midwicket for a couple


Bresnan to Mathews, 1 wide, that will annoy Bresnan, gets this all wrong, short and miles down the leg side, bonus run for Sri Lanka


Bresnan to Mathews, 1 wide, oh dear, gets it wrong again, and England's super-discipline has momentarily lapsed, shoved down the leg side for another wide


Bresnan to Mathews, 2 runs, this is turning into a good over for Sri Lanka, shortish ball, Mathews nurdles it gently towards deep square leg, soft enough to collect a couple


Bresnan to Mathews, 1 wide, Bresnan has lost his line here, Mathews just moving around his crease enough to unsettle him, shoved down the leg side for another wide


Bresnan to Mathews, 2 runs, much better ball, full and straight, Mathews pushes it back down past the bowler, and collects a lung-busting couple


Bresnan to Mathews, 2 runs, very good from Mathews, he's played a lone hand here, fullish ball driven down the ground once more, timed well enough to collect a couple


Bresnan to Mathews, 2 runs, finally the over is done, and a very good over for Mathews and Sri Lanka, this is shorter and worked to deep square for a couple that brings up an excellent fifty

Sri Lanka 113/5   TT Bresnan 4-0-41-1
