    1.3 well, you have to say that was coming. Lumb departs. Swinging across the line, the ball found a top edge that went high towards mid-off. Not a happy return for Lumb, still looks like Bell would have been a better option 3/1
    2.4 another unhappy return for an England opener. Kieswetter this time. Rushes down the wicket, swings hard without a hint of timing at it loops gently to mid-off. Good start from Sri Lanka! 12/2
    12.5 a wicket for Sanath, and it's a big one! Again Pietersen had backed right to leg, but this time Jayasuriya speared a much quicker one right at middle stump. KP was looking to run it down to third man and simply missed the ball 101/4
    11.3 finally, Sri Lanka get the breakthrough! Malinga slung down a short ball - perhaps surprising Morgan a little - and the pull shot flew out to deep square where Mahela Jayawardene sprinted to his right to hold it cleanly 95/3
    17.4 another wicket for Jayasuriya! He's defying age and infirmity here, darting one in at middle stump as, once again, Bopara gave himself acres of space moving to leg. Scratchy innings from him ... 125/6
    13.4 direct-hit, and Patel has been run-out! He was looking to run the ball past point, but hit the fielder. Inexplicably, he wandered out of his crease and was slow to get back as the throw came in. Lazy dismissal ... and Samit is utterly disconsolate as he walks off 102/5
    18.5 Wright aims down the ground, but he can't quite get the distance and Perera sets himself to take the catch at long-off 131/7
    19.5 yet another slower ball from Malinga, this one full outside off, and Woakes is into the shot much too soon. He was trying to swipe to long-on but got right under the ball, and Mathews held onto the swirling chance 136/8
    19.6 and still Broad can't get bat on it! They attempt to sneak another bye but this time Sangakkara throws straight to Malinga, who sprints back and runs Broad out by a distance 136/9
