    3.2 big wicket! Jayawardene falls and he'll be disappointed with the shot. Just flirted at an away swinger outside off, could easily have left it but ended up edging to slip 10/2
    0.5 gone! Dilshan departs for a duck! Anderson pitched it up, the late swing found the edge and Kieswetter took the chance 1/1
    4.1 Chandimal over this time! Don't play England when the ball nips around! He was only half-forward when an inswinger clipped his front pad around the knee roll on off stump. Century followed by a duck for the 21-year-old 11/3
    43.4 there's the wicket! Sangakkara swings across the line and a leading edge loops up on the off side ... Morgan gets himself underneath it at backward point and takes the catch to end the innings 174/10
    8.3 all over for Kandamby! Didn't need to play it but was drawn into a little fence outside off with an open face, ended up guiding it to slip 20/4
    15.6 sweet relief! Randiv gloves a lifter down the leg side, and Broad's wait is over. It wasn't the most impressive piece of bowling ever seen, but he'll take a wicket any way he can get it. To his credit, he also immediately turned to appeal to the umpire as the ball landed in Kieswetter's gloves. He's smiling now 57/5
    31.3 great work from Bresnan! Key breakthrough! Short ball reared up and took the shoulder of Mathews' bat as he tried to turn it to leg, it looped back towards the bowler who ran in, dived and snaffled it with one-hand inches off the turf. Mathews demanded the third umpire took a second look but that only confirmed how good a catch it was 129/6
    39.3 Broad gets another and Kieswetter will be thrilled! Tough chance as Mendis slashed at a short ball, top edge flew through but Kieswetter jumped at just the right moment to cling on. Broad's luck must be changing because he has two wickets with two pretty ordinary deliveries today 155/7
    41.1 full, straight, Kulasekara is struck plumb in front and it's an easy decision for umpire Illingworth. Hmm, in fact replays suggest that wasn't as close as it looked at first, just clipping leg 163/8
    41.5 the middle stump is knocked out of the ground! Malinga backed to leg and swished at a full toss aimed at the base of middle, missing completely. Another wicket for Dernbach, and isn't he happy 163/9
