    16.4 direct hit from backward point, Perera is well short! He was looking in good nick but Jason Roy has seen him off with an excellent bit of fielding, collecting and spinning to hit the stumps in the blink of an eye - and no need to even consult the third umpire. Bottom-edged cut down to Roy's left and he collected with his left hand, transferred to his right in one movement and then threw down the wicket. Guess it was Kusal's call but he'll be regretting it now 77/3
    6.3 big swish, flicks the edge, Buttler grabs it! Gunathilaka's merry thrash is over, maybe a little bit of extra pace from Plunkett, he wasn't really very near the line of the ball and got a big fat nick through to the keeper to give England their first wicket 39/1
    8.5 brings the ball back in, thumps the pads - and up goes the finger! Mendis never got going, seemingly unable to get to grips with the surface, played down the wrong line and he decides not to review, heading off for a nine-ball duck. Hawk-Eye has it just clipping the bails, so a tight call but would not have been overturned 47/2
    39.6 nudged to leg, Chandi sets off but there's never a run there - he's sold himself down the river, England have another run-out! He realised pretty quickly but had already taken several steps down the pitch, Roy again was the man to sprint in and his underarm to Buttler allowed plenty of time to finish the job 188/6
    32.5 gone! Down on one knee, attempted sweep, but Rashid's extra bounce takes the top-edge and lollipops to Plunkett at short backward square. A soft, soft dismissal from a man who was well set, in spite of his dodgy hamstring 159/4
    34.1 stunning catch! David Willey is so impressed with himself, he can only kneel on the sponsor's mat behind the bowler's head, grinning like a loon! A madcap wipe to a good-length ball, the chance spirals into the heavens, drops absolutely vertically at a rate of knots, and Willey sprints full length and skids his fingers underneath from mid-on as he all but collides with Alex Hales! 163/5
    not out
    40.4 bowled him, through the gap! Superb line from Willey, maybe a hint of movement back in as Maharoof comes half forward, pretty sloppy-looking push down the ground, bat away from the pad, the ball sneaks through and pop go the bails 191/7
