Sam Curran604607.66177100
Tom Curran807128.87145400
45.3 to LD Chandimal, another slower ball, well played from Curran, nailed his length, lured Chandimal into a biff through the leg side, but there was no pace to play with and Roy steadied himself well. 328/5
45.4 to NLTC Perera, flogged out to deep midwicket and Curran's on a hat-trick! Hard to quibble with the intent, but the timing of that wicket is terrible for Sri Lanka's prospects. Curran holds his nerve with the slower ball once again, tempting the cross-batted mow and getting his rewards from back of a length. 328/6
Moeen Ali805727.12134110
19.1 to S Samarawickrama, what's occurring here then? The umpires are taking another look at this... The off bail has been removed, but England aren't entirely sure how. Let's see, turn for Moeen, beats the bat as Samarawickrama goes back and plays across the line, clips the top of off stump and then rebounds off Buttler's gloves into the timbers again! The first contact was enough to dislodge the bail, though, so that's going to be out, bowled!. 137/1
25.4 to N Dickwella, gottim, a misbegotten hack and the top edge loops gently to backward point! Dickwella goes, and that's the wicket England will have wanted. Falls five short of a hundred, and he has to trudge disconsolately off the field. 168/2
Adil Rashid1005215.20292200
41.3 to MD Shanaka, there's the breakthrough! Absolutely as the captain ordered, Rashid tossed it up, it dipped invitingly on a good length, Shanaka climbed into a roundhouse mow over the leg side, Roy cleared his team-mates out of harm's way and swallowed the top edge at deep midwicket. 300/4
Liam Plunkett504418.8095110
38.2 to BKG Mendis, banged in short, high on the bat, Plunkett's extra bounce has forced the error at last! Stokes at deep midwicket steadies himself well and that's a vital moment against a rampant opponent. 270/3

Kasun Rajitha502114.20234000
0.6 to JJ Roy, cleaned him up! Rajitha yorks Roy, the ball smacking into off stump... The new ball just wobbled a touch, Roy brought his bat down on the wrong line, and it skipped past to clatter the timber. 4/1
Dushmantha Chameera602033.33262010
1.2 to AD Hales, gottim, finds the outside edge, superb diving catch at slip! The Sri Lanka players are running around going crazy! Chameera now strikes with his second ball, excellent line and a touch of away movement, Hales is caught on the crease and then caught by first slip, Mendis leaping to his left. 4/2
1.4 to JC Buttler, ANOTHER!! Buttler walks down... and steers an outside edge to the keeper! Chameera dragged his length down as the batsman advanced, again there was some nip away and Buttler walked into the trap, feathering through to Dickwella. This could get messy. 4/3
7.2 to JE Root, full, driven in the air, backward point snaps up the catch! They are going to check whether it carried, but the soft signal is out, which could be significant. Yep, taken low by Samarawickrama, but with both hands scooped under the ball. England are four down!. 28/4
Thisara Perera201809.0033000
Dhananjaya de Silva401814.50141100
21.1 to SM Curran, chipped down the ground... chipped straight to long-off! A gift of a wicket for Dhananjaya, and SL move closer to their consolation win. Curran shakes his head and wanders off. England are bobbing along, bobbing along on the bottom of the beautiful briny sea. 121/6
Akila Dananjaya6.101943.08231000
18.2 to MM Ali, a flat-footed swat, toe-ended to short cover. Moeen's battling effort is over, the DLS par score leaps from 190 to 223, and England's faint hopes are even fainter. Chandimal grates his elbows on the used wicket ends with a full-length dive - that's going to hurt - but not as much as it hurts England. 107/5
22.1 to BA Stokes, tossed up, Stokes goes downtown... but picks out long-on! England's last hope holes out and it really is a question of when rather than if. Just didn't get the connection he needed, Thisara steadied himself a few yards in from the rope and swallowed the catch. 122/7
24.2 to AU Rashid, bowled 'im! Rashid bamboozled, a legbreak goes straight through to hit the stumps! Not sure what Rashid was aiming for, played a half-hearted dab and then heard the death rattle. 129/8
26.1 to LE Plunkett, that's plumb, Plunkett is unable to pick the googly and here comes the rain too! Dananjaya bowled a short googly there and Plunkett stayed back in the crease to let the ball turn before he could cut it, but it turned in a fair bit and hit him right in front, on the right thigh. Plunkett reviews it, for some reason, and ball-tracking shows he has to go back. There was no way Plunkett would get the review going his way. But hello, it's raining heavily by the time the replays confirm that and Aleem Dar is running off the field with his finger raised. 132/9
