Did not bat:
Fall of wickets: 1-41 (Jos Buttler, 3.2 ov), 2-45 (Alex Hales, 3.5 ov), 3-60 (Eoin Morgan, 6.2 ov), 4-107 (Jason Roy, 10.6 ov), 5-145 (Moeen Ali, 14.2 ov), 6-173 (Joe Denly, 18.2 ov), 7-173 (Ben Stokes, 18.3 ov), 8-185 (Adil Rashid, 19.5 ov)
18.2 to JL Denly, takes pace off, does for Denly, who holes out to long-on! Malinga gets his man, but not before Denly had struck a few blows... Tried to hit straight but dragged across it, completely mistimed and this time the simple catch is taken. 173/6
18.3 to BA Stokes, Malinga hits! Low full toss does the job! Stokes' hard-scrabble stay is ended, he throws his head back, thinking he should have smacked that... but the dip and swerve sent the ball thudding into off stump. 173/7
3.2 to JC Buttler, tossed up, this spins a touch, Buttler drives off the back foot... but sends it straight to cover! A miscued effort, and he'll head off disappointed. 41/1
3.5 to AD Hales, grips and spins, Hales sweeps... trapped in front! And he doesn't review! That initially looked pretty plumb, though on second view it may have been sliding a touch leg side. Umpire Wimalasiri thought long and hard before raising his finger... Two in four balls for Aponso!. 45/2
19.5 to AU Rashid, poleaxed! Full and straight, Rashid clears the front leg but only manages a thick inside edge into his stumps! Udana strikes with the penultimate ball of the innings. 185/8
10.6 to JJ Roy, spinning away, wide of the stumps, Roy goes reaching for a cut... and Dickwella is convinced he's edged it! Roy reviews, but Ultra Edge has picked something up! Roy looks disgusted, but probably as much with the shot as the decision. 107/4
14.2 to MM Ali, bowled him! Slides this under the bat, Moeen heaves down the ground, misses and Dhananjaya hits! A neat cameo from Moeen but he's swung his last for tonight. 145/5

Fall of wickets: 1-7 (Kusal Mendis, 0.6 ov), 2-16 (Niroshan Dickwella, 2.5 ov), 3-49 (Dinesh Chandimal, 6.5 ov), 4-77 (Kamindu Mendis, 10.1 ov), 5-77 (Dhananjaya de Silva, 10.3 ov), 6-110 (Dasun Shanaka, 14.5 ov), 7-119 (Isuru Udana, 15.4 ov), 8-119 (Amila Aponso, 15.6 ov), 9-156 (Thisara Perera, 19.4 ov), 10-157 (Lasith Malinga, 19.6 ov)
0.6 to BKG Mendis, bowled him! And Denly strikes in his first over back! A violent slog across the line, perfect length, doesn't turn, doesn't need to turn, as the middle stump is pegged back. Scenes at the Premadasa!. 7/1
2.5 to N Dickwella, bowled him again! A near-replica of that first dismissal, Dickwella playing for the spin and just playing across the line as a result. Good flight and dip, pegging back off stump, and Denly has two!. 16/2
19.4 to NLTC Perera, low full toss, clobbered out to deep midwicket, and Denly has his third of a renaissance night! Probably his worst ball of the day, but it matters not. The end of a fine captain's knock, and it's all over bar the slogging. 156/9
19.6 to SL Malinga, Denly has four on his comeback! Full and straight, Malinga plays all round it, and that is a very comprehensive win!. 157/10
15.4 to I Udana, crashed to mid-off! Made room, tried to get under the ball, but scuffed his stroke straight to Stokes. That's another limp dismissal with Perera running out of allies. 119/7
15.6 to MA Aponso, yorker, nailed. Second ball, right in the blockhole, clatters the base of middle stump. England are nearly home. 119/8
6.5 to LD Chandimal, reverse sweep, times it well, but Hales saw him going, and snaffles the catch! There he was, lurking down at deep backward point, perhaps unnoticed against the crowd. But that's a big wicket for England. 49/3
10.1 to PHKD Mendis, tossed up, into the slot, spanked to deep midwicket! Mendis had a go, but got a fractional top-edge on his slog sweep, that's a timely breakthrough. 77/4
10.3 to DM de Silva, very full, raps the pads ... is that actually missing much! England are reviewing. It is leg-sided, but very adjacent... sure enough, it's taking out leg stump! Two in the over for Rashid, both of the set batsmen, England very much in command. 77/5
14.5 to MD Shanaka, full, straight, back goes the off stump! Sneaks the slower ball through Shanaka's wild slog, and that's a good riposte, albeit a pretty flimsy shot. 110/6
