James Anderson803504.37293000
Ryan Sidebottom8.111932.32381020
5.5 to WU Tharanga, straight, Tharanga once more plays down the wrong line with not much foot movement, the ball finds a big gap between bat and pad and pins back the off stump. 22/1
9.2 to ST Jayasuriya, short, Jayasuriya pulls but gets cramped and can't keep it down, Swann sprints in from deep backward square leg and slides into the catch, taking it a couple of inches above the turf. 33/2
41.1 to CRD Fernando, yup ... Fernando swings at a shortish ball, had he middled it, it would have headed over midwicket ... he didn't and it looped softly off a top edge to Collingwood at point. 164/10
Stuart Broad802623.25322010
12.1 to DPMD Jayawardene, got him! Terrible shot from Jayawardene. A loosener from Broad, dropping it short and wide but Jayawardene flayed his bat at it without keeping it down, the ball flying straight to Paul Collingwood at point who took it comfortably at face height. 37/3
14.1 to KC Sangakkara, and he's walked! How extraordinary. Wide of the off stump, Sangakkara cut and missed, the ball flying through to Mustard who didn't appeal. And nor did Broad...but Sangakkara tucked his bat under his arm and marched off. A poor piece of cricket. It was the thinnest of edges, and no England player appealed, yet Sangakkara marched off to cause confused (albeit delighted) expressions from England's fielders. 42/4
Paul Collingwood703805.42211030
Graeme Swann1023443.40381100
22.4 to LPC Silva, what a stroke of fortune for Swann, and a neat piece of keeping from Mustard. Silva tried to sweep from outside the off stump, got a bottom edge onto his boot which flew to Mustard's right who stuck out his right paw to take a slick catch. 85/5
24.5 to J Mubarak, got him this time! Tossed up by Swann to invite him down the pitch, Mubarak is beaten by the lack of pace and succeeds only in chipping it straight back to the bowler. A soft wicket, but a very clever piece of bowling. 93/6
28.1 to MF Maharoof, another excellent return catch from Swann. Tossed up and Maharoof simply chipped it straight back to Swann who took it an inch or two from the ground. 106/7
40.1 to TM Dilshan, and he has his fourth wicket, Dilshan caught in two minds, and he scoops a half volley gently to Collingwood at midwicket. 164/9

Chaminda Vaas612013.33283010
2.1 to AN Cook, excellent ball, drawing Cook into a defensive poke but he never moved his feet. A full delivery outside his off-stump, it cut away at the last moment and the keeper took a comfortable catch to his left. 5/1
Farveez Maharoof1003433.40454020
5.2 to P Mustard, bowled him! Unlucky for Mustard who tried to pull but it wasn't quite short enough, and the ball rattled off his legs and bobbled onto his leg-stump. 23/2
9.1 to KP Pietersen, gone! That's the big one and he can't believe it. Swinging into Pietersen who played all around it, trying to whip it to leg, and it would've taken out his off stump. 44/3
11.1 to IR Bell, catch! A wonderful catch by Dilshan at backward point. Bell climbed into this shorter delivery and appeared to nail it off the back foot, cutting it with a crack of the bat but Dilshan dived to his right and grasped a very fine catch.. 47/4
Dilhara Fernando1013113.10422011
42.3 to GP Swann, he's bowled him! Goodnight Graeme. Full, straight and swinging back into Swann who tried to lift him over midwicket and was clean bowled. 147/8
Lasith Malinga7.513914.97274011
32.5 to RS Bopara, slower one right up in the blockhole, the speed did for Bopara and the ball hit right in front as he shaped to clip to leg. Kenny Rogers has no doubt and up goes the finger.. 107/7
Tillakaratne Dilshan30802.66110000
Sanath Jayasuriya1012322.30420010
27.2 to OA Shah, Shah's patience snaps, he gives Jayasuriya the change, misses, and the ball hits the top of his leg stump. He was so far down that he would have been stumped anyhow even if the ball had missed. 94/5
31.1 to PD Collingwood, what was in that drink?! Collingwood pushes forward to defend, the ball goes on with arm past the bat, and Asoka De Silva has his hand up in a flash. 101/6
