Chris Woakes1006826.80276240
37.1 to TM Dilshan, top catch! No hundred for Dilshan. It was a length delivery, a slower ball in off-cutter mode, Dilshan was aiming to work it into the leg side and gets a fat leading edge which loops back down the pitch, but on the on side, and Woakes dives across from his follow through to hold the catch one-handed. 204/3
45.1 to NLTC Perera, length on the off stump, driven up over the infield is it? Cook running back takes the catch diving away from him, splendid take and another wicket falls, England really pegging things back here. No timing on the stroke and not enough power either to clear Cook running back from extra cover. 263/6
Harry Gurney1006606.60276060
James Tredwell1005225.20282200
42.5 to AD Mathews, another one high, high into the air but this time Stokes is under it and that's a fine catch. Barely a foot in from the long-on boundary, Stokes down on his knees almost has held on very well to a mighty steepler from Mathews who went too big once too often, not timed again and this time not enough club to get away with it. 253/4
42.6 to DPMD Jayawardene, this slips down the leg side, Jayawardene tickles at it and there's a big appeal for caught behind and given out! A second big wicket for England. This has come right off the face of the bat and Jos Buttler has pouched a very smart catch down the leg side. 253/5
Ben Stokes403609.00125130
Moeen Ali1006616.60246120
23.4 to KC Sangakkara, length ball, this turns off the straight and given out lbw! To the surprise of many and the batsman reviews after a quick chat with his partner. This gripped off middle and leg, turned to beat the outside edge and is going on to hit middle and off stump. Lovely delivery from Moeen, deceiving Sangakkara into aiming leg side, and a good decision from the umpire. 128/2

Dhammika Prasad5051110.20126110
23.4 to JC Buttler, back on a decent length, Buttler props forward and gets an inside edge which bounces and then cannons leg stump! Very bad time for England to lose another wicket. Buttler was trying to sort of angle this away but it came back on him a little and the inside edge found the outside edge of leg stump. 159/5
Tillakaratne Dilshan603315.50153010
6.1 to AN Cook, this time he is gone! Not reviewing. Spin breaks the stand. Round the wicket, skids on with the arm, Cook looking to work to the leg side and is taken low down on the front pad. 51/1
Ajantha Mendis905526.11233110
18.5 to EJG Morgan, Morgan forward just outside off pushing towards the covers and gets an inside edge onto his stumps! England lose another and are now in a bit of trouble. A gentle prod forward slightly away from his body and Morgan has dragged this on. 124/4
46.1 to JC Tredwell, Tredwell backs away looking for a cut and gets bowled losing the top of his middle stump. The delivery skidded on quicker than Tredwell could attempt the cut stroke and he missed. 286/9
Rangana Herath905826.44262400
39.5 to BA Stokes, that's pressure! He was find it hard to get the ball away, he was itching to come down the pitch, ends up yorking himself, plays over the ball and a neat take by Sangakkara. 243/7
42.3 to CR Woakes, tossed up, lures Woakes down the wicket, he's beaten and what a stumping! Herath deceived both batsman and keeper with a lovely flighted ball that pitched on middle and leg and turned across the off stump, Woakes played to leg, missed and fell out of his ground but then Sangakkara - who was headed down the leg side - darted his hands to his right to take the ball and whip off the bails, superb work behind the stumps, and a beauty of a delivery. 259/8
Thisara Perera9.114434.80322131
15.1 to IR Bell, decent length just outside off, Bell gets a thickish outside edge and is taken at slip! Breakthrough for Sri Lanka. Bell playing defensively to a ball that might have just left him slightly and edging at waist height for an easy chance that's comfortably taken at slip. 107/2
17.5 to JE Root, fuller length, Root driving at it and edging behind! Root's poor footwork the undoing of him once again. Pushed back, then drawn forward and he gets a feather edge to the keeper. 121/3
47.1 to RS Bopara, length ball, smashed high into the night, it has gone so far up, deep square comes in, Kusal Perera is the fielder, he's misjudged it slightly but dives forward and takes a blinder! A stunning catch to win the game. The ball hung up in the sky for an age and was exceptionally well held to end England's stubborn resistance. 292/10
Jeevan Mendis603415.66121100
30.6 to MM Ali, but now gone! Moeen propping forward and presenting a simple return catch for the bowler. Such a wonderful innings but this is a soft dismissal, too early on a little forward push and it's so easy for the bowler to take such an important wicket. 203/6
