Fall of wickets: 1-5 (Alex Hales, 1.1 ov), 2-29 (Moeen Ali, 7.2 ov), 3-122 (Joe Root, 25.3 ov), 4-170 (James Taylor, 34.4 ov), 5-173 (Ravi Bopara, 35.3 ov), 6-203 (Jos Buttler, 42.4 ov), 7-219 (Ben Stokes, 44.6 ov), 8-238 (Chris Woakes, 47.3 ov), 9-245 (Chris Jordan, 48.1 ov), 10-265 (Eoin Morgan, 49.6 ov)
1.1 to AD Hales, big strike! Gets his line straighter, it's full outside off, Hales is tempted into having a drive and a thick outside flies at chest height to Jayawardene at slip. 5/1
7.2 to MM Ali, oh my! Moeen stepped out of his crease and had an almighty heave, he wasn't close to the pitch of the ball and it fell well short of him and spun away to beat the bat, the keeper had loads of time to make the stumping. Hang on, Sangakkara said there was an edge. Either way, that's out.. 29/2
35.3 to RS Bopara, back looking to force down the ground and it's through him! Onto Bopara faster than he was anticipating and he's lost his middle and off stumps. Like Root, a total misjudgment really, he exposed his stumps and the delivery ran on and through his stroke, might have kept a touch low. 173/5
49.6 to EJG Morgan, slog swept again but Morgan hasn't got this at all, it's gone straight up and Sangakkara runs out to take the catch. Good work from the keeper to run up the wicket to take that because it went a long way up. 265/10
25.3 to JE Root, stays leg side of this again, goes to drive again and gets bowled! The change works for Sri Lanka, Herath has struck with perhaps a quicker ball that Root has misjudged. He should have been playing much straighter but tried to slash it square and missed, losing his middle and off stumps, partnership broken. 122/3
42.4 to JC Buttler, down the wicket, goes in the air down the ground and picks out long-on. No where near enough club on that, bit of an inside edge and it was a straightforward chance to Jaywardene running a few yards to his left. A big wicket for Sri Lanka who have kept things very quiet since the batting Powerplay. 203/6
47.3 to CR Woakes, a very slow loopy delivery that Woakes tries to slap into the leg side and he's bowled, missing it by a mile really. Couldn't pick up the pace of the delivery, swung right across it and got cleaned up, Woakes has really struggled with spin this tour. 238/8
34.4 to JWA Taylor, down the wicket, aiming over the off side, gets it off the toe and squirts it to cover! A shame for Taylor who's missed out on a century on his return to the side but he's played very nicely indeed. Aiming over the off side here, trying to play in-to-out, didn't get it quite right, it looped to where cover was shuffling back and claimed an easy catch. 170/4
44.6 to BA Stokes, swept up into the leg side but gets it too high and not long enough, the catch taken by deep square running to his right. A firm strike off a middle and leg line but the timing not quite there, it was a big top edge really, and another wicket falls. 219/7
48.1 to CJ Jordan, waited for and cut hard straight to backward point! Rocking back to try and force this away through the off side, Jordan is early on the stroke and chipped it straight to the fielder who gleefully claimed an easy catch. 245/9

Fall of wickets: 1-28 (Tillakaratne Dilshan, 5.1 ov), 2-69 (Kusal Perera, 14.1 ov), 3-165 (Mahela Jayawardene, 31.2 ov), 4-214 (Kumar Sangakkara, 41.1 ov)
5.1 to TM Dilshan, massive blow! They've snaffled Dilshan. It was a short-of-a-length delivery which Dilshan tried to carve it away over the covers but only succeeded in getting a top edge which looped into the off side, where Morgan back-tracked well from inside the circle. 28/1
14.1 to MDKJ Perera, floated up just outside off, driven and edged to slip! Perera can change his gloves again now, driving a touch loosely at a ball just wide enough to entice the drive, it's turned just enough to take a thick outside edge and Jordan has held a sharp chance at slip, well bowled Moeen. 69/2
31.2 to DPMD Jayawardene, tries to play through the covers and drags this on! A desperately needed breakthrough for England. A lazy drive aiming through the off side and gets a thick inside edge into the ground and into the off stump. A seemingly gentle length ball a foot and a half wide of off stump has done for Jayawardene and maybe there's some hope for England. 165/3
41.1 to KC Sangakkara, oh goodness me. Long hop outside off and Sangakkara has belted it straight to deep cover! What a miserable way to go. Terrible delivery but Sangakkara has thrown the kitchen sink at it, pretty much nailed it too, only to perfectly pick out the off side scout who doesn't have to move in pouching the catch, game on?. 214/4
