Fall of wickets: 1-105 (Jonny Bairstow, 11.4 ov), 2-143 (Liam Livingstone, 15.1 ov), 3-148 (Sam Billings, 16.2 ov), 4-151 (Eoin Morgan, 16.6 ov), 5-162 (Dawid Malan, 18.3 ov), 6-162 (Moeen Ali, 18.5 ov)
16.2 to SW Billings, crashed high out to the leg side, but Chameera's slower ball does the job! A hoisted pull, but not quite timed, straight to the man at cow corner. The right option, but not his day today. 148/3
16.6 to EJG Morgan, into the toes, Morgan picks out deep backward square! Just the one fielder back on the rope, but that goes straight to Gunathilaka! He clings on well, keeps his feet inside the rope, and England have lost 3 for 8 in 12 balls!. 151/4
18.3 to DJ Malan, another slower ball, another strike! Malan attempts to take on the variation, but this one goes straight up in the air as he reaches for his drive. Outstanding innings though. He's given England a winning score you sense, to judge by Sri Lanka's efforts at Cardiff. But we'll see. 162/5
18.5 to MM Ali, hoisted to deep midwicket! Another slower ball, another miscued wallop across the line, big top-edge and good composure under the high ball. England have lost 5 for 19 in 23!. 162/6
15.1 to LS Livingstone, toe-ended to cover! Attempting to hit from in to out, but he can't time the low full toss, and picks out Shanaka.. 143/2
11.4 to JM Bairstow, plays around the yorker! Beat him on the full to be fair... just missed a full-bunger as he attempted a nibble off the legs into the leg side. A flat finish to a fine innings. But that's a platform and a half. 105/1

Fall of wickets: 1-4 (Danushka Gunathilaka, 0.2 ov), 2-23 (Kusal Perera, 3.6 ov), 3-29 (Kusal Mendis, 4.4 ov), 4-46 (Oshada Fernando, 8.1 ov), 5-61 (Dasun Shanaka, 11.2 ov), 6-64 (Niroshan Dickwella, 12.4 ov), 7-64 (Wanindu Hasaranga, 13.4 ov), 8-64 (Isuru Udana, 14.2 ov), 9-88 (Binura Fernando, 17.4 ov), 10-91 (Dushmantha Chameera, 18.5 ov)
0.2 to MD Gunathilaka, outside off, wafty nick! That's a terrible indecisive shot, too wide to drive, let alone glide with a cordon in place. Malan at second slip dives across first, clings on at the second attempt, and that was a shortlived knock!. 4/1
4.4 to BKG Mendis, huge appeal! Willey knew instantly, Bairstow wasn't so fussed, but the finger's gone up! Nip from a good length, climbing past a tentative edge ...Mendis reviews... if there's a spike it can be only one thing, and there is!. 29/3
14.2 to I Udana, banged in short, spiralling top-edge on the pull, Moeen is back on the rope and barely has to move! This is a turkey shoot. 64/8
3.6 to MDKJ Perera, slower ball, lobbed into the leg side, as Woakes finds some cut from back of a length, Livingstone reacts brilliantly in the deep, slides in to complete the take, and Sri Lanka are two-down. 23/2
13.4 to PWH de Silva, The slip is in business! Another curling delivery, kisses the edge, low carry thanks to the hard hands, and that's a rarity for a 14th over of a T20!. 64/7
8.1 to BOP Fernando, flapped to point, in the air so long that Rashid and Willey have time for a game of rock-paper-scissors to decide who takes it. Willey is the winner, and Fernando is the loser.... 46/4
12.4 to N Dickwella, hacked from a full length, straight to Jordan at mid-on. Another origami-thin dismissal to add to the list. A hint of swing to confound Dickwella's ambitions, but that was futile. 64/6
17.4 to B Fernando, bowled him! "Yeah boi!" is the cry on the stump mic, a cunning little top-spinner, skidding through an ungraceful wipe across the line, thuds into the leg bail to bring Sri Lanka ever closer to 3-0. 88/9
18.5 to PVD Chameera, nailed on the back foot, and that could be that! Umpire Saggers sticks up the finger, but Sri Lanka might as well review. He's very deep in his crease and the ball turned into the pads... no bat ... the suspense... is killing me... tick tock ... it's halftime in the football btw... and that is umpire's call on the top of middle stump!. 91/10
