Steve Harmison1005235.20355080
4.6 to ST Jayasuriya, Harmison strikes! another short and wide delivery outside the off stump, hint of swing - once again Jayasuriya is tempted to go after it, ball kisses the outside edge and flies straight to Jones behind the stumps, big wicket that. 25/1
33.3 to TM Dilshan, Excellent catch! short ball outside off stump, nipping in a bit, Dilshan picks up the length quickly and cuts hard but fails to keep it down, Collingwood at backward point dives to his right and takes a stunner. 187/4
45.2 to WPUJC Vaas, Harmison once again drags it short and this time Vaas is trapped - ugly looking pull shot and the ball balloons up towards midwicket, Strauss calls for it and nicely settles under it. 227/7
Liam Plunkett703214.57242060
39.5 to CK Kapugedera, another one bites the dust! short delivery on the stumps, a fairly innocuous delivery, Kapugedera needlessly goes after it, ball clips the top-edge and steeples down to backward square leg, Pietersen manning the boundary there runs across to his right, times his dive to perfection and comes up with a stunning acrobatic catch, Sri Lanka six down. 207/6
Tim Bresnan914414.88335051
47.2 to SL Malinga, bowled'm! a harmless good length delivery on the middle and off stump line, Malinga makes room and has a go at it, not sure what he was aiming there, anyway he misses the target by a country mile and the ball crashes into the woodwork - Sri Lanka eight down. 236/8
Sajid Mahmood905716.33287023
48.4 to WU Tharanga, short ball, pitched outside the off stump and cutting in, Tharanga goes for the pull and once fails to connect properly, ball clips the top-edge and lobs up towards midwicket, easy catch held and a massive innings come to an end. 248/9
Paul Collingwood1012922.90330000
21.3 to DPMD Jayawardene, Two down! slower delivcery on the middle and leg stump, Jayawardene picks it up and tries to loft over the fielder at mid-off, completely mistimes it and ends up hitting in the air, simple catch to Strauss at mid-off, excellent change of pace from Collingwood does the trick!. 124/2
38.3 to RP Arnold, and that's the end of that! short of a good length delivery, pitched touch outside the off stump and shaping in ever-so-slightly, Arnold looking to steer it down to third man ends up with a faint edge and Jones holds on well to a hard chance.. 204/5

Chaminda Vaas803704.62274000
Lasith Malinga922632.88351010
15.1 to KP Pietersen, good length delivery on the middle and off stump line, Pietersen walks across and flicks it away in the air towards the midwicket region, Jayawardene there times his jump to perfection and plucks it out of thin air, an amazing one-handed effort. 65/3
45.3 to TT Bresnan, fulltoss on the stumps, Bresnan swing across the line, misses the target by a long way and the ball hits the base of the middle stump, crucial wicket this!. 208/7
47.5 to SI Mahmood, good length delivery, nothing special there, just a wicket to wicket delivery, Mahmood comes down the track and has a wild swing at it, a typical tail-enders slog, short story shorter - Mahmood misses and Malinga hits, as simple as that. 220/9
Dilhara Fernando805136.37277022
8.1 to AJ Strauss, and he strikes first ball! short of a good length delivery on the middle and off stump line, for a change the ball kept a touch low after hitting the deck, Strauss swings across the line and is beaten by the lack of bounce, ball clips the bottom edge and goes behind, Sangakkara dives across to his right and takes a good low catch. England one down. 31/1
10.3 to IR Bell, got'm! short of a good length delivery outside the off stump, nipped in a touch, apart from that it was a fairly harmless delivery, Bell drives away from his body, ball clips the inside edge and crashes into the stumps - England two down and in a spot of bother here. 44/2
16.3 to PD Collingwood, short of length delivery just outside off stump, nipping in off the wicket, Collingwood moves back to defend and is beaten for pace, ball hits him on the knee roll and he is trapped plumb in front, Collingwood beaten by the sharp movement and also by pace. 66/4
Muthiah Muralidaran1004714.70252000
46.3 to JWM Dalrymple, England's slump continues! flatter trajectory, pitched outside the off stump and turning in, Dalrymple goes down on one knee in an attempt to slog it over the midwicket fence but is bit early into the shot and the ball crashes into the stumps, the ball nicely gripped the surface and turned in slowly and Dalrymple was beaten by the lack of pace there , end of a good innings from the debutant. 214/8
Tillakaratne Dilshan602313.83170000
31.6 to ME Trescothick, Breakthrough! full length delivery angled in, Trescothick move across a long way exposing the stumps and goes for the sweep, gets beaten by the full length and ball hits the leg stump, ambitious shot from Trescothick brings his downfall!. 138/5
Sanath Jayasuriya904615.11252100
39.2 to GO Jones, another nail goes in! short ball on the stumps and Jones pulls it away towards deep midwicket, Kapugedera moves across quickly to his left and snaffles it cleanly, deliberately took on the fielder in the deep.. 172/6
