Chaminda Vaas36212423.4416318010
94.6 to MJ Hoggard, bowled'm! well disguised slower delivery, hint of in-swing and the ball ends up as a low fulltoss on the middle and off stump line, Hoggard is duped into the drive and is beaten comprehensively, ball crashes into the woodwork, Vaas finally gets one to his name - England four down. 329/4
133.5 to KP Pietersen, got'm! good length delivery on the middle and off stump line, this one straightened a bit after hitting the deck, Pietersen shuffles across looking to clip it away on leg side as he has done on numerous occasions, but this time he fails to connect and the ball hits the pad right in front of the stumps, loud appeal and up goes the finger. 502/5
Farveez Maharoof28412514.46124170214
85.3 to AN Cook, Gone! Pitched just outside off, on a length and shaping away. Cook goes for a expansive cut shot and is beaten by the bounce and edges it behind. 312/3
Nuwan Kulasekara2538903.5610412011
Muthiah Muralidaran481015833.2921516400
28.1 to AJ Strauss, got'm! tossed up delivery, pitched on middle and off and turning across the left-hander, Strauss pushes forward to defend, ball turns away just enough to kiss the outside edge, Jayawardene at first slip dives across to his left and takes a good low catch, Murali strikes on the stroke of lunch!. 86/1
62.5 to ME Trescothick, gone this time! almost the same line and length but bit slower on this occasion, turning right across the left-hander, Trescothick pushes forward to defend and the edge is produced, done in by the length and the turn, Jayawardene at first slip goes low down to his left and takes it inches away from the ground. 213/2
134.4 to PD Collingwood, got him! full and outside off and Collingwood goes back and is beaten by the lack of bounce. It fizzed fairly quickly as well and maybe, he should have gone forward.. 502/6

Matthew Hoggard1442741.92692002
2.1 to J Mubarak, Hoggard strikes early! good length delivery, pitched outside the off stump and swinging in, too good a delivery for Mubarak who plays down the wrong line and is trapped plumb in front, Sri Lanka one down. 0/1
6.6 to WU Tharanga, oh dear! good length delivery, pitched on middle and off and shaping back in late, Tharanga misjudges it completely, offers no shot and the ball hits the pad plumb in front of the stumps, easy one for the umpire.. 21/2
40.3 to MF Maharoof, Hoggard does it again! good length delviery on the middle and leg stump line, hint of swing, Maharoof looking to work it away on the leg side closes the face of the bat bit too early and the ball spoons back off the leading edge, Hoggard on his follow through dives across to his left and snaffles it cleanly - bowling change works for Flintoff - Sri Lanka seven down. 129/7
54.6 to WPUJC Vaas, gone! Short and well wide off the off stump and Vaas has a flash at it and it flies head high to Trescothick at the first slip and he takes it well. Good catch considering the pace it came to him. It was there to be hit, mind you, so really can't blame Vaas for trying a square-slash. The execution went awry.. 192/9
Andrew Flintoff17.325523.14838003
41.5 to DPMD Jayawardene, that's a jaffer! short of a good length delivery, pitched close to the off stump line and shaping away late, Jayawardene defends on the back-foot and the edge is produced, Jones makes no mistake - Sri Lanka eight down. 131/8
55.3 to KMDN Kulasekara, all over! got his man this time. Another snorter, and Kulasekara took his eyes off the ball, fended it off in an ungainly manner, and it took the glove and ballooned to slips. Sri Lanka are 359 runs behind. An emphatic performance from England.. 192/10
Liam Plunkett1105204.72447005
Sajid Mahmood1325033.84568000
22.6 to KC Sangakkara, got him! first Test wicket off his 12th ball. Pushed across the body and Sangakkara has a flash without reaching to the pitch of the ball and Trescothick swallows the chance at first slip. 81/3
24.4 to TT Samaraweera, Gone! full, fast and pitches on the off and middle line, nips back in off the seam and the batsman just falls over on the forward prod and is caught plumb in front!. 81/4
26.2 to CK Kapugedera, Got him! another one bites the dust. This is amazing stuff here. Full, swinging in and the young Chamara Kapugedara has no answer to that. He gets his left foot across and is beaten by the pace and the late swing as it crashes onto his pads. full swinging yorker length and Kapugedara is gone off his first ball in Test cricket. 85/6

Matthew Hoggard461111022.3922313001
4.3 to J Mubarak, it's that man Hoggard again! good length delivery, pitched close to the off stump line, this one shaped back in late, Mubarak drives away from his body, ball kisses the inside edge - crashes into the back-pad and rolls back onto the stumps, Sri Lanka one down - England need nine more!. 10/1
192.3 to KMDN Kulasekara, third time lucky! Hoggard once again bangs it in short and this time Kulasekara falls right into the trap, a nothing pull and the resultant top-edge flies down to deep midwicket and much to the delight of the England fans, Pietersen judges it to perfection, that's a crucial wicket!. 526/9
Andrew Flintoff511113122.5623715010
125.1 to DPMD Jayawardene, short of a good length delivery, pitched on middle and off stump line and drifting down the leg side, Jayawardene has a lazy poke at it in an attempt to tuck it down to fine leg, not sure if there was some glove involved - Jones dives across to his left and takes it cleanly, umpire Aleem Dar is convinced - end of an epic innings!. 371/6
139.1 to CK Kapugedera, Flintoff bangs it in short, pitched on middle and off stump line and angling in, Kapugedera has a lazy swing at it, ball clips the glove and spoons up behind the stumps, Jones nicely settles under it - Flintoff with the breakthrough, Sri Lanka seven down!. 405/7
Sajid Mahmood35511823.3715618010
99.5 to MF Maharoof, belive it or not, Maharoof has left the building! good length and touch wide outside the off stump, a relatively harmless delivery, Maharoof gets carried away and drives it in the air and straight to Pietersen at cover, finally a catch is held - Mahmood with the breakthrough.. 291/4
103.5 to TT Samaraweera, Mahmood strikes again! short of a good length delivery, close to the off stump line and the cut shot was never on, Samaraweera goes fencing outside the off stump and is beaten by the extra bounce, faint-edge and Jones gloves it comfortably, Sri Lanka five down!. 303/5
Liam Plunkett31108512.741469102
146.6 to TM Dilshan, Gone! got his man! on a length, around the off stump and shaping away off the seam. Dilshan had to play at it and he did but was beaten by the seam movement and the ball kisses the outside edge and goes straight into the waiting palms of Trescothick at first slip. Er... England take a catch!. 421/8
Paul Collingwood921601.77451012
Monty Panesar27104921.811332200
39.6 to WU Tharanga, Panesar strikes and the crowd goes wild! once again Panesar hits the perfect line and length, Tharanga who is deceived by the flight shuffles back and across to defend, thin edge and Jones holds on well to a fairly hard low catch, Panesar rewarded for some excellent spin bowling, Sri Lanka two down. 119/2
59.2 to KC Sangakkara, got him! the change of bowling worked! floated just outside off stump, drawing Sangakkara forward and it goes with the arm. Sangakkara ends up playing inside the line as he expected the ball to turn in and Jones accepts the feather-edge in delight. Panesar does his celebratory jig!. 178/3
