Steve Harmison1005125.10343090
4.5 to ST Jayasuriya, Well I never. Short and wide outside off stump, slashed hard by Jayasuriya straight to the man two yards in on the deep cover boundary who barely had to move. Inspired field placing.. 23/1
28.2 to KC Sangakkara, around the wicket, steep bounce and it’s too good for Sangakkara who flashes high and hard and the ball arcs through to Jones.. 173/3
Kabir Ali1007707.70348322
Liam Plunkett906026.66206020
32.4 to TM Dilshan, straight, true and Plunkett gets the reward – the off-stump is pegged back. Dilshan was trying to make room for himself.. 196/4
43.5 to WPUJC Vaas, shaped to run the ball towards third man, possibly bounced a bit more than he expected, and a thickish edge straight to Jones. 250/7
Tim Bresnan805807.25165011
Jamie Dalrymple1004424.40292020
24.5 to WU Tharanga, Tharanga gives himself room and takes a few steps on the charge, only to find Solanki at extra-cover who takes a straightforward catch. A badly needed breakthrough for England.. 160/2
36.4 to DPMD Jayawardene, simplest return catch popped up and there’s no mistake made by the bowler who snaffles the leading edge. Jayawardene’s cross with himself, but he needn’t be – that’s been a lovely innings and he’s left his team in a strong position to hit the 300-mark.. 220/6
Vikram Solanki10909.0020010
Ian Bell201316.5052000
35.3 to RP Arnold, that's the end of that! Arnold attempts another cheeky dab and this time he ends up with a faint edge, Jones holds on well to a fairly hard chance - Sri Lanka five down. 214/5

Chaminda Vaas804505.62277000
Lasith Malinga9.406326.51296240
11.6 to ME Trescothick, hit with power, but at waist height and to cover. An important wicket for Sri Lanka, and one which had been coming for Malinga. England can’t afford to lose any momentum here, now. Ian Bell strides to the crease.. 77/1
48.4 to LE Plunkett, holed out to deep mid-off to end the match, although the contest was finished some time back. The delighted Sri Lankans leave the field to the whoops of their vocal supporters, but the stands are three-quarter empty as people have been drifting off for some time.. 285/10
Dilhara Fernando704726.71227100
12.6 to AN Cook, huge inside edge chopped on to his leg stump, and Cook departs, just 11 runs shy of what would have been his debut half-century. But more importantly there are two new men at the crease - they will need to play themselves in fast.. 85/2
47.1 to JWM Dalrymple, straight and Dalrymple aims a big hit but misses and the ball takes his middle and off stumps. Dalrymple departs, one of the few England players to have emerged from today – and this series – with any credit. 272/8
Farveez Maharoof1011011.0022001
Malinga Bandara1014324.30261010
28.2 to IR Bell, When you are down, things just always go against you … Bell hit the ball into the ground, it bounced up and struck Sangakkara on the chest, into his chin and and lobbed down onto the top of the stumps with Bell out of his ground. It’s hardly textbook wicketkeeping but it’s in the book and England are wobbling. 161/4
34.2 to VS Solanki, and that was the shot of a drunk at closing time. Came down the pitch for the big heave, missed it, and a more orthodox stumping for Sangakkara, who took the ball well low-down, with not a hint of chin. In fairness to Solanki, he was in a no-win situation. 178/5
Tillakaratne Dilshan1004624.60282000
27.6 to AJ Strauss, the pressure tells …Strauss tries to glance the ball down to third man and the ball runs off the face of the bat to a whooping Sangakkara. That’s a result of the previous overs as much as that delivery.. 161/3
39.5 to GO Jones, Jones briefly sparkled but he has holed out to Maharoof at long-on and it’s all over bar the shouting. 212/6
