Fall of wickets: 1-22 (Alastair Cook, 5.2 ov), 2-101 (Ian Bell, 20.4 ov), 3-104 (Eoin Morgan, 21.2 ov), 4-145 (Gary Ballance, 29.2 ov), 5-152 (Ravi Bopara, 31.2 ov), 6-193 (Joe Root, 35.3 ov)
5.2 to AN Cook, first breakthrough! Went after a wide delivery, he moved across his crease to try and reach it, well away from his body and thin edge through to Sangakkara. He hadn't been offered much width and his eyes lit up. 22/1
35.3 to JE Root, this time he's gone, goes down on on knee to sweep a back-of-the-hand slower ball and is taken on the knee roll. Having not advised Bopara to review he uses it himself but it's three reds. 193/6
20.4 to IR Bell, another slower ball, Bell sits back for it and swings leg side but swings it straight to short long leg where Malinga takes an easy catch. A poor dismissal from Bell's point of view not getting the elevation on a ball that was there to hit but he picked it up only as far as Malinga who only had his hat falling off to worry about in taking the catch. 101/2
21.2 to EJG Morgan, forward, then back, goes to cut and chops it on it was a ball flicked out of the front of the hand, went on with the angle from around the wicket and Morgan, rocking back to cut, has slashed it onto his middle stump and his promotion has failed. Probably too full a length to cut. 104/3
29.2 to GS Ballance, not enough distance this time! Ballance tried to heave this from outside off over one of the long boundaries, but it came off the bottom of the bat and Chandimal had plenty of time to steady under the catch at deep midwicket. 145/4
31.2 to RS Bopara, and that's gone as well! Went for the sweep and it struck him on the back leg. Only thing would have been outside the line and replays say it was! So a review would have saved Bopara, but he declined to use it.. 152/5

Fall of wickets: 1-0 (Lahiru Thirimanne, 0.5 ov), 2-19 (Kumar Sangakkara, 5.3 ov), 3-63 (Tillakaratne Dilshan, 14.1 ov), 4-88 (Mahela Jayawardene, 17.3 ov), 5-108 (Dinesh Chandimal, 20.3 ov), 6-108 (Nuwan Kulasekara, 20.6 ov), 7-114 (Angelo Mathews, 21.6 ov), 8-118 (Thisara Perera, 23.2 ov), 9-138 (Sachithra Senanayake, 26.3 ov), 10-144 (Lasith Malinga, 27.5 ov)
0.5 to HDRL Thirimanne, this now swings back in, much fuller, and beats the inside edge, huge cry for lbw and given out lbw it looked pretty good but Thirimanne reviews. He definitely hasn't hit it, is it too high? No. Hawk Eye has it taking a huge chunk of the bails and Sri Lanka lose an opener and a review. Classic Anderson, full and swinging and did for Thirimanne used to playing in Bangladesh recently. 0/1
5.3 to KC Sangakkara, full of length just outside off, Sangakkara pokes forward at it and drags it into his stumps and the pressure works for England. Poor stroke here, no foot movement at all from Sanakkara just looking to play it out on the off side, it shaped in a little and took a thick inside edge smack into middle and leg stumps. 19/2
26.3 to SMSM Senanayake, picks out long-on...Senanayake tried to send this length delivery into the stands but it didn't come out of the middle and it was a simple catch. 138/9
14.1 to TM Dilshan, full ball a foot outside off, Dilshan throws the kitchen sink at it having taken a few steps down the wicket and got a whirl of an outside edge to third man where Ballance holds a smart catch just in from the rope. A wild swipe from Dilshan, no control on that and perishes in the deep. 63/3
20.3 to LD Chandimal, he edges this one! Short of a length, Chandimal heaves across the line aiming for the leg side boundary but just gets a thin top edge. 108/5
20.6 to KMDN Kulasekara, and's falling away for Sri Lanka. The shorter delivery works again. Back of a length, Kulasekara heaves to the leg side and gets a massive top edge which goes straight up, giving Buttler plenty of time to trot around and take his second catch of the over. 108/6
27.5 to SL Malinga, all over! The slower ball does the trick. Malinga giving himself room outside leg stump and misses his wild swing. 144/10
17.3 to DPMD Jayawardene, massive wicket! He tries to flick this through midwicket again but this time can't keep the ball down and picks out Eoin Morgan. Perhaps played a fraction early. The change of line worked. Another example of Tredwell's calmness and cool thinking under pressure. 88/4
21.6 to AD Mathews, he can't get three reverse sweeps away, though! Terrific catch by Cook. It looped off the top edge, he got too far underneath it this time, but Cook still had to run backwards a fair distance from short third man and took a well-judged catch coming over his shoulder. 114/7
23.2 to NLTC Perera, another neat catch, this time Root at long-on. Perera swinging like a rusty gate, it was a length delivery, and he picked out the deep fielder with pretty good accuracy. 118/8
