all over! The slower ball does the trick. Malinga giving himself room outside leg stump and misses his wild swing
A very efficient win for England by 81 runs on the D/L method. They constructed a good innings, despite having to restart after the rain, then defended it very well. Chris Jordan the star with bat and ball, but plenty of other good performances from the likes of Ian Bell, Gary Ballance and Harry Gurney. The early-season tonic England needed, but Sri Lanka can bounce back. It is only their second defeat in 20 matches, and both have been to England. I'll bring you news from the presentation shortly.
Angelo Mathews "It was a pretty poor performance, we were not up to the mark with the ball. It was an off day for them. A poor effort by the whole team. You can't control the weather, but we played some poor cricket. The wicket played pretty well. The confidence remains high, it's just one game."
Alastair Cook "It was very professional. Sometimes we though we had better of conditions and sometimes not. Everyone did well. Gary started really, we know what Jos can hit like and then Jordan as well. The lads played [Malinga] really well. Even the great bowlers can go the distance. That extra 30-runs made a big difference."
No surprises, the Man of the Match is Chris Jordan. "Just twisted by ankle a little but nothing serious. I enjoyed whacking the ball and bowling with some aggression. [The short ball] was something we spoke about after not finishing well the other night. It's nice to get one back on Malinga after the other night."
Well, that just about wraps things up from here. We'll be back on Sunday for the second match from Durham. Until then from Andrew McGlashan and Alex Winter it's goodbye and thanks for joining us.
strikes the back as he goes to pull, the ball scoots through
missed stumping to add to Buttler's list...Malinga head in the air, swinging to leg, and he should really have taken that
misses his swing to leg, takes the pad
slower ball, drifts into the batsman, takes a thick inside edge to the leg side
heaved down the ground to long-on
Jordan hobbling after that chase, he appeared to slip near the boundary. That would be an awful way to end such a fine evening
full outside off, powerfully driven past cover and wide of mid-off but Jordan is able to chase it down
full at the stumps, defended
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
that's a good delivery, full outside off, beats the edge
Free hit carries over
and he's overstepped again! This is careless. Takes a thick inside edge down to fine leg
So we have a free hit
lets himself down a little by overstepping, gets clubbed into midwicket
round the wicket, slower ball outside off, beats the outside edge
Harry Gurney back into the attack
takes the pad as he swings to leg
dropped in his followthrough, it was hammered back by Malinga and caught Bopara by surprise, although he did have his eyes on it. Good test for a dodgy finger
driven to deep cover
a full slower ball outside off, lofted into the off side and falls into space
short and angled into the pads, pulled backward of square and despite getting to the ball Anderson can't flick the ball back
driven firmly back and well fielded, diving to his left, by Bopara
Bopara back into the attack
nearly bowls him...Malinga goes well outside off stump, it's a length delivery, he misses his swing but the ball carries over the timber
