4.1 - APPEAL! Suranga Lakmal to Rory Burns. Short, outside off stump on the back foot hooking, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, by Dickwella, appeal made for Caught. A nippy bouncer from Lakmal, that takes Burns by surprise. Gets beaten for pace as he swipes at the ball, and there is a little appeal. Nothing from the umpire.

wicket: OUT! Bowled. Dilruwan Perera to Rory Burns. Off break length ball, off stump on the back foot driving, missed to. Clips the top of off! Dilruwan gives Sri Lanka the breakthrough. Burns goes right back to a delivery that wasn't that short. Not a lot of width to be playing through the offside either. A smidge of turn takes the ball past the outside edge to brush the off bail. Lovely bowling.
7.6 - FOUR! Dilruwan Perera to Jonny Bairstow. Off break half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep extra cover for 4 runs. Bairstow is underway first ball on his return. Overpitched, big stride, and driven sweetly through the vacant covers.

10.4 - FOUR! Malinda Pushpakumara to Keaton Jennings. Stock length ball, outside off stump on the front foot sweeping, well timed past fine leg for 4 runs. Jennings paddles this very fine, and the fielder that is there to protect the sweep shot is too square. Delicate touch for four.
wicket: OUT! Caught. Malinda Pushpakumara to Keaton Jennings. Stock length ball, outside off stump on the front foot glancing, inside edge to leg slip, by Silva. Short leg was moved to leg slip, and Jennings picks him out straight away. He pushes forward, and clips round the corner to give Roshen Silva some catching practice. It's like he didn't know he was there. Plucked with ease by the close in fielder. Sri Lanka have their second.

12.4 - FOUR! Malinda Pushpakumara to Joe Root. Stock ball half volley, outside off stump on the front foot sweeping, well timed past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Long reach from Root, and he swats this well in front of square. Fetched from outside off, and he nails it away for his first boundary.

Stock length ball, middle stump on the front foot defending, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, by Dickwella, appeal made for Caught. Ripper from Pushpakumara. Dip, spin, and bounce. Bairstow lunges forward, and there is a sound as the ball passes the bat. Sri Lanka think they've got him, but a shake of the head from the umpire. Instant review. The replays are clear. Nothing on UltraEdge. The bat actually hits the ground, which is why they thought there was an edge.

15.2 - FOUR! Lakshan Sandakan to Jonny Bairstow. Chinaman full toss, outside off stump on the front foot sweeping, well timed past deep backward square leg for 4 runs. Loose delivery from Sandakan. You will get them with a chinaman. Loops out a full toss, and Bairstow powerfully sweeps between the two deep fielders for four.
15.3 - FOUR! Lakshan Sandakan to Jonny Bairstow. Chinaman back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, well timed past deep point for 4 runs. Drags his length back, so Bairstow springs back in the crease himself. Firmly crunched through point, and once again it is struck too hard for the fielder to cut it off.

17.1 - FOUR! Lakshan Sandakan to Joe Root. Chinaman half volley, outside off stump on the front foot slog sweeping, well timed in the air under control past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Root wants a piece of the action. Goes with the spin, and heaves it away over wide mid on. Nicely struck.

Chinaman length ball, outside off stump on the back foot Late Cut, hit pad to short fine leg for 1 run, fielded by de Silva, appeal made for L.B.W. Both reviews chucked away by Sri Lanka. They really aren't good with DRS. Dickwella gets excited and convices his captain to take it. This delivery from Sandakan rags back from a long way outside off, but doesn't do enough. Cuts Root in half to clip the back pad, but he's struck outside the line of off stump.

An early wobble with the loss of Burns and Jennings inside the first hour, but Root and Bairstow have built a solid stand since then. Some turn and bounce there for the spinners, and Sri Lanka haven't bowled that badly. It's just been a good display of batting. If the hosts keep toiling away, they can expect some success in the afternoon.

No reviews left for Sri Lanka, so they can't do anything when the umpire shakes his head. Dilruwan gets one to spin sharply past the inside edge, and it looks like a close call. HawkEye says it is clipping the top of leg, so it would not have been reversed.

Fuller, and Bairstow is on the sweep. Huge appeal, but turned down yet again. Excellent call from the official. Replays has it bouncing over the top of the stumps.

wicket: OUT! Caught. Lakshan Sandakan to Joe Root. Chinaman half volley, off stump on the front foot slog sweeping, top edge in the air uncontrolled to square leg, by Gunathilaka. The England captain is not happy with this one. A very poor shot, throwing his wicket away. Sandakan chucks it up and invites the big shot, Root obliges. Tries that trusty slog-sweep, but totally miscues. Lobbed up for the man in the ring to run round and easily snaffle. Sri Lanka find a way through.

38.4 - APPEAL! Lakshan Sandakan to Ben Stokes. Chinaman length ball, middle stump on the back foot defending, hit pad to silly point for no runs, fielded by de Silva, appeal made for L.B.W. Stokes goes very deep in the crease, defends towards mid on, and is beaten by the spin. Pinned on the back leg, and Sri Lanka appeal like they know the raised finger is coming. Nothing from the umpire, and it's another superb decision. It's turning too far, and missing off stump.

40.6 - Lakshan Sandakan to Ben Stokes. Chinaman length ball, off stump on the front foot defending, to silly mid off for no runs, fielded by Sandakan. <br><br>Scratchy start from Stokes.

41.4 - APPEAL! Dilruwan Perera to Ben Stokes. Off break back of a length, middle stump on the back foot defending, hit pad to gully for no runs, fielded by de Silva, appeal made for L.B.W. Another tight call, and Stokes gets lucky this time. Sri Lanka are to blame for wasting their reviews early on. Gets squared up from the sharp spin away from him, and is struck on the back pad. Hit above the knee roll, and there is quite a bit of bounce in this track. Umpire must think it is going over, but HawkEye shows it crashing into off stump.
41.5 - Dilruwan Perera to Ben Stokes. Off break half volley, to leg on the front foot working, to mid on for 1 run, fielded by Lakmal.

43.3 - FOUR! Dilruwan Perera to Jonny Bairstow. Off break back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, well timed past deep cover for 4 runs. Not a great delivery. Dragged down, and loads of width available. Just three men on the offside, and one is at slip. Plenty of space for Bairstow to hit through.

44.6 - FOUR! Lakshan Sandakan to Ben Stokes. Chinaman back of a length, to leg on the back foot pulling, well timed past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Another filthy long hop. Stokes will take them all day. He jumps back in the crease, and shovels through mid wicket for another boundary.

More appeals coming the way of the umpire. Bairstow gets a good stride in here, and is able to get outside the line of off stump. Bouncing over the top of the stumps as well.

52.6 - APPEAL! Dilruwan Perera to Jonny Bairstow. Off break back of a length, down leg side on the back foot glancing, Play and Miss (Leg Side) to wicketkeeper for no runs, by Dickwella, appeal made for Caught. Shout for the catch down the legside, and are Sri Lanka unlucky again here? UltraEdge shows a murmur as the ball passes the bat. Couldn't have been anything else. Perhaps another blunder.

54.4 - SIX! Dilruwan Perera to Ben Stokes. Off break length ball, to leg down the track driving, well timed in the air under control over long on for 6 runs. Stokes makes that look so effortless.

54.5 - Dilruwan Perera to Ben Stokes. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, to cover for no runs, fielded by Gunathilaka.
54.6 - Dilruwan Perera to Ben Stokes. Off break half volley, off stump on the front foot pushing, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Perera. <br><br>That will be tea. A few spots of rain coming down as they walk off, but hopefully they will be back out. England take the afternoon as well. Bairstow has shown his credentials batting at three with a super little knock. Root was going well until a rush of blood saw him caught off a false shot. Stokes rode his luck early on, but is now looking much more comfortable at the crease. Sri Lanka haven't had much luck themselves across those two hours. They definitely could've had a few decisions go their way, and things could've looked a lot different. A good last session and the hosts can still change the momentum. Currently, though, it's all England.

60.5 - Dilruwan Perera to Ben Stokes. Off break half volley, to leg on the front foot flick, to fine leg for 2 runs, fielded by Sandakan. That will be fifty for Ben Stokes. Very scratchy early on, but flourishing now. He can be dangerous if he carries on for a few more hours.

64.1 - Lakshan Sandakan to Jonny Bairstow. Chinaman length ball, middle stump on the front foot sweeping, to fine leg for 1 run, fielded by Pushpakumara. Jonny Bairstow is pumped. What a knock on his return to the side. Seems like England have plenty of players to choose from. Everyone who is coming into the side is performing. Number three position solved?
64.2 - FOUR! Lakshan Sandakan to Ben Stokes. Chinaman back of a length, down leg side on the back foot pulling, well timed past deep backward square leg for 4 runs. Dreadful delivery. Sandakan drops short, and Stokes has all the time in the world to pick his spot. Walloped through backward square.

wicket: OUT! Caught. Lakshan Sandakan to Ben Stokes. Chinaman length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, outside edge to first slip, by de Silva. Lovely bowling! Stokes gets drawn forward, looks to nudge the ball through the offside for a single, and it flicks the outside edge on the way through to first slip. Done by the loop and flight, and Stokes is annoyed. Big score was there for the taking. Sri Lanka pick up another against the run of play.
64.6 - APPEAL! Lakshan Sandakan to Jos Buttler. Chinaman back of a length, middle stump on the back foot working, hit pad to silly point for no runs, fielded by de Silva, appeal made for L.B.W. Big shout first up to Buttler, but it's doing too much. Spinning a long way past leg stump.

66.5 - APPEAL! Lakshan Sandakan to Jonny Bairstow. Chinaman half volley, off stump on the front foot sweeping, hit pad to silly point for no runs, fielded by de Silva, appeal made for L.B.W. Sri Lanka so, so frustrated. Another sweep from Bairstow, but he doesn't connect on this occasion. Smashed into the front pad, and a shake of the head from the umpire. Guess work with the bounce and spin, but HawkEye shows all three reds on the replay. Those reviews are a precious thing.

67.6 - FOUR! Malinda Pushpakumara to Jonny Bairstow. Stock ball back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, well timed past deep backward point for 4 runs. Short, wide, and punished. Bairstow cuts with precision, and the man in the deep cannot get there in time.
68.1 - FOUR! Lakshan Sandakan to Jos Buttler. Chinaman back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, well timed past deep point for 4 runs. A gift from Buttler. He has room to free the arms, and slams it in front of point for another boundary.

wicket: OUT! Bowled. Lakshan Sandakan to Jonny Bairstow. Chinaman half volley, middle stump on the front foot slog sweeping, missed to. A tiring Bairstow goes for an ugly heave into the legside, and the ball spin past the inside edge to flatten the leg stump. Super bit of bowling from Sandakan, who has now chipped in with three-for. Bairstow has looked weary the last few overs. He goes off to a standing ovation and will get a deserved rest.

72.4 - Lakshan Sandakan to Moeen Ali. Chinaman length ball, off stump on the back foot defending, outside edge to wicketkeeper for no runs, dropped catch by Dickwella, fielded by de Silva. Put down. Brilliant from Sandakan, ripping this away to kiss the outside edge. It keeps low, and Dickwella cannot get the hands down in time to hang on. Tough chance, but he will feel he should be taking that.
72.5 - APPEAL! Lakshan Sandakan to Moeen Ali. Chinaman length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, by Dickwella, appeal made for Caught. Sri Lanka think he's nicked off again. Dickwella clings on this time, but not out given by the umpire. Bat on the ground the noise from Moeen's bat.

wicket: OUT! Caught & Bowled. Lakshan Sandakan to Jos Buttler. Googly back of a length, middle stump on the back foot driving, mis-timed back to bowler, by Sandakan. Thumped back to the bowler. Loose shot from Buttler. Sandakan nips in with his fourth. Sticks in the pitch slightly, which means Buttler is through the shot, and he dinks it back to the chinaman. Made the return catch look harder than it was. Went with two hands, but stuck in the left one. Sri Lanka having a good evening here.

Chinaman length ball, outside off stump on the front foot, Left to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Dickwella. <br><br>Can Sri Lanka keep this going and bundle England out for 300? That certainly would make this game interesting. Runs are to be had if you apply yourself.

77.2 - FOUR! Dilruwan Perera to Moeen Ali. Off break length ball, off stump on the front foot sweeping, well timed past deep square leg for 4 runs. Haven't seen the sweep from England for a while. Moeen whacks it out here, and hammers it to the square leg fence.

80.4 - FOUR! Dilruwan Perera to Moeen Ali. Off break half volley, off stump down the track driving, well timed in the air under control past long on for 4 runs. Gracefully skipped down the wicket, and a languid drive over mid on's head from Moeen. A delight to watch.

81.5 - FOUR! Malinda Pushpakumara to Ben Foakes. Stock ball back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. A touch too short, and Foakes is lightning quick in picking that up. Springs back, and swats this through the legside.
81.6 - FOUR! Malinda Pushpakumara to Ben Foakes. Stock ball half volley, middle stump on the front foot sweeping, well timed past deep square leg for 4 runs. Back to back! Foakes is now down on one knee, and belts it away to the square leg fence.

82.2 - Dilruwan Perera to Moeen Ali. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, outside edge to first slip for no runs, dropped catch by Karunaratne. Lapse in concentration from first slip. Towards the end of the day, and Dimuth snatches at this. He should be expecting the edge with the ball ragging away from the left hander. They don't come much easier than that at that position. Popped straight out the hands.
82.3 - Dilruwan Perera to Moeen Ali. Off break half volley, middle stump on the front foot flick, to short mid wicket for no runs, fielded by Gunathilaka.
82.4 - Dilruwan Perera to Moeen Ali. Off break length ball, off stump on the front foot defending, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Dickwella.

82.6 - APPEAL! OUT changed by umpire to NOT OUT after REFERRAL. Dilruwan Perera to Moeen Ali. Off break length ball, off stump on the front foot defending, bat-pad to for no runs, appeal made for L.B.W. Finally Sri Lanka see the finger go up, but how's your luck? The review reverses that decision in England's favour! Skidded on with the arm after a few rippers before that. Moeen gets beaten past the inside edge, and it looked pretty plumb. HawkEye says it is missing leg stump, though! Nothing going their way at the moment.
wicket: OUT! Caught. Malinda Pushpakumara to Ben Foakes. Stock ball back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, outside edge to wicketkeeper, by Dickwella. Gone this time, and Foakes walks straight off. Flings the bat out, the ball skids on again, and cramps the cut shot. A little feather through to Dickwella, who snaps it up comfortably. Sri Lanka having a very good session now. They're into the bowlers.

85.6 - APPEAL! Malinda Pushpakumara to Adil Rashid. Stock length ball, middle stump on the front foot defending, hit pad to gully for no runs, fielded by Mathews, appeal made for L.B.W. Asking a lot here. No turn from Pushpakumara, so the ball will be missing leg stump by a distance.
86.1 - Dilruwan Perera to Moeen Ali. Off break length ball, down leg side on the front foot glancing, hit pad to short fine leg for 1 run, fielded by de Silva.
86.2 - Dilruwan Perera to Adil Rashid. Off break length ball, to leg on the back foot defending, Gloved to short leg for no runs, fielded by Mendis.

87.5 - FOUR! Suranga Lakmal to Adil Rashid. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot flick, well timed past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. That's tasty. A wristy whip from outside off to the legside. The follow-through is glorious. Top shot.
87.6 - Suranga Lakmal to Adil Rashid. Length ball, off stump on the back foot working, to deep backward square leg for 2 runs, fielded by Pushpakumara.
88.1 - APPEAL! OUT changed by umpire to NOT OUT after REFERRAL. Dilruwan Perera to Moeen Ali. Off break length ball, off stump on the front foot defending, hit pad to for no runs, appeal made for L.B.W. Up goes the finger, and Moeen reviews instantly for a second time. Prods forward, beaten on the inside edge, and it looks very adjacent. Dilruwan is tight on the no-ball, but the third umpire gives him the benefit. UltraEdge comes up, and shows a little tickle of an inside edge. Overturned, and Moeen somehow survives again.<br><br>After all that waiting around, the umpires have said it has got too dark. Sri Lanka have had a good evening, but the day belongs to England overall. Jonny Bairstow takes the headlines for wonderful century, and you would say cementing his spot at number three. Joe Root and Ben Stokes chipped in with decent knocks as well to help the visitors along. They were then pegged back after tea with a lovely spell from Lakshan Sandakan, but the honours will go to the away side today.
88.2 - Dilruwan Perera to Moeen Ali. Off break yorker, to leg down the track pushing, to long on for 1 run, fielded by Lakmal. <br><br>Welcome to day two in Colombo. With first innings runs on the board, England edged out the opening day. A similar wicket to Pallekele at the SSC, plenty of turn and bounce for the spinners, so you would expect this to be about a par score so far. Difficult for new batsmen, but runs are to be had with application. Sri Lanka were a little unlucky yesterday, with not many decisions going their way, and some sloppy fielding costing them. Things could've been very different if they kept their reviews till the right moment. A big morning session coming up. The away side will want to rack up a few more runs before getting to bowling, and the hosts need these three remaining wickets as soon as possible. Hopefully the action will be just as entertaining as it was yesterday.

88.6 - FOUR! Dilruwan Perera to Adil Rashid. Off break half volley, to leg on the front foot sweeping, well timed past fine leg for 4 runs. Swept into the ground, and he gets the ball to bounce over leg slip's head, and away to the fine leg boundary.

89.2 - FOUR! Suranga Lakmal to Moeen Ali. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep cover for 4 runs. Beauty from Moeen. Flowing cover drive, all loosey goosey, and it races away for his first boundary of the day.
89.3 - Suranga Lakmal to Moeen Ali. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, to deep backward point for 1 run, fielded by Pushpakumara.
89.4 - Suranga Lakmal to Adil Rashid. Length ball, outside off stump on the back foot defending, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Lakmal.

89.6 - FOUR! Suranga Lakmal to Moeen Ali. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep extra cover for 4 runs. In the air, but into the gap at extra cover. Moeen drives on the up once again, and strikes sweetly.
90.1 - Dilruwan Perera to Adil Rashid. Off break length ball, down leg side on the front foot working, to short fine leg for 1 run, fielded by Pushpakumara.

wicket: OUT! Caught. Dilruwan Perera to Moeen Ali. Off break length ball, off stump down the track driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to long off, by Mathews. Soft way to go for Moeen. He's an attacking player, but there's all sorts of risk in playing this. He shimmies down the wicket, doesn't get to the pitch, but goes through with the big shot. Attempts to launch it out the park, but mis-hits, and it loops down to long off for a simple catch.
90.6 - Dilruwan Perera to Stuart Broad. Off break half volley, to leg on the front foot defending, to short extra cover for no runs, fielded by Gunathilaka.
91.1 - Lakshan Sandakan to Adil Rashid. Chinaman half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to mid off for 1 run, fielded by Karunaratne.
wicket: OUT! Bowled. Lakshan Sandakan to Stuart Broad. Chinaman yorker, to leg on the front foot sweeping, Play and Miss (Leg Side) to. Five for Lakshan Sandakan. Broad doesn't last too long on his return to the side. Gets across the crease, looking to paddle the ball fine, but doesn't get any wood on it. Too full for the sweep, and the ball slides underneath the bat to smash into the stumps. England's tail not wagging this time.
91.3 - Lakshan Sandakan to Jack Leach. Googly half volley, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, inside edge to fine leg for 1 run, fielded by Mathews.
91.4 - Lakshan Sandakan to Adil Rashid. Chinaman back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pushing, to extra cover for 1 run, fielded by Sandakan.

wicket: OUT! Caught. Dilruwan Perera to Jack Leach. Off break half volley, outside off stump down the track driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to long off, by Mathews. England clearly wanted a bit of a slog and get to bowling quickly. Leach saunters out the crease now, looking to clear the infield, but he totally cloths it. Mathews tracks back from mid off, and takes it comfortably over the shoulder.<br><br>Decent first innings total on the board. Sri Lanka's reply is crucial. They need to get into a lead to make this game interesting. The response is coming up very shortly.

0.5 - FOUR! Stuart Broad to Danushka Gunathilaka. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control past deep cover for 4 runs.

2.6 - Stuart Broad to Dimuth Karunaratne. Length ball, off stump on the front foot, shoulders arms to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Foakes. <br><br>Solid start from the Sri Lankan openers. They need to give the rest of the line up some confidence with a steady partnership here.

4.2 - FOUR! Stuart Broad to Dimuth Karunaratne. Seaming away length ball, middle stump no foot movement pushing, outside edge past third man for 4 runs, dropped catch by Root. England may rue that. It's the England captain who puts it down at first slip. Lovely bowling from Broad, getting it in the perfect line and length with some movement off the deck. Dimuth pokes out with hard hands, and the edge flies quickly to Root. Late to react, and it ends up hitting him on the right wrist.
4.3 - Stuart Broad to Dimuth Karunaratne. Length ball, down leg side on the front foot working, to short mid wicket for no runs, fielded by Jennings.

5.1 - APPEAL! Jack Leach to Danushka Gunathilaka. Stock length ball, off stump on the front foot defending, bat-pad to gully for no runs, fielded by Stokes, appeal made for L.B.W. Leach on his own in the shout, and good reason for that too. A woody noise, and replays shows a massive inside edge into the pad.

7.6 - Jack Leach to Dimuth Karunaratne. Stock length ball, down leg side on the back foot working, to short leg for no runs, fielded by Jennings. <br><br>Sri Lanka taking a very different approach to England with the bat. Much more cautious, but solid in defence.

wicket: OUT! Caught. Jack Leach to Danushka Gunathilaka. Stock ball half volley, off stump down the track driving, inside edge to short leg, by Jennings. Keaton Jennings with some short leg wizardry. He bags another ridiculous catch. Gunathilaka looks to unleash an almighty blow. He runs out, the ball spins and comes off the inner half of the bat. Jennings was walking down with the batsman, ready to pounce, and he traps it between the midriff and arms!

They quickly whipped out the last three England wickets, then got to work with the bat. Gunathilaka the only man to fall, but that was due to another fabulous take from Jennings at short leg, that he had no right to catch. The visitors had there opportunities to take more, though. Root dropped Karunaratne early on, and the opener has looked very scratchy throughout. However, he is still there, and with Dhananjaya, have got Sri Lanka a nice base to build on. Important afternoon coming up.

46.4 - APPEAL! Ben Stokes to Dhananjaya de Silva. Length ball, off stump on the front foot flick, hit pad to gully for no runs, fielded by Buttler, appeal made for L.B.W. Wide of the crease, angled in, and Stokes nips it past the inside edge to smash into the pads. Stokes pleading with the umpire, but it looks like it is just sliding down. HawkEye says it's grazing leg stump.

wicket: OUT! Caught. Adil Rashid to Dhananjaya de Silva. Leg spinner half volley, middle stump on the front foot working, to short leg, fielded by Jennings. Rashid gives England the breakthrough! Jennings snaps it up at short leg once again. Dhananjaya turns this full delivery off the pads, and it pops up off the face of the bat to offer the chance. Jennings isn't dropping anything at the moment, and his reactions are brilliant. Stays low, follows the ball, and plucks it smartly. Ends a quality innings, and even better partnership.

50.6 - Ben Stokes to Kusal Mendis. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Stokes. <br><br>Sri Lanka are making England's total look below par. Another excellent session with the bat for the hosts. Dimuth still going strong, and Dhananjaya played a good hand before he was snaffled at bat-pad. Just 153 runs behind now, and they can make a good dent in that in the evening as well. England haven't been at their best in the field, or with the ball. They need a good final session to claw their way back.

wicket: OUT! Caught. Adil Rashid to Dimuth Karunaratne. Leg spinner length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, bat-pad to short leg, by Jennings. Rashid doing the business for England. Jennings' easiest take of the lot. Dimuth plops forward, undone by the sharp turn, and gets a thick inside edge onto the pad. Spoons up to short leg, and England have a couple of fresh faces at the crease now. Is the momentum turning back to the visitors?
52.1 - FOUR! Ben Stokes to Kusal Mendis. Back of a length, down leg side on the back foot pushing, thick edge past deep backward point for 4 runs. A touch streaky from Mendis. A tentative prod away from the body, and the ball runs off the outer half through backward point.

52.5 - FOUR! Ben Stokes to Angelo Mathews. Short, down leg side on the back foot pulling, well timed past fine leg for 4 runs. Round the wicket, field set, and Mathews knows what is coming. Doesn't matter that it is his first delivery, he goes after it, and controls a pull to the fine leg fence.
52.6 - Ben Stokes to Angelo Mathews. Length ball, off stump on the back foot glancing, Play and Miss (Leg Side) to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Foakes.
53.1 - APPEAL! Adil Rashid to Kusal Mendis. Leg spinner length ball, down leg side on the back foot defending, hit pad to third man for 3 runs, fielded by Broad, appeal made for L.B.W. Quality leg spin bowling from Rashid. Squares up Mendis to clips the back thigh, but no chance of LBW here. Pitching outside leg, and spinning past off stump.

wicket: OUT! Caught. Ben Stokes to Angelo Mathews. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, bottom edge to wicketkeeper, by Foakes. The short ball tactic works for Stokes! Banged into the pitch, Mathews wants to take it on, but it sticks in the pitch, and he's through the shot way too early. The ball flicks the toe of the bat, and loops through to Foakes. The keeper has to dive forward, and just manages to get the fingers underneath. Double strike for England after tea.

wicket: OUT! Caught. Adil Rashid to Roshen Silva. Googly half volley, outside off stump on the front foot defending, inside edge to short leg, by Jennings. How is Jennings doing this? Everything that comes his way melts into the hands, or hand, on this occasion. Rashid flings out the googly, which isn't picked by Roshen, and it pops up off the inside edge. Reflexes are razor sharp, he stays low to the ground, and clings on with the left hand. England may have dropped a few, but Jennings is getting wickets out of nothing.
56.1 - Ben Stokes to Kusal Mendis. Short, down leg side on the back foot pulling, Gloved to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Foakes.

57.3 - FOUR! Adil Rashid to Kusal Mendis. Leg spinner full toss, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep extra cover for 4 runs. First poor delivery of the spell from Rashid. Slips out the hand and it's a juicy full toss for Mendis. Crushed through the covers for four.
57.4 - Adil Rashid to Kusal Mendis. Leg spinner half volley, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, to mid on for 1 run, fielded by Root.
57.5 - Adil Rashid to Niroshan Dickwella. Leg spinner length ball, middle stump on the back foot working, hit pad to leg gully for no runs, fielded by Jennings.
57.6 - APPEAL! Adil Rashid to Niroshan Dickwella. Leg spinner length ball, down leg side on the front foot sweeping, Play and Miss (Leg Side) to wicketkeeper for no runs, by Foakes, appeal made for Caught. Down the legside, and spinning even further down. Dickwella sweeps, but does not make a connection. A small noise, which makes England go up, but that may have been bat on ground.
58.1 - FOUR! Ben Stokes to Kusal Mendis. Short, down leg side on the back foot pulling, well timed past deep backward square leg for 4 runs. Mendis knows the plan, and isn't that comfortable with it. Plays this nicely, though. Gets on top of the bounce, and cradles it round the corner.
58.2 - Ben Stokes to Kusal Mendis. Short, down leg side on the back foot Steer, to gully for no runs, fielded by Root.
58.3 - Ben Stokes to Kusal Mendis. Back of a length, down leg side on the back foot working, to backward square leg for 1 run, fielded by Buttler.

59.2 - APPEAL! Adil Rashid to Niroshan Dickwella. Leg spinner half volley, middle stump on the front foot flick, hit pad to gully for no runs, fielded by Stokes, appeal made for L.B.W. Turning too much, and Rashid knows that. Dickwella's stance means you can see off and middle stump, so the ball was clearly missing leg.

59.4 - Adil Rashid to Niroshan Dickwella. Leg spinner half volley, middle stump on the front foot sweeping, to short leg for no runs, fielded by Jennings.

wicket: OUT! Caught. Ben Stokes to Niroshan Dickwella. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot glancing, inside edge to wicketkeeper, by Foakes. Stokes is putting in a right shift in the heat and humidity of Colombo. He is getting his reward, too. Awkward delivery angled into the ribs, Dickwella has a little feel for it, and the ball kisses the inside edge down the legside. Foakes makes no mistake, and England are running through Sri Lanka here!

60.4 - Ben Stokes to Dilruwan Perera. Half volley, to leg on the front foot pushing, to point for no runs, fielded by Ali.

wicket: OUT! Caught. Adil Rashid to Kusal Mendis. Leg spinner length ball, off stump on the back foot pushing, outside edge to first slip, by Stokes. The hosts are crumbling! Rashid and Stokes making the perfect combination. Mendis giving the latter some catching practice at first slip here. Initially wanted to let it go, but at the last moment he jabs at the ball. Outside edge taken, and straight into the bread basket. What a remarkable turnaround this has been after tea.

61.6 - Adil Rashid to Suranga Lakmal. Slider length ball, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, to short extra cover for no runs, fielded by Buttler.
wicket: OUT! Caught. Ben Stokes to Dilruwan Perera. Short, down leg side on the back foot Fended, Gloved to wicketkeeper, by Foakes. You felt that was coming against Dilruwan. Couldn't handle the pace and bounce of Stokes. The Durham man comes charging in again, bangs it into the pitch, and the accuracy is spot on. In at the throat, and Perera doesn't know what to do. Cannot drop the hands in time, and it lobs through to Foakes for another simple take. What is happening to Sri Lanka?
62.2 - Ben Stokes to Lakshan Sandakan. Back of a length, down leg side on the back foot glancing, hit pad to leg gully for no runs, fielded by Buttler.

wicket: OUT! Run Out. Ben Stokes to Lakshan Sandakan. Length ball, outside off stump on the back foot pushing, to mid off, direct hit by Rashid. It's Rashid and Stokes doing all the damage for England. A run out to add to the chaos of the Sri Lankan batting display this evening. Prodded to the leg spinner at extra cover, who makes a slight fumble. Sandakan attempts to run on the misfield, but that turns out to be a mistake. Rashid quickly recovers, collect, turns, and nails the stumps at the non-striker's end. Sandakan isn't in the frame.
62.6 - Ben Stokes to Suranga Lakmal. Length ball, to leg on the front foot flick, Play and Miss (Leg Side) to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Foakes.

63.5 - FOUR! Adil Rashid to Malinda Pushpakumara. Googly back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed past fine leg for 4 runs. Reads the googly this time. Rashid drags the wrong'un very short, and Pushpakumara has plenty of time to pick his spot. Rocks back, and swats behind square for four.
63.6 - Adil Rashid to Malinda Pushpakumara. Leg spinner length ball, to leg on the front foot defending, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Foakes.
64.1 - Jack Leach to Suranga Lakmal. Stock ball full toss, down leg side on the front foot flick, to deep mid wicket for 1 run, fielded by Bairstow.

64.3 - Jack Leach to Malinda Pushpakumara. Stock length ball, middle stump on the front foot defending, to short leg for no runs, fielded by Jennings.
64.4 - APPEAL! OUT changed by umpire to NOT OUT after REFERRAL. Jack Leach to Malinda Pushpakumara. Stock ball back of a length, middle stump on the front foot sweeping, Gloved to for no runs, appeal made for L.B.W. Premeditated sweep, Pushpakumara misses, and up goes the finger. Looks pretty adjacent, but the review is taken. Oh, a tiny bit of glove before the impact on the pad. That will be reversed. Sri Lanka keep going!
64.5 - FOUR! Jack Leach to Malinda Pushpakumara. Stock ball half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep point for 4 runs. Given air, and plenty of width. Pushpakumara frees the arms, and wallops it through the offside for four.

65.1 - Adil Rashid to Suranga Lakmal. Leg spinner back of a length, off stump on the back foot pushing, to mid on for 1 run, shy attempt by Root.
65.2 - FOUR! Adil Rashid to Malinda Pushpakumara. Leg spinner half volley, down leg side on the front foot sweeping, well timed past fine leg for 4 runs. Flighted down leg this time, and a lovely sweep shot from the number eleven. Nailed to the long leg boundary. He's clearly got a few shots in the locker.
65.3 - Adil Rashid to Malinda Pushpakumara. Leg spinner back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, to cover for 1 run, fielded by Burns.
65.4 - Adil Rashid to Suranga Lakmal. Leg spinner half volley, to leg on the front foot Slog, leading edge in the air uncontrolled to extra cover for 1 run, fielded by Burns.
wicket: OUT! L.B.W. Verified by umpire after REFERRAL. Adil Rashid to Malinda Pushpakumara. Leg spinner length ball, to leg on the back foot working, hit pad to. That finishes that. Pushpakumara is deep in the crease, flatter and quicker from Rashid, which means he doesn't get as much turn. Skids on, and pins the number eleven in front of middle and leg. Pretty plumb, and confirmed by HawkEye after a review.<br><br>What a manic period of play that was. Sri Lanka lost their last nine wickets for just 67 runs, and are now well behind the game. Rashid and Stokes proved to be a wonderful bowling partnership, and once one went, the rest seemed to follow! All Karunaratne and Dhananjaya's hard work gone to waste. Rashid gets a Test best. England in the driving seat. They can build on this lead of 96 shortly.

3.6 - Dhananjaya de Silva to Rory Burns. Off break half volley, off stump on the front foot defending, bat-pad to silly point for no runs, fielded by Gunathilaka. The light is fading, the umpires take a reading, and they decide that will be the end for today.<br><br>What a day of cricket we have had. 13 wickets fell, most of them in the last session, and things are looking rather bleak for the hosts. They won the morning and afternoon, and were in a commanding position at tea, thanks to Dimuth Karunaratne and Dhananjaya de Silva. They then spiralled out of control because of the spin and pace combo of Adil Rashid and Ben Stokes, along with outrageous grabs from Keaton Jennings at short leg. Sri Lanka need England to do what they did tonight to get back into the match, otherwise they will be facing a 3-0 whitewash. Can England assert their authority tomorrow? Or will Sri Lanka fightback?
wicket: OUT! L.B.W. Dilruwan Perera to Keaton Jennings. Off break length ball, off stump on the front foot defending, hit pad. <br><br>An enthralling day of Test match cricket yesterday with momentum switching in dramatic fashion. At one point Sri Lanka were cruising with bat in hand and they looked set to surpass the England total and build a lead of their own. That all changed quickly and very dramatically. A mix of hostile bowling and quality spin saw the last seven wickets fall for not many runs and Sri Lanka gave up a crucial lead of 99. Now England are firmly in the driving seat and they have plenty of time today to bat and increase that lead to over 300 which will be incredibly tricky to chase in the fourth innings.<br><br>Brilliant start for Sri Lanka. First ball of the day and they have Jennings walking back. Slid on from the off spinner and didn't really bounce that high. Hit the left-hander on the shin and after a short conversation with his partner Jennings decides not to review. Bairstow would not have been expecting to be out this early and that is why he is taking so long to get ready.

9.4 - Suranga Lakmal to Jonny Bairstow. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to extra cover for no runs. Just finding the fielders at the moment. Bairstow could have been flying had his placement been a little better this morning.

wicket: OUT! L.B.W. Dilruwan Perera to Rory Burns. Off break half volley, off stump on the front foot working, hit pad to. Playing all around a full, straight delivery. Not the best piece of batting from Burns and a relatively simple decision for the umpire to make. England have stumbled slightly this morning against the off spinner in their pursuit of setting a total.

wicket: OUT! Caught (Sub). Dilruwan Perera to Jonny Bairstow. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the back foot working, mis-timed to short leg, by Mathews. Straight off the face and once again we have seen another fantastic catch by the short leg fielder. It was Jennings for England but now the substitute for Sri Lanka Kaushal Silva has reacted extremely quickly to cling onto the catch. This was travelling and at an awkward height but it stuck in the armpit and Sri Lanka continue to have a very good morning.

wicket: OUT! Caught & Bowled. Malinda Pushpakumara to Joe Root. Stock length ball, to leg on the front foot working, leading edge in the air uncontrolled to silly mid off, by Pushpakumara. This is outstanding work by Pushpakumara and Sri Lanka. Their fourth wicket already with the top-order being blown away. Root was looking to nudge this into the legside for a single but offered up a leading edge back to the bowler. It wasn't a simple chance but Pushpakumara made it look easy as he dived full length to his left and clung on.

17.4 - Malinda Pushpakumara to Jos Buttler. Stock ball full toss, outside off stump down the track working, to deep mid wicket for 1 run, fielded by Sandakan. Nice rotation of the strike between this pair. Picking up singles when they are available and not getting stuck at one end.

18.5 - FOUR! Dilruwan Perera to Ben Stokes. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot slog sweeping, well timed in the air under control past deep mid wicket for 4 runs.

18.6 - Dilruwan Perera to Ben Stokes. Off break back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, to short extra cover for no runs.
19.1 - Lakshan Sandakan to Jos Buttler. Chinaman yorker, down leg side on the front foot flick, to deep mid wicket for 1 run, fielded by Silva.
19.2 - FOUR! Lakshan Sandakan to Ben Stokes. Chinaman half volley, down leg side on the front foot sweeping, well timed past fine leg for 4 runs. Off line to start the spell and paddled incredibly fine around the legside. Almost hits the fence directly behind the keeper.

21.4 - FOUR! Lakshan Sandakan to Jos Buttler. Chinaman full toss, down leg side down the track flick, well timed past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Quick feet and an easy flick of the wrists which generates an incredible amount of power.
21.5 - FOUR! Lakshan Sandakan to Jos Buttler. Chinaman full toss, outside off stump down the track Slog, well timed past long on for 4 runs. Buttler is not letting Sandakan settle. Maybe the bowler can try bowling a little shorter and try to pitch it before Buttler can come down.
21.6 - Lakshan Sandakan to Jos Buttler. Googly length ball, outside off stump down the track pushing, to short extra cover for no runs, fielded by Mendis.
22.1 - Dhananjaya de Silva to Ben Stokes. Off break length ball, off stump on the back foot working, to mid wicket for 1 run, fielded by Silva.
22.2 - APPEAL! OUT changed by umpire to NOT OUT after REFERRAL. Dhananjaya de Silva to Jos Buttler. Off break length ball, off stump on the front foot defending, hit pad to for no runs, appeal made for L.B.W. Dhananjaya is not known to turn the ball but this one grips and beats the inside edge. Buttler is struck plumb in front and the finger goes up. Delayed response before the review and England are going to be glad they did. Too much bounce. Everything else was perfect apart from the ball going over the top of the stumps. The Sri Lankan fielders can barely believe it when they see the big screen.

23.4 - APPEAL! Lakshan Sandakan to Ben Stokes. Chinaman half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to short extra cover for 1 run, by Gunathilaka, appeal made for Caught. Oh dear. Sandakan has overstepped after he should have had Stokes out caught. Beautifully tossed up delivery which drew the big drive straight to extra cover but the bowler couldn't keep his foot behind the line. Another life for Stokes in this match.

25.3 - FOUR! Lakshan Sandakan to Ben Stokes. Chinaman length ball, down leg side on the back foot working, well timed past fine leg for 4 runs. Not that far away from leg slip but it was past him before he could react. Rapid outfield and the ball has raced away to the fence.

27.5 - APPEAL! Lakshan Sandakan to Ben Stokes. Chinaman length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, outside edge to first slip for 1 run, by de Silva, appeal made for Caught. What is happening out there? For a second time Sandakan has got Stokes out but overstepped the line. When he is getting the ball in the right areas he is making things happen but bowling two no-balls is criminal for a spinner.
27.5 - Lakshan Sandakan to Ben Stokes. Chinaman length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, to short extra cover for no runs, fielded by Gunathilaka.
27.6 - Lakshan Sandakan to Ben Stokes. Googly back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot driving, to silly mid off for no runs, fielded by Sandakan. <br><br>Well, that was an eventful morning. It has been a tale of two halves for Sri Lanka. In the first hour they were outstanding and the spinners caused real trouble to the top-order, taking four wickets in the process. Since drinks though the partnership of Buttler and Stokes has put the pressure back onto the bowlers and they have let the game get away from them. They have had chances but not been able to capitalise and Sandakan will be kicking himself in the dressing room. England will take a 206 run lead into the break and if they carry on at this rate the game might be out of reach for Sri Lanka at tea.

31.4 - FOUR! Dilruwan Perera to Ben Stokes. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot slog sweeping, well timed in the air under control past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Meaty swing of the bat and into the large open space. Vicious hitting from Stokes and it seems as though he wants to get after the spinners.
wicket: OUT! Caught. Dilruwan Perera to Ben Stokes. Off break length ball, outside off stump down the track driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to long on, by Pushpakumara. Third time lucky for Sri Lanka. The catch is taken at long on as Stokes mis-times his attempted six hit but guess what, the umpire is going to check the no-ball. Dilruwan is fine, Sri Lanka finally break this partnership but has it come too late.

35.2 - FOUR! Dilruwan Perera to Moeen Ali. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, outside edge past third man for 4 runs. Rapid outfield. Genuine edge but played with soft hands so it drops before the slip fielder. Sandakan gave chase but too much for him to do.

wicket: OUT! Stumped. Lakshan Sandakan to Jos Buttler. Chinaman length ball, down leg side down the track working, Play and Miss (Leg Side) to wicketkeeper, by Dickwella. Finally Jos Buttler runs past one. He has been using his feet all day and eventually Sandakan spots him early and bowls it down the legside. Buttler cannot adjust his feet to get over and Dickwella smartly takes the ball and cleans up the stumps. He's fine on the no-ball this time. But it was close.

wicket: OUT! Caught. Lakshan Sandakan to Moeen Ali. Chinaman length ball, outside off stump on the back foot pushing, outside edge to first slip, by de Silva. Smart catch at slip by Dhananjaya.

54.2 - FOUR! Lakshan Sandakan to Ben Foakes. Chinaman back of a length, outside off stump on the front foot cutting, well timed past deep cover for 4 runs. Short, wide and Foakes has plenty of time to pick his spot and put the ball to the fence.

The pitch seems to have settled down a lot and batting is looking very easy. Still some turn for the bowlers but it is slow and England have been able to either get out to the pitch or play from the crease. Big session coming up for the hosts and they have to bowl out England quickly if they want any chance of getting anything from this match.

wicket: OUT! Caught. NOT OUT changed by umpire to OUT after REFERRAL. Malinda Pushpakumara to Adil Rashid. Stock length ball, down leg side on the front foot defending, Gloved to wicketkeeper, by Dickwella. Fantastic delivery from Pushpakumara from over the wicket. Lots of turn on offer and Rashid misses it by quite a distance. But the ball just flicks the bottom thumb on its way through and Sri Lanka get a review correct.

wicket: OUT! Caught. Malinda Pushpakumara to Stuart Broad. Stock length ball, to leg on the front foot defending, bat-pad to short leg, by Mendis. As easy as they come at short leg. Broad prodded forward with a long stride but couldn't smother the spin. It turned onto the edge and looped up to Mendis at short leg via the front pad. Sri Lanka need one more wicket before they can get down to the real business of chasing down this total.
62.5 - Malinda Pushpakumara to Jack Leach. Stock length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, bat-pad to short leg for no runs, dropped catch by Mendis.

63.6 - APPEAL! Verified by umpire after REFERRAL. Dilruwan Perera to Ben Foakes. Quicker length ball, off stump on the front foot Slog, hit pad to for no runs, appeal made for L.B.W. Shovel across the line and pinned in front. Quicker from Dilruwan so less spin but he started it too straight so it ends up as umpire's call on the stumps.
64.1 - Malinda Pushpakumara to Jack Leach. Stock length ball, middle stump on the front foot defending, to silly mid on for no runs, fielded by Mendis.
64.2 - Malinda Pushpakumara to Jack Leach. Stock length ball, to leg on the front foot defending, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Pushpakumara.
64.3 - APPEAL! OUT changed by umpire to NOT OUT after REFERRAL. Malinda Pushpakumara to Jack Leach. Stock length ball, down leg side down the track defending, hit pad to wicketkeeper for no runs, by Dickwella, appeal made for Caught. Plenty happening right now. Leach is given out but reviews almost immediately. Pops up off the pad to Dickwella and misses everything else. Don't think Sri Lanka were that confident in their appeal anyway.

67.1 - APPEAL! OUT changed by umpire to NOT OUT after REFERRAL. Dilruwan Perera to Ben Foakes. Quicker ball yorker, off stump on the front foot sweeping, hit pad to for no runs, appeal made for L.B.W. Fired in at the boot and almost everyone in the ground thinks this is out. A review from Foakes but it is probably because he is the last wicket, his reaction seems to suggest he believes he is out. Oh wait a second, as everyone is waiting for HawkEye to show three red lights something different pops up on the big screen. Somehow the ball is missing the leg stump. A look of disbelief on the players and umpire's face.

wicket: OUT! Caught. Dilruwan Perera to Jack Leach. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, outside edge to wicketkeeper, by Dickwella. <br><br>Little tickle through to Dickwella and Perera finishes the innings with a five-wicket haul. England end on 230 which means they have set Sri Lanka a total of 327. Plenty of starts from the middle-order and some good partnerships which got them out of a bit of trouble. Sri Lanka are in a tough spot though chasing such a big score and they are going to have to combat the English spinners who have done so well in this series. A couple of centurions are needed.

0.3 - Stuart Broad to Danushka Gunathilaka. Out-swinging length ball, to leg on the front foot defending, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Foakes. Cracking delivery. Moving away at the last second and passing the outside edge. Not much of an appeal from the bowler or keeper but Root is looking around to see if he should review. Big gap between bat and ball.

1.4 - FOUR! Moeen Ali to Dimuth Karunaratne. Off break full toss, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep extra cover for 4 runs. Rather loose delivery from Moeen and a bit of a gift for Karunaratne to get off the mark with.

wicket: OUT! L.B.W. NOT OUT changed by umpire to OUT after REFERRAL. Jack Leach to Dhananjaya de Silva. Stock length ball, middle stump on the front foot defending, hit pad to. Brilliant review from England. Initially Dhananjaya was given not out with the umpire feeling the ball might be sliding past the leg stump. HawkEye has other ideas and shows that leg stump would have taken the full force. A second big wicket and now the out of form Kusal Mendis strides to the crease.

wicket: OUT! Bowled. Moeen Ali to Dimuth Karunaratne. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, missed to. Got him.

12.5 - FOUR! Ben Stokes to Kusal Mendis. Short, down leg side on the back foot hooking, top edge in the air uncontrolled past third man for 4 runs. Sharop bouncer which Mendis take on. It's too high to control and he gets away with the top edge.
12.6 - FOUR! Ben Stokes to Kusal Mendis. Back of a length, down leg side on the back foot driving, well timed past deep cover for 4 runs. Not as short and width on offer. Comfortable height for Mendis to punch off the back foot through the covers.

wicket: OUT! Caught. Ben Stokes to Angelo Mathews. Short, outside off stump on the back foot hooking, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to deep mid wicket, by Broad. Poor cricket from Angelo Mathews. The trap was set for the short ball but he couldn't resist playing the hook. No timing or control on the shot and he hits it towards Broad who is halfway to the boundary. Not only does Broad make up good ground he pulls out a stunning full length dive and keeps his hand underneath the ball the whole time. Stunning effort from the big fast bowler.

They had the task of setting Sri Lanka a big score and that is exactly what they did. After that it was down to the bowlers to contribute and they did so in fine style. Sri Lanka have been decimated by pace and spin and they have crumbled to 53-4 at stumps. They had no answer to the English plans and now they are looking at a huge mountain to climb. Another 274 more runs are required and they only have three recognised batsmen left. England can sense victory and it would be a historic 3-0 series win if they can finish it off in the next couple of days. Join us again tomorrow.

19.2 - SIX! Moeen Ali to Kusal Mendis. Off break full toss, middle stump on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs. What was that from Moeen?

23.4 - FOUR! Moeen Ali to Lakshan Sandakan. Off break half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep point for 4 runs. Moeen not starting well this morning. He tosses it up high and wide to tempt Sandakan into a false shot. This is anything but that. Big stride forward, smothers the spin, and a brilliant square drive through backward point.

wicket: OUT! Caught. Jack Leach to Lakshan Sandakan. Stock length ball, to leg on the front foot defending, outside edge to first slip, by Stokes. There it is. Nothing Sandakan can do about deliveries like that. Would've dismissed any of the top players. Drifted in, pitched, and spat away. The nightwatchman defends in hope, but the ball flicks the outside edge, to loop into the bucket hands of Stokes at slip. England need five.

29.6 - Adil Rashid to Kusal Mendis. Leg spinner half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to deep cover for 1 run, fielded by Burns. That will be fifty for Mendis. Had a lean time with the bat in this series, but he's a very good player. Excellent innings from him to get out of this rut.

Roshen Silva has also accompanied him well to thwart the England bowlers, who haven't been at their best today. The hosts have a glimmer of hope in this chase now, but things can change very quickly. A huge afternoon session to come.

wicket: OUT! Run Out. Adil Rashid to Roshen Silva. Googly back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot working, to backward square leg for 1 run, direct hit by Leach. Just as you say that, a wicket falls. Brilliant bit of fielding from the unlikely source of Jack Leach. Roshen Silva reads the googly, tucks the ball into the legside, and they try and scamper back for a second. Mendis is a tad hesistant, and that is all that needs to happen for England. Leach swoops in from the boundary, and pings a throws into the stumps at the non-striker's end, to leave the Sri Lankan way short of his ground. The visitors were desperate for something to spark them into life. Is that it?

Leg spinner half volley, off stump on the front foot defending, to silly point for no runs, fielded by Foakes. <br><br>Sri Lanka were going so well until that run out. They definitely had England worried. This partnership will need to do the bulk of the work now if they still want to get the victory.

62.3 - Moeen Ali to Roshen Silva. Off break half volley, outside off stump down the track driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to long on for 2 runs, fielded by Root. Rush of blood from Roshen, and it almost costs his wicket. Root was loitering at a deepish mid on, and his miscue just manages to evade him. Lucky.

62.5 - Moeen Ali to Roshen Silva. Off break half volley, outside off stump on the front foot sweeping, to fine leg for 1 run, fielded by Rashid.
62.6 - Moeen Ali to Niroshan Dickwella. Off break length ball, off stump on the front foot sweeping, top edge in the air uncontrolled to short fine leg for no runs, dropped catch by Jennings. Jennings cannot hold to this one, although he isn't at short leg this time. Dickwella plays a risky sweep against the spin, and it lobs up off the top edge. Jennings charges round from short fine leg, dives forward to get the fingertips underneath, but cannot cling on. A chance.

64.2 - APPEAL! Moeen Ali to Roshen Silva. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, hit pad to gully for no runs, fielded by Root, appeal made for L.B.W. Big turn, big bounce, and no chance of the LBW. Impact was outside off stump too.

64.4 - FOUR! Moeen Ali to Niroshan Dickwella. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot reverse sweeping, well timed past third man for 4 runs. Sweeping pretty much everything is Dickwella. Seems happy to do that. Goes with the spin with a reverse, and connects well.

64.6 - Moeen Ali to Roshen Silva. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, to silly point for no runs, fielded by Foakes.
65.1 - FOUR! Jack Leach to Niroshan Dickwella. Stock ball half volley, outside off stump down the track driving, well timed in the air under control past long on for 4 runs. Lovely shot from Dickwella. He's going to take the aggressive approach. Charges out to the pitch, and thumps it back over the bowler's head.
wicket: OUT! Caught. Jack Leach to Niroshan Dickwella. Stock ball back of a length, off stump on the back foot working, bat-pad to short leg, by Jennings. Gone this time! Is that the wicket that will see England win this match? Jack Leach has been the pick of the bowlers today, and gets himself another one here. Dickwella goes back, and doesn't expect as much bounce as this. It rises up, kisses the inside edge, and pops up off the thigh to Jennings. That's the easiest one he'll take. England just three away now.

68.2 - APPEAL! Moeen Ali to Roshen Silva. Off break half volley, off stump down the track flick, hit pad to first slip for no runs, fielded by Root, appeal made for L.B.W. Everyone's up for this appeal. Moeen produces a beauty. Beats Roshen in the flight, and it dips at the last second. The turn beats the inside to hit the back leg, but it is doing too much. Spinning past leg stump.
68.3 - Moeen Ali to Roshen Silva. Off break half volley, off stump on the front foot flick, to deep backward square leg for 1 run, fielded by Leach.
68.4 - FOUR! Moeen Ali to Dilruwan Perera. Off break half volley, off stump down the track flick, well timed in the air under control past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Ugly, and he just manages to clear mid wicket. Dilruwan comes down the pitch, gets it off the inner half, and mows it over the top.

69.1 - APPEAL! Jack Leach to Roshen Silva. Stock length ball, to leg on the front foot defending, hit pad to gully for no runs, fielded by Stokes, appeal made for L.B.W. Didn't look right straight away. This pitches outside leg, and you don't need to look any further after that. It wasn't turning back enough to hit the wickets anyway.

Stock ball half volley, to leg on the front foot defending, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Leach. <br><br>Sri Lanka may not win this game, but they have shown terrific fight with the bat today. They've had decent patches throughout the series. Just not been consistent enough to come out on top.

72.2 - Moeen Ali to Dilruwan Perera. Off break back of a length, middle stump on the back foot flick, hit pad to short leg for no runs, fielded by Foakes.
wicket: OUT! Caught. Moeen Ali to Dilruwan Perera. Off break back of a length, off stump on the back foot working, bat-pad to short leg, by Jennings. Sri Lanka's hopes are dashed. Moeen gets his third now as well. Sharp bounce from the overspin, and it clips the inside edge before looping off of the thigh to short leg. Jennings always in the game, and makes no mistake there.
72.4 - Moeen Ali to Suranga Lakmal. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Foakes.

73.6 - Jack Leach to Roshen Silva. Stock ball full toss, middle stump down the track pushing, to mid on for 1 run, fielded by Root.
wicket: OUT! L.B.W. NOT OUT changed by umpire to OUT after REFERRAL. Moeen Ali to Roshen Silva. Off break length ball, off stump on the back foot pushing, hit pad to. Excellent review by England here. Roshen Silva is a little late in bringing the bat down to poke this into the offside. England think it has brushed the pad before it came into contact with the willow. If that is the case, it will be very close on the LBW. Replays confirm it was indeed pad first, and all three reds come up on HawkEye. Ends a marvellous knock from Roshen.
74.2 - FOUR! Moeen Ali to Malinda Pushpakumara. Off break half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep backward point for 4 runs. Lovely start from Pushpakumara. Loads of width to chase after, and he produces a delightful square drive. Sliced through the huge open gaps on that side of the wicket.

Off break length ball, off stump on the front foot defending, bat-pad to silly point for no runs, fielded by Foakes, appeal made for L.B.W. This review not so good from Root. A big deviation, two noises, a clear inside edge. Simple work from the third umpire to stick with the onfield decision.

76.1 - APPEAL! Moeen Ali to Suranga Lakmal. Off break length ball, off stump on the front foot defending, bat-pad to silly point for no runs, fielded by Root, appeal made for L.B.W. LBW shout again, but another inside edge means that umpire Ravi shakes the head.
76.2 - Moeen Ali to Suranga Lakmal. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, to short leg for no runs, fielded by Jennings.
76.3 - Moeen Ali to Suranga Lakmal. Off break length ball, middle stump on the front foot defending, to short leg for no runs.

76.5 - APPEAL! Moeen Ali to Suranga Lakmal. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, hit pad to gully for no runs, fielded by Root, appeal made for L.B.W. This one is the closest. Ripped past the inside edge to hit the back leg. Nothing from the umpire again. England have lost all their reviews. HawkEye suggests it was bouncing over the top.
76.6 - APPEAL! Moeen Ali to Suranga Lakmal. Off break length ball, off stump on the front foot defending, hit pad to gully for no runs, direct hit by Root, appeal made for L.B.W. Same thing seems to keep happening every ball. Lakmal keeps getting beat on the inside edge. More appealing, but not out again. Spinning too much this time.

77.3 - FOUR! Jack Leach to Malinda Pushpakumara. Stock ball back of a length, off stump on the back foot cutting, well timed past deep backward point for 4 runs. Pushes onto the back foot, and cracks this through point now. Pushpakumara likes to play his shots. They're coming off for the moment.
77.4 - SIX! Jack Leach to Malinda Pushpakumara. Stock ball half volley, outside off stump down the track driving, well timed in the air under control over long off for 6 runs. Super stuff from the number eleven! Pushpakumara dances down the track and launches Leach over the long off fence for a maximum!

81.3 - FOUR! Adil Rashid to Malinda Pushpakumara. Leg spinner half volley, middle stump down the track driving, well timed past long off for 4 runs. Hitting the ball very nicely here. A little shuffle down the wicket, before Pushpakumara unleashes a ferocious drive down the ground.
81.4 - APPEAL! Adil Rashid to Malinda Pushpakumara. Googly length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, hit pad to silly point for no runs, fielded by Foakes, appeal made for L.B.W. Wrong'un. Not picked, but doing too much. Turning a long way down the legside.

82.6 - APPEAL! OUT changed by umpire to NOT OUT after REFERRAL. Moeen Ali to Suranga Lakmal. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, hit pad to wicketkeeper for no runs, by Foakes, appeal made for Caught. Umpire has given this out caught behind, but Lakmal shakes his head, and reviews straight away. Two noises, but replays show that it was the ball clipping both pads on the way through to Foakes. LBW is checked as well, and it is turning down leg and bouncing over the top. Not a great decision.

83.6 - Adil Rashid to Malinda Pushpakumara. Leg spinner length ball, off stump on the front foot defending, to backward point for no runs, fielded by Broad.
84.1 - FOUR! Moeen Ali to Suranga Lakmal. Off break back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot Late Cut, well timed past third man for 4 runs. Lakmal's turn to get the boundaries. He goes deep in the crease, and back-cuts through a vacant gully region. What a partnership this is!
84.2 - NEW BALL. Moeen Ali to Suranga Lakmal. Off break back of a length, to leg on the back foot flick, to fine leg for 1 run, fielded by Rashid. That is the 50 partnership for the eleventh wicket. If the top order could of done a little bit more, this would be on.
84.3 - Moeen Ali to Malinda Pushpakumara. Off break length ball, off stump on the front foot working, hit pad to short leg for no runs, fielded by Jennings.
84.4 - FOUR! Moeen Ali to Malinda Pushpakumara. Off break length ball, to leg on the front foot sweeping, well timed past fine leg for 4 runs. Incredible stuff. England cannot find an answer to this. Pushpakumara paddles very fine, and the new ball races away to the boundary.
84.5 - Moeen Ali to Malinda Pushpakumara. Off break length ball, middle stump on the back foot glancing, to fine leg for 1 run, fielded by Rashid.
84.6 - Moeen Ali to Suranga Lakmal. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Foakes.

85.2 - Stuart Broad to Malinda Pushpakumara. Short, outside off stump ducked, Left to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Foakes.
85.3 - Stuart Broad to Malinda Pushpakumara. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, to cover for 1 run, fielded by Buttler.

85.6 - Stuart Broad to Malinda Pushpakumara. Length ball, outside off stump on the back foot defending, to short extra cover for no runs, fielded by Buttler. <br><br>Well, who saw this game still going on an hour ago? A remarkable last wicket stand is still giving Sri Lanka hope. They just won't fold. Pushpakumara attacked from ball one, and kept finding the boundary. 43 needed for victory, which still seems a long way off with just one wicket remaining. Can the unimaginable happen? The conclusion of the Test coming up after the break.
86.1 - Jack Leach to Suranga Lakmal. Stock ball back of a length, middle stump on the back foot defending, to silly point for no runs, fielded by Foakes.
86.2 - Jack Leach to Suranga Lakmal. Stock ball back of a length, middle stump on the back foot flick, to short leg for no runs, fielded by Jennings.
86.3 - Jack Leach to Suranga Lakmal. Stock length ball, off stump on the front foot defending, to short extra cover for no runs, fielded by Buttler.
wicket: OUT! L.B.W. Verified by umpire after REFERRAL. Jack Leach to Suranga Lakmal. Stock length ball, off stump on the front foot defending, hit pad to. Fourth ball after tea, and Jack Leach does the business for England! New ball, skids on with the arm, and Lakmal plays down the wrong line. Very important that the umpire raised the finger, as Lakmal reviews, and HawkEye says it is only just clipping the top of leg stump.<br><br>Huge heart shown by Sri Lanka, but once again they are outplayed by this England side. The momentum shifted with that Kusal Mendis run out earlier, otherwise the hosts were on to chase this down. A great Test Match, and even better series. Sri Lanka had moments of excellent cricket, but the consistency lacked. England were positive in their approach, and were very entertaining to watch throughout. A deserved 3-0 whitewash.
