Over No.Event TypeEventTeam Score
1.2FOURBroad to Kaushal Silva, FOUR, a delightful shot to get off the mark! Full and wide outside off stump, Silva leans forward, reaches out to this fuller length delivery and drives it past point4/0
1.3FOURBroad to Kaushal Silva, FOUR, full and just swinging away outside off stump, Silva looks to defend and gets a thick edge that runs away past gully, Plunkett gives chase but the ball wins the race8/0
7.5FOURBroad to Kaushal Silva, leg byes, FOUR, shout for LBW, not given. Interestingly, the umpire calls leg byes but Silva got a big inside edge. Full and angling in, Silva looks to drive, the ball takes the edge, brushes the pad and runs away20/0
8.5FOURJ Anderson to D Karunaratne, FOUR, looks to drive off the front foot but Karunaratne gets a thick outside edge that flies past gully24/0
12.2FOURJ Anderson to D Karunaratne, FOUR, full and outside off stum, Karunaratne leans forward and drives it along the ground to the deep extra-cover fence32/0
13.2FOURJordan to D Karunaratne, FOUR, edged but Karunaratne escapes! Cook had to be a foot taller to get there. Jordan gets it bounce steeply from a short of a length, Karunaratne tries to evade but it takes the shoulder of the bat and flies over first slip37/0
14.4OUTJ Anderson to Kaushal Silva, out Caught by Prior!! Surely, Anderson deserved this wicket! Good length delivery moving away outside off stump, Silva wasn't picking those, he tries to defend again but this time gets a faint edge. The appeal from England was spontaneous and the umpire raised the finger. Silva speculated long about the review but he decided against it eventually. There was a tiny little mark on Hop-Spot and it would have been a waste of a review for Sri Lanka. Kaushal Silva c Prior b J Anderson 13(38) [4s-2]37/1
15.3OTHERJordan to Sangakkara, no run, an opportunity to run-out Sanga goes begging! The throw was awkward for Prior as he was on the run. Good length delivery on the leg stump, Sangakkara turns it to mid-wicket and sets off, Karunaratne stands his ground, Sanga rushes back but by then Broad had released the ball. Luckily for Sri Lanka, it wasn't a direct-hit. It bounced just in front of Prior, who was charging in and he couldn't collect the ball properly. Sanga is furious with his partner and says 'it's my call'38/1
18FOURJordan to Sangakkara, byes, FOUR, this time the ball foxes Prior, moves to his right very late as Sangakkara leaves and Sri Lanka get four extra runs46/1
19.3FOURJordan to Sangakkara, FOUR, overpitched and put away. Full delivery on the off stump, Sangakkara drives on the rise and sends it to the deep extra-cover fence52/1
20.1FOURPlunkett to D Karunaratne, FOUR, full delivery outside off stump, Karunaratne punches it off the front foot past the bowler and it races away to the long-off fence. Not a great start for Plunkett56/1
20.2OUTPlunkett to D Karunaratne, out Bowled!! Oh wow! Just as I said not a great start, Plunkett knocks over the leg pole! Karunaratne has been asked to wait to check the no-ball, but Plunkett is fine! Full and angled in from wide of the crease, Karunaratne looks to drive but misses as the ball swung in late, it brushes the thigh pad and shatters the wood work behind. D Karunaratne b Plunkett 28(65) [4s-4]56/2
23.3FOURJordan to Sangakkara, FOUR, overpitched outside off stump, Sangakkara leans forward and drives it along the ground to long-off62/2
23.5FOURJordan to Sangakkara, FOUR, Sangakkara gets an inside-edge and he's very lucky to survive! Full and just outside off stump, Sangakkara drives, gets an edge and it almost shaves the off pole. Sri Lanka need this man to be out there66/2
24.1FOURPlunkett to M Jayawardene, FOUR, short delivery on the off stump, Jayawardene pulls, rolls his wrists and sends it to the deep backward square leg fence70/2
26.4DROPPEDPlunkett to M Jayawardene, 1 run, the trap is set for Jayawardene. Plunkett is bowling fast bouncer from round the wicket with a man at short leg and leg sip, Jayawardene pulls and gets lucky as Bell spills it at leg slip and it runs away to fine leg. Very hard to call that a dropped catch74/2
30.3FOURBroad to Sangakkara, byes, FOUR, another full delivery wide outside off stump, ball doesn't bounce much and foxes Prior as he dives low to his left82/2
31.4FOURPlunkett to Sangakkara, FOUR, top shot after being beaten the previous ball. Full and just outside off stump, Sangakkara keeps his bat very close to the body this time and drives it past the bowler to the long-off fence87/2
32.2FOURBroad to M Jayawardene, FOUR, easy pickings! Full and juicy down the leg side, Jayawardene doesn't try to over-hit the ball, just holds a nice shape and flicks it away between square leg and mid-wicket93/2
33.2FOURPlunkett to Sangakkara, FOUR, wonderful shot! Full and wide outside off stump, Sangakkara leans forward and drives it along the ground to the sweeper-cover fence97/2
35.4DROPPEDPlunkett to Sangakkara, no run, edged and dropped! What a miss that was by Prior. Superb delivery from Plunkett, drew the outside edge, it went at around abdomen height to Prior who got into an awkward tangle, got both gloves and then for some strange reason didn't know where the ball was and it went to ground. He looked up at the wrong moment when the ball was in his gloves, very unusual stuff that and the ball went down. Sangakkara had already tucked his bat inside his arm-pit and started to walk, was shocked to see the keeper dropping it and promptly came back to take strike again. Plunkett was jumping around in joy, but to his bewilderment the catch was put down. How costly will that prove?101/2
36.5FOURBroad to M Jayawardene, FOUR, superb cover drive. All elegance from Jayawardene who leans into the shot and sends it racing across to the sweeper cover fence107/2
37.2OUTPlunkett to M Jayawardene, out Caught by Jordan!! What a catch that is at 2nd slip. Jayawardene is gone. Went for the cover drive and the edge carried to the right of 2nd slip, who took it one-handed. Just nonchalantly done. Jordan seems to have bucket like hands. Just reward for Plunkett who has plugged away relentlessly. M Jayawardene c Jordan b Plunkett 22(47) [4s-3]108/3
37.3OUTPlunkett to Thirimanne, out Caught by Sam Robson!! Plunkett on a hat-trick. This is superb fast bowling. Hostile short delivery, right at the chest area of Thirimanne, who was in no position to play or evade that, he just fended at it in the end and a dolly to short leg. From round the wicket and aimed at the right area, with the requisite amount of pace - can't ask for anything more than that. Thirimanne c Sam Robson b Plunkett 0(1)108/4
42.3FOURJ Anderson to Sangakkara, FOUR, Broad dives to his left at mid-off but he lets it go! Full delivery outside off stump, Sangakkara leans forward and drives hard and picks up four126/4
43.5FOURPlunkett to Mathews, FOUR, full and down the leg side, Mathews easily flicks it away very fine to fine leg and gets four runs134/4
44FOURPlunkett to Mathews, FOUR, overpitched again and Mathews flicks it along the ground through mid-wicket to end the over on a high138/4
44.1FOURJ Anderson to Sangakkara, FOUR, outside edge but it flies over the slip cordon! Sangakkara goes for a booming drive over cover, the ball was there to be hit but he didn't make proper contact. Anyway, Sri Lanka gets some crucial runs142/4
45.4FOURMoeen Ali to Sangakkara, FOUR, a rank long hop from Ali , Sangakkara rocks back, pulls over the infield and sends it wide of long-on147/4
47OTHERJ Anderson to Sangakkara, 1 run, third consecutive score of 50+ for Sanga and it's his 47th Test fifty. Anderson applauds his effort before going to collect the cap from the ump. Full and wide outside off stump, punched well but Broad tidies up at mid-off149/4
47.4FOURMoeen Ali to Sangakkara, FOUR, easy pickings! Can't bowl short on this wicket to a set batsman, Sangakkara rocks back and pulls it handsomely over mid-wicket153/4
48SIXMoeen Ali to Mathews, SIX, just a couple of steps down the track, gets to the pitch of this flighted delivery and lofts it high over wide long-on. Is Cook going to give another over to Ali? Meanwhile, that brings up the fifty partnership as well, in juts 63 balls mind you160/4
48.3OUTJ Anderson to Mathews, out Caught by Ballance!! That's a fine low grab from the youngster! Good length delivery outside off stump, Mathews looks to defend, the ball leaves him very late and takes a thick edge, the ball flies low but Ballance did well to get both hands under it. He's delighted on taking his first Test catch! So then, England have broken this dangerous looking stand! Sri Lanka will have to rebuild again! Mathews c Ballance b J Anderson 26(28) [4s-2 6s-1]161/5
52DROPPEDJordan to Sangakkara, 1 run, in the air and dropped at point. Short and wide outside off stump, Sangakkara cuts uppishly and gets away, it was a slightly tough chance though as Moeen Ali had to move to his right166/5
53.3FOURJordan to Sangakkara, FOUR, wow! Stunning hit! He just presented the full face of the bat and punched the full delivery very well, the ball rolls to the left of mid-off and escapes to the fence171/5
54.2FOURJ Root to Chandimal, FOUR, flighted delivery outside off stump, Chandimal punches it past the bowler and mid-off was very square177/5
55FOURJ Root to Sangakkara, FOUR, friendly low full toss outside off stump, Sangakkara reaches out and drives it hard to the deep extra-cover fence. That's tea ladies and gentlemen182/5

59.2FOURJordan to Chandimal, FOUR, shortish from Jordan, Chandimal gets on top of the bounces and punches it handsomely off the back foot through extra-cover200/5
59.4FOURJordan to Chandimal, FOUR, good length delivery outside off stump, Chandimal defends with an angled bat and gets it on the outside half of the bat, there is no one at third man to stop the ball206/5
60.2FOURJ Anderson to Chandimal, FOUR, again gets it on the outside half of the bat as he defends with an angled bat, this time the ball runs away square of the wicket on the off-side211/5
60.5FOURJ Anderson to Chandimal, FOUR, short and on the off stump, Chandimal rocks back and pulls it along the ground to the deep mid-wicket fence215/5
61.1FOURJordan to Sangakkara, FOUR, short and wide outside off stump, Sangakkara cuts and gets a thick edge, the flies over the slip cordon219/5
62.3FOURBroad to Chandimal, FOUR, poor ball! Short delivery down the leg side, Chandimal rocks back, pulls it along the ground and beats fine leg227/5
63OUTBroad to Sangakkara, out Caught by Bell!! This is a huge wicket for England and what a catch by Bell in his 100th Test. Full delivery outside off stump, Sangakkara drives hard and gets a thick edge, the ball was travelling very fast, Bell at gully, did well to dive to his left and grab the ball. In fact, he took it behind his body. Top knock from Sanga. He was holding one end up and it's upto Chandimal now to guide Sri Lanka to a good score. Sangakkara c Bell b Broad 79(147) [4s-13]228/6
63.4OUTPlunkett to Dhammika, out Caught by Prior!! That's a nasty bouncer and Plunkett has his fourth wicket. The ball rises steeply as Plunkett put in a lot of effort behind this one, Prasad tries to fend it but it went off the glove. Prior took an easy catch in the end. Umpire Billy Bowden took his time, but eventually, he ruled it in favour of the hosts. Dhammika c Prior b Plunkett 0(2)229/7
64.1OUTBroad to Chandimal, out Caught by Cook!! Last of the recognised batsmen goes and it's just a matter of time for England to wrap things up!

Chandimal c Cook b Broad 45(55) [4s-6]229/8
64.2OUTBroad to Eranga, out Caught by Prior!! Want wickets? Rush to Headingley, Sri Lanka are gifting them! Nothing but a gentle outswinger from Broad, Eranga pokes at it tentatively and nicks it to the keeper who takes a fine low catch. Eranga c Prior b Broad 0(1)229/9
65.1FOURPlunkett to Herath, FOUR, Herath slashes hard and gets a thick edge that escapes past third slip for four238/9

60.5DROPPEDHerath to Ballance, no run, Dropped! Silva the culprit there. This was pushed through on off, Ballance plunges forward, pushes at it with hard hands, gets a thickish inside edge that pops low to short leg. The ball pops in, then pops out of Silva's hands. MJ is distraught168/1
64.5FOURHerath to Ballance, FOUR, Tossed up, Ballance bends down to sweep, gets a top-edge that drops into no-man's land between deep backward square leg and deep fine leg, what's more - the ball spins away and travels to the fence182/1
67.3OUTMathews to Ballance, out Caught by Chandimal!! Ballance has nicked off. He is on his haunches. No back-to-back centuries for the local hero. This was a tempter - full and angled across just wide outside off - Ballance pokes at it, the outside edge nestles into the gloves of Chandi just 15 minutes before tea. I guess Silva owes Chandi a drink. Ballance c Chandimal b Mathews 74(157) [4s-8]191/2

83.4FOURDhammika to Bell, FOUR, back of a length and on the stumps, Bell swivels on the back foot and pulls it away fine, his balance left nothing to be wanted there264/2
85.2FOUREranga to Bell, FOUR, another one on a back of a length and outside off, Bell does not get fully in control of this one, still late-cuts it well wide of gully272/2

86.3OUTPradeep to Sam Robson, out Bowled!! Pradeep strikes with the second new ball. Robson walks off to a standing ovation and rightly so. The umpires are asking him to wait to check for a possible no-ball. Thankfully for SL, Pradeep is fine on that count as well. Robson raises his bat and acknowledges the raucous cheers as he troops off. This was a fullish indipper, Robson pushes at it lazily, the ball shoots through the gate to thunk into the top of the off-stump. Sam Robson b Pradeep 127(253) [4s-15 6s-1]278/3
88.1FOURPradeep to J Root, FOUR, Pradeep gets some inswing but sprays this on the pads, Root eases it to the backward square leg fence with a handsome flick, nice way to get off the mark282/3

96OUTEranga to Bell, out Caught by Chandimal!! Bell has been strangled down leg. No 100 in his 100th Test for Bell. This was a harmless ball slid down leg, Bell aims to glance it away, does not get enough bat onto it, nicks it through to Chandi, who flies quickly to his left to snaffle it. Umpire Davis gives it OUT, Bell departs wearing a forlorn look. Bell c Chandimal b Eranga 64(90) [4s-8]311/4
96.4OUTMathews to J Root, out Caught by Chandimal!! Two wickets in as many overs for Sri Lanka. This was a good length ball in the channel of uncertainty, Root prods at it after pushing forward, feathers it to Chandi. This was a simpler take. Root punches his gloves onto the bat as he walks off. J Root c Chandimal b Mathews 13(32) [4s-2]311/5
99.5OUTEranga to Moeen Ali, out Caught by Chandimal!! Sri Lanka are clawing their way back into this match.

104.1FOURMathews to Jordan, FOUR, nice way to start Day 3. It was a short of length delivery offering some width, Jordan gets back in the crease and cuts it to third man324/6
107.4FOUREranga to Jordan, FOUR, well, well, what happened there? It was a fuller ball, swings away a touch quite late as Jordan attempts to push at it, gets the outside edge and the ball flies between the wicketkeeper and the first slip to the third man fence333/6
109.3OUTEranga to Jordan, out Caught by M Jayawardene!! And Sri Lanka have got their breakthrough. Excellent take by Mahela at the second slip. It was a length delivery moving away outside off, Jordan pokes at it but ends up getting a thick outside edge that flies behind. Mahela is quick to intercept it as he dives to his left and snares a fantastic catch. This is his 196th catch in Tests, he levels with Ponting on that count. Jordan c M Jayawardene b Eranga 17(30) [4s-2]338/7
109.5FOUREranga to Broad, FOUR, fullish and wide outside off, Broad has a go at it and edges it to the third man fence343/7
110.3OUTMathews to Broad, out Caught by Thirimanne!! Another soft dismissal and England have already lost 2 wickets in the first 30 minutes of the day. A fine low take by the gully fielder this time. It was a slightly back of a length delivery outside off, Broad gets forward and drives at it. The outside edge carries the ball in the safe hands of Thirimanne at gully, who moves to his left and takes a low catch. Broad c Thirimanne b Mathews 4(6) [4s-1]344/8
112.5OUTMathews to Plunkett, out Bowled!! Another one down for England. They are just one wicket away from folding. Excellent delivery by Mathews. It was a length ball outside off that shapes back in sharply, Plunkett looks to push it off the front foot, misses and the ball goes on to crash on middle after shooting through the gate. Plunkett b Mathews 2(11)350/9
114.2FOURMathews to Prior, FOUR, nicely done by Prior. It was a short of length delivery on middle, Prior rapidly comes on the front foot and slams it to the long on fence355/9
115.1SIXEranga to Prior, SIX, what a shot by Prior! It was a length delivery on middle, Prior comes down the track and lofts it elegantly over the long on fence for a maximum362/9
115.5OUTEranga to J Anderson, out Caught&Bowled!! And that is the end of England innings. Eranga bowled this one very short on middle, it is too high for Anderson, he takes his eyes off the ball and looks to fend, the ball flies in the air and offers a simple catch back to the bowler. J Anderson c and b Eranga 0(6)365/10

100.2FOURHerath to Moeen Ali, FOUR, he's moved into the 90s, bit too full from Herath, Moeen Ali gets under it nicely and swings it straight through the line to long on, one bounce and into the fence233/9
100.5OTHERHerath to J Anderson, no run, turning in from way outside off, Anderson gets outside the line and pads it away, huge appeal was turned down, but Mathews reviews it, I don't know who forced him to as he was struck outside the line and the ball didn't turn enough to hit the stumps, SL lose all their reviews234/9
110.1FOURPradeep to Moeen Ali, FOUR, What a fighting innings from Moeen! His maiden Test ton. This was a buffet ball - sliding down leg- Ali tickles it fine and off his hips to reach the landmark. Subdued celebrations from Ali, he knows that the job ain't over241/9
110.4FOURPradeep to Moeen Ali, FOUR, fraction short and outside off, Ali dabs it with soft hands and places it wide of gully247/9
116.5OUTEranga to J Anderson, out Caught by Herath!! Its sheer, convoluted drama here at Headingley. Spare a thought for Jimmy and Moeen. The former goes down on his knees. This was a rip-snorter from Eranga - banged in short and rising on Jimmy, who takes his eyes off the ball and fends at it awakwardly, the ball loops through to Herath at backward square leg. The celebrations are in full swing in the Lankan camp. J Anderson c Herath b Eranga 0(55)249/10
