50FOURGurney to A Mendis, FOUR, Sri Lanka get to that psychological 300 mark. Full delivery wide outside off stump, Mendis squeezes it out past short third man and it races away300/9
49.5OUTGurney to Senanayake, out Caught by Cook!! My word! I never knew you could pick up wickets at the death with dolly full tosses! Senanayake gets it high on the bat as he tries to go big, mid-off is inside the ring and it goes straight down his throat. Anyway, Gurney deserves the luck for some fine bowling upfront! Senanayake c Cook b Gurney 12(5) [4s-1 6s-1]296/9
49.4FOURGurney to Senanayake, FOUR, he's not getting away with this full toss though, Senanayake swings it away over square leg and picks up four crucial runs296/8
49.3OUTGurney to Priyanjan, out Caught by Eoin Morgan!! Full toss but it fetches a wicket for Gurney! Priyanjan could have hit it anywhere he wanted to, but he mistimed it completely and it went off the outside half of the bat towards point, Morgan took a few steps back and took it easily. Third wicket for Gurney! Priyanjan c Eoin Morgan b Gurney 9(7)292/8
48.5SIXJordan to Senanayake, SIX, wow! Great hit! Jordan was stunned by that shot from Senanayake. The bowler pays the penalty for bowling length at this stage, Senanayake gets under it and launches it back over the bowler's head and it clears the fence comfortably287/7
48.4OUTJordan to N Kulasekara, out Bowled!! Fantastic yorker from Jordan! Fast and at the base of the leg stump, angled in from a widish angle as well, Kula moves leg-side and tries to force it away but misses and the leg pole is disturbed! N Kulasekara b Jordan 0(2)280/7

49.4OUTMalinga to Buttler, out Buttler Run Out!! Why did you leave the crease Buttler? You could have easily gone back into the crease and Tredwell would have been out. You would have had the strike as well. Fantastic yorker from Malinga, boy what accuracy under pressure, as soon as the bowler released the ball, Tredwell set off for a run, Buttler left the crease and was stranded in the middle, Malinga stopped the ball running to his right as it went nowhere and he took the bails off easily at the bowler's end. End of a great knock from Buttler. Buttler run out (Malinga) 121(74) [4s-11 6s-4]292/8
49.2OUTMalinga to Jordan, out Caught by Dilshan!! Is Malinga going to do it again for Sri Lanka? Full delivery in the slot, Jordan looked to smash it hard, he hit it well but didn't get underneath it, the ball went flat and straight to Dilshan at long-on. Buttler has managed to escape to the striker's end though! That's just what England wanted. Jordan c Dilshan b Malinga 5(10)290/7
48.3FOURN Kulasekara to Buttler, FOUR, no one at sweeper, knew that the length was going to be full, walked to the leg-side, Kula followed him with a low full toss and Buttler has carved it away between cover and point286/6
47.2FOURMalinga to Buttler, FOUR, wow! He's just dug out a yorker for four. Why is mid-off inside the ring at this stage? He was very square as well, the fielder had no chance277/6
46.4OTHERA Mendis to Buttler, 2 runs, sensational maiden ODI hundred and what a time to bring it. He came in under extreme pressure and he's almost taken England home. Full delivery on the leg stump, Buttler flicks it to cow-corner and he returns for the second. The England balcony appreciate the knock, Sanga too was clapping with the gloves on. Buttler takes his helmet off and acknowledges the cheers268/6
46FOURN Kulasekara to Buttler, FOUR, this is why he wanted the strike back. This is some hitting from Buttler. Another one that is overpitched in trying the yorker, Buttler lofts the drive over extra-cover and it goes on the bounce. 20 came off that over265/6
