130.3OTHERHerath to J Root, 2 runs, Double ton for Root. He eases the helmet off his head, flashes a giant smile and soaks in the tumultous applause. Take a bow Rooty. Mathews pats him on his back. MJ, Karuna, Pradeep and in fact every Sri Lankan player congratulates Root. Cook waves his hands from the dressing room and declares the English innings at 575/9. Root reaches this landmark by paddling this one towards fine leg575/9
129.2FOURPradeep to J Root, FOUR, handy runs. Slid down leg, Root tickles it fine, minimal effort required to put those away570/9
128.4DROPPEDHerath to J Anderson, 3 runs, edged and just out of reach of MJ. this was looped up just outside off, Anderson prods at it and nicks it, the ball loops low to the right of Mahela, who can't grab it563/9
128.1FOURHerath to J Root, FOUR, tossed up on leg, Root bends down, does not connect the slog-sweep all that well but the ball balloons over the man at deep mid wicket559/9
126.2FOURHerath to J Anderson, FOUR, aha! Flighted on the stumps, Anderson reverse-sweeps it past extra-cover, good timing on that one552/9
125.3OUTPradeep to Plunkett, out Caught by Kaushal Silva!! Plunkett has been bounced out. Banged in short, rises steeply as well, Plunkett takes his bottom hand off the bat as he pulls at it half-heartedly, he splices it to Silva at mid-wicket. A fairly simple catch that and Pradeep earns his fourth wicket. Plunkett c Kaushal Silva b Pradeep 39(42) [4s-6]547/9

Innings Highlights

138.4OUTJordan to Pradeep, out Hit Wkt!! A freakish dismissal to end the innings, Jordan was troubling him with short stuff all through the over, this time he's bounced him out, it was a well directed short delivery on the stumps, Pradeep got into a tangle and lost his balance, the ball hits his shoulder and fell near the stumps, but he turned around and breaks the stumps with his bat and fell on the stumps, he seem to have injured his shoulder in the process and trudges back slowly to the pavillion. Pradeep hit wkt b Jordan 4(6) [4s-1]453/10
138.2FOURJordan to Pradeep, FOUR, he's put that away, shortish delivery outside off, Pradeep makes room and slaps it away to sweeper cover fence453/9
137.4FOURPlunkett to Eranga, leg byes, FOUR, length delivery angling down the leg side, Eranga misses out on it and the ball goes off his pads to fine leg fence449/9
135.4OUTPlunkett to Mathews, out Lbw!! A fine innings has come to an end, Plunkett slips in a full delivery on middle, Mathews was expecting a short delivery and plays all over it, it angles in to strike him on both the pads in front of the leg stump, Billy raised his finger immediately, but Mathews decided to use the review, replays suggest he didn't get any bat on it and the ball would have clipped the leg stump, umpire's call in the end and Mathews has to walk back. Mathews lbw b Plunkett 102(172) [4s-12]442/9
135FOURJ Anderson to Mathews, FOUR, what a way to get to his ton, his first Test innings in England and he's scored a fine ton, his 3rd in Tests and a perfect captain's innings from him, wide full-toss, Mathews reaches out and thumps it between extra cover and long off, raises his bat in celebration and a standing ovation from his team-mates441/8
132.5FOURJ Anderson to Mathews, FOUR, finally he's found the boundary, Jimmy goes for a yorker and misses it by an inch, Mathews with a strong bottom hand, whips it to deep mid wicket fence435/8

68.1SIXHerath to Ballance, SIX, he gets to his maiden ton with a mighty hit over deep mid wicket, it was turning into him, Ballance gets down and swings it across the line over deep midwicket, that easily sailed into the stands and he raises his arms in celebration, what a moment for the youngster265/8
66.4OUTHerath to Broad, out Caught&Bowled!! A soft dismissal in the end for Broad, tossed up and turning in, Broad tamely pushes it uppishly back to the bowler, who dives to his left and takes a simple dolly. Broad c and b Herath 24(18) [4s-3]256/8

Innings Highlights

Over No.Event TypeEventTeam Score
89.1OUTBroad to Herath, out Caught by Prior!! This game continues to amaze, well directed short delivery on the body, Herath got into a tangle and fends at it awkwardly, but the ball brushes his gloves and lobs to the right of Prior, who dives to his right and takes a sharp catch, but Nasser on air pointed out that when the ball brushes his gloves, it was not in contact with the bat and if he had reviewed it he could have survived, he didn't even wait for the umpire's decision and walked away immediately. Herath c Prior b Broad 1(14)201/9
87OUTJ Anderson to Mathews, out Caught by Cook!! Mathews' terrific vigil has come to an end, J Anderson is on fire at the moment and he has snared the big wicket now, it was a length delivery in the corridor of uncertainity, it held its line a bit as Mathews pokes hard at it , the outside edge went straight to Cook at first slip, who scalps a simple catch and England are 2 wickets away. Mathews c Cook b J Anderson 18(90) [4s-2]201/8
83.2OUTBroad to N Kulasekara, out Lbw!! The game is alive still, it was full and angling into the stumps, Kulasekara missed it trying to defend it to the leg side, no doubts whatsoever on the umpire's mind and he raised his finger immediately, Kula didn't even think of reviewing it and England need 3 wickets to win in under 20 minutes. N Kulasekara lbw b Broad 1(11)199/7
79.5FOURBroad to Mathews, FOUR, he's played that with soft hands, short and down the leg side, Mathews gets across and works it away past the fielder to fine leg198/6
79OUTJordan to P Jayawardene, out Lbw!! Finally a breakthrough, it was full and tailing into the stumps, Jayawardene plays all over it and misses, he was struck low on the pads and he immediately indicated he had edged it to the umpire, who rules him not out initially, but Cook was confident and reviewed it, there was no bat involved and the impact was in line with the stumps, the ball was hitting middle and leg stump and P Jayawardene has to walk back, a brave effort from him though. P Jayawardene lbw b Jordan 8(62)194/6
67.1FOURPlunkett to Mathews, leg byes, FOUR, banged in short on the stumps, Mathews was looking to duck under it, but the ball didn't bounce much and goes off the helmet to the boundary186/5
