OUT! Caught. Nuwan Pradeep to Mark Wood. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, outside edge to wicketkeeper, by Perera. Tiny nick, and Sri Lanka win! One ball to bowl at Mark Wood, and Pradeep gets it spot on. Lovely line and length, Wood hangs the bat out, and Perera gobbles up the edge to seal things.What a game of cricket that was. High drama till the very end. England were extremely poor with the bat, apart from Joe Root and Ben Stokes, but huge credit must go to Sri Lanka. No one expected them to pull off this victory. Lasith Malinga stood up for his team and took four important wickets, and that gave them the belief to get those two points. Remarkable win, which certainly blows things wide open in this tournament.Hopefully the games will continue like that for the rest of the competition! Tomorrow we have two World Cup games on. India take on Afghanistan, and West Indies take on New Zealand. Should be another good day for cricket.

SIX! Jofra Archer to Angelo Mathews. Leg cutter length ball, middle stump on the front foot Slog, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs. That's in the slot from Archer. Mathews clears the front leg, and pumps it over the legside for six. Nice strike.

OUT! Bowled. Mark Wood to Lasith Malinga. Yorker, to leg backing away driving, missed to. That's how you bowl to the tailenders. Two accurate bouncers, followed by a mean yorker that tailed into leg. Malinga walked outside his leg stump to expose the wickets, and couldn't dig it out.

FOUR! Jofra Archer to Angelo Mathews. Short, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, well timed in the air under control past third man for 4 runs. Super shot from Mathews. Knew the short one was coming, so got in position early, and just dinked the ball over the keeper for four.

OUT! Caught. Mark Wood to Isuru Udana. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to mid on, by Root. Got him this time. The short ball working for Wood. Too much pace for Udana, who flaps at the ball, and mis-hits it to mid on for a simple grab. Sri Lanka are in danger of not completing their fifty overs.
46.3

FOUR! Mark Wood to Isuru Udana. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, top edge in the air uncontrolled past third man for 4 runs. Not sure how that's gone down there. Udana swings hard, aiming over mid wicket, but the ball flies off the edge and skips away to the third man boundary.

OUT! Caught. Jofra Archer to Thisara Perera. Short, outside off stump backing away cutting, in the air uncontrolled to third man, by Rashid. A third catch taken down at third man today. Thisara wildly swings and was never in control of this. The ball loops down to Adil Rashid, who takes a smart catch tumbling forward. Three for Jofra.

OUT! Caught. Jofra Archer to Dhananjaya de Silva. Leg cutter short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, mis-timed to mid on, by Root. Excellent grab. England have been superb in the field today. Archer changes his pace, and that causes Dhananjaya to miscue. The ball loops up to mid on, and Root takes a brilliant two handed catch.

FOUR! Joe Root to Angelo Mathews. Off break full toss, down leg side on the front foot sweeping, well timed past fine leg for 4 runs. Poor delivery from Root. A big full toss down the legside, and Mathews helps it on its way to bring up his fifty. It's been a slow one, but important for Sri Lanka.

FOUR! Adil Rashid to Dhananjaya de Silva. Leg spinner half volley, off stump on the front foot slog sweeping, well timed in the air under control past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Picked up nicely by Dhananjaya. Tossed up high, he gets down on one knee, and heaves it over cow corner for four.

W
OUT! Caught & Bowled. Adil Rashid to Jeevan Mendis. Leg spinner half volley, off stump on the front foot pushing, back to bowler, by Rashid. Poked straight back into the hands of Rashid. He's got two in two, and Sri Lanka are falling apart. It's a timid stroke from Mendis, who prods with hard hands, and chips it back for a simple catch. England are turning the screw.
29.4
W
OUT! Caught. Adil Rashid to Kusal Mendis. Googly length ball, outside off stump on the front foot slog sweeping, to short mid wicket, by Morgan. Rashid gets the breakthrough! Mendis seemed to spot the googly, and wanted to go with the turn. Fetched from a long way outside off stump, and he drags it into the hands of the England captain. A sharp catch from Morgan, diving to his left and holding on with both hands.
29.1

FOUR! Adil Rashid to Angelo Mathews. Leg spinner yorker, middle stump on the front foot sweeping, well timed past deep backward square leg for 4 runs. Mathews uses his reach to get the ball on the full, and swipes it away behind square, where there isn't a fielder in sight.

FOUR! Adil Rashid to Angelo Mathews. Leg spinner half volley, middle stump on the front foot Slog, well timed in the air under control past long on for 4 runs. Not a pretty looking shot, but it's effective. Mathews hacks against the spin, just about clears the infield, and it trickles away into the rope.

W
OUT! Caught. Mark Wood to Avishka Fernando. Short, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, in the air uncontrolled to third man, by Rashid. Oh dear, what has Fernando done? He was playing so nicely, and just gives his wicket away. Bumper from Wood, the Sri Lankan arches the back, and tries to ramp it over third man, but doesn't get enough on it. Lifted straight down the throat of the man down there, and Rashid makes no mistake.

FOUR! Mark Wood to Avishka Fernando. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Steer, thick edge past third man for 4 runs. Opened the face to guide it down to third man, but didn't intend to get it that fine. The ball runs off the edge, and the fielder on the boundary edge cannot get round to cut it off.

SIX! Jofra Archer to Avishka Fernando. Short, outside off stump on the back foot hooking, well timed in the air under control over fine leg for 6 runs. Bangs it into the pitch now, and Fernando sends it out the stadium! Swipes the bat at it, and because of the pace from Archer, the ball flies away for a maximum.

FOUR! Jofra Archer to Avishka Fernando. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Taking the attack to the England bowlers. Not that short, but Fernando rocks back to shovel it over the legside for four.

OUT! Caught. Chris Woakes to Kusal Perera. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, thick edge in the air uncontrolled to third man, by Ali. The good start gets even better for the hosts! Both the openers are already back in the pavilion. Perera goes chasing after a wide delivery, throwing the kitchen sink at it, and the ball flies off the edge down to the third man. Moeen Ali was placed perfectly, and pouches without fuss.

Perfect line and length, nipped away a fraction, and the ball kissed the outside edge on the way through to the keeper. Not much you can do as a batsman to that. All credit to the bowler. Terrific start for England.

OUT! Caught. Dhananjaya de Silva to Adil Rashid. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the back foot pushing, outside edge to wicketkeeper, by Perera. Three for Dhananjaya! Sri Lanka are delighted! It's similar to the Woakes wicket. Rashid was playing for turn, didn't get it, and there's a thin edge through to the Perera. A more routine take for the keeper, who mops up well. The visitors just need two more wickets!
40.1
W
OUT! Caught. Dhananjaya de Silva to Chris Woakes. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, outside edge to wicketkeeper, by Perera. Nicked and gone! It's a wonderful take by the keeper standing up. Woakes flashes outside his off stump, not much turn, and it deflects off the willow into the Kusal's hands. Sri Lanka on top now?

OUT! Caught. Dhananjaya de Silva to Moeen Ali. Off break length ball, outside off stump down the track driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to long off, by Tillakaratna. But the pressure goes right back onto England! Adrenaline high for Moeen, and he cannot help himself. Dances down to hit it out the park again, but doesn't get a good connection. Miscued down to long off, and Udana swallows it up.

SIX! Dhananjaya de Silva to Moeen Ali. Off break half volley, middle stump on the front foot slog sweeping, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs.

OUT! L.B.W. Lasith Malinga to Jos Buttler. Yorker, middle stump on the front foot flick, hit pad to. Malinga has four. He is single-handedly doing the job for Sri Lanka. Buttler tries to clip this off the toes, but the ball sneaks underneath the bat to smash into the boot. Review taken by England, but it's stone dead. Three reds on HawkEye. This could go down to the wire!

FOUR! Thisara Perera to Ben Stokes. Length ball, to leg on the front foot Steer, outside edge past third man for 4 runs. A little lucky from Stokes. He looks to run it down to third man, but edges just past the dive of the keeper. Handy boundary for England, though.

OUT! Caught. Lasith Malinga to Joe Root. Length ball, middle stump on the front foot glancing, inside edge to wicketkeeper, by Perera. Root gets a faint one on it down the legside, and Kusal Perera snaps it up to give Sri Lanka a crucial wicket. A shake of the head from the umpire originally, but the review quickly changed it to the correct decision. Clear noise as it passed the bat. The game hangs in the balance again.

SIX! Jeevan Mendis to Ben Stokes. Leg spinner short, off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control over long on for 6 runs. Goes all the way again. That's buffet bowling from Jeevan. A rank long hop, and Stokes can put it where he wants. Muscled over long on again.

SIX! Jeevan Mendis to Ben Stokes. Leg spinner length ball, off stump down the track driving, well timed in the air under control over long off for 6 runs. Makes that look very easy. Stokes jumps out to the pitch, and belts this back over the bowler's head for a maximum.

FOUR! Nuwan Pradeep to Ben Stokes. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot flick, well timed past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Angled into the pads, and Stokes tucks this nicely through mid wicket. Wide open spaces through that region, and it cannot be cut off.

FOUR! Isuru Udana to Ben Stokes. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed past deep backward square leg for 4 runs. First boundary for Stokes. On the hip, swivels on it to get it round the corner, and he finds the gap for four.

OUT! Caught & Bowled. Isuru Udana to Eoin Morgan. Full toss, off stump on the front foot driving, well timed back to bowler, by Tillakaratna. Gone this time! A great reflex catch from Isuru Udana. A low full toss, drilled back hard, and the left armer gets it to stick in both hands in his follow-through. Sri Lanka needed that.

FOUR! Isuru Udana to Joe Root. Length ball, to leg on the front foot flick, well timed past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Whipped away through a vacant mid wicket, and the timing of Root is sensational. The fielder had no chance of catching it.

FOUR! Isuru Udana to Eoin Morgan. Length ball, outside off stump on the back foot glancing, well timed past fine leg for 4 runs. Angled into Morgan, and he tickles this away off the hip to the fine leg fence. Very delicate.

FOUR! Lasith Malinga to Eoin Morgan. Length ball, off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep cover for 4 runs. Solid start from the England skipper. He plonks down onto the front foot, and crisply drives through the covers for four.

OUT! Caught. Lasith Malinga to James Vince. Out-swinging length ball, off stump on the front foot driving, outside edge to second slip, by Mendis. Malinga keeps it full, and Vince is out driving again! Hooping away from the right hander, a flashing blade, and the edge is snaffled up nicely by second slip. Wonderful start for Sri Lanka, and it certainly is game on now!

FOUR! Lasith Malinga to James Vince. Half volley, middle stump on the front foot flick, well timed past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Back to back for Vince. A glorious clip off the toes now, and it zooms away to the mid wicket boundary.

FOUR! Nuwan Pradeep to Joe Root. Out-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the back foot driving, well timed past deep point for 4 runs. Finally the first boundary of the England innings. A bit of shape away, and Root goes with it, opening the blade to cream it through the gap.

OUT! L.B.W. Lasith Malinga to Jonny Bairstow. Out-swinging length ball, middle stump on the front foot working, hit pad to. There is the early wicket that Sri Lanka wanted! Bairstow is gone first ball. Malinga flings it down, the Yorkshireman plays across his front pad, and he cannot get any bat on it. Up goes the finger, and a review is used. HawkEye says it is just clipping leg stump. Good enough!
