England v SL - 3rd ODI

Live from Old Trafford

  • Anderson sends dangerman Dilshan on his way for two

    5/28/2014 1:50:05 PM
  • Over 7 - Sri Lanka 22/2 (Sangakkara 6, Jayawardene 5)
    Chance! For all the time Sangakkara and Jayawardene have spent batting together, they get themselves in a horrible tangle here as they decide whether or not to take a quick single. They decide to go for it, but Anderson has time to take aim and throw at the non-striker's end with Jayawardene well short of his crease. But he misses the target, and the veteran survives.
    5/28/2014 1:50:16 PM
  • Over 8 - Sri Lanka 23/2 (Sangakkara 6, Jayawardene 5)
    Better over from Gurney. GJust a single from it - a leg-bye - and gets one to snake past Jayawardene's outside edge.
    5/28/2014 1:53:55 PM
  • Over 9 - Sri Lanka 25/2 (Sangakkara 7, Jayawardene 6)
    Real test of two excellent techniques this. Anderson probing away, but Sangakkara and Jayawardene equal to the task so far. Two singles from the over.
    5/28/2014 1:57:19 PM
  • Over 10 - Sri Lanka 28/2 (Sangakkara 9, Jayawardene 6)
    First bowling change as Chris Jordan is into the attack. More importantly, that means Chris Jordan's run-up is into the attack. One of the great sights in cricket. He's the only person in the world who can bowl at 85 mph while dragging two enormous but invisible weights tied to his legs. But it works. Been in fine form recently and looks on course for a Test debut next month. First over is tidy enough.
    5/28/2014 2:01:28 PM
  • [ianbotham] Great comeback from Jordan! Pushed across the left-hander, Sangakkara went for the drive and it was a regulation catch. Much better length. Perhaps that four woke him up. The dangerous Sangakkara goes for 13!

    5/28/2014 2:02:54 PM
  • Over 11 - Sri Lanka 28/2 (Sangakkara 9, Jayawardene 6)
    Another maiden from Anderson, who has 2/9 from his six overs with the new ball so far. Still two slips in place as England look for wickets.
    5/28/2014 2:06:10 PM
  • WICKET! Sangakkara c Buttler b Jordan 13

    [wicket]Sangakkara slaps a short ball from Jordan for four through the offside, but the next ball is full and inviting the drive outside the off stump. Sanga goes for it, and can only get a thick edge through to Buttler, who has his third catch of the innings.
    5/28/2014 2:07:44 PM
    That is now 50 ODI victims for Jos Buttler in his 31st match
    5/28/2014 2:08:47 PM
  • WICKET: A thick edge from Sangakkara off the bowling of Jordan. 32-3. #EngvSL

  • Over 12 - Sri Lanka 32/3 (Jayawardene 6, Chandimal 0)
    Good from Cook, putting in a third slip and a short-leg for new batsman Chandimal as England look to press home their early advantage. They were guilty of not chasing wickets in the second game, but that's not the case here.
    5/28/2014 2:12:00 PM
  • Over 13 - Sri Lanka 33/3 (Jayawardene 7, Chandimal 0)
    A seventh over for Anderson with the new ball. Makes sense - he's bowling beautifully and is so much more effective with the new white ball than in the latter stages of the innings. Just a single for Jayawardene before Chandimal is hit on the pads by an in-ducker as he shoulders arms. Big lbw appeal, but going over the top.
    5/28/2014 2:16:51 PM
  • Over 14 - Sri Lanka 39/3 (Jayawardene 7, Chandimal 4)
    Chandimal works Jordan neatly into the legside for a pair of twos as England continue to set attacking fields.
    5/28/2014 2:22:24 PM
  • Over 15 - Sri Lanka 43/3 (Jayawardene 10, Chandimal 6)
    Gurney changes ends to replace Anderson. Squares up Jayawardene, who still manages to guide the ball safely to third-man for a single. Four more singles follow as the two right-handers work the left-armer around.
    5/28/2014 2:27:01 PM
  • WICKET! Chandimal c Bell b Jordan 6

    [wicket]Another wicket falls as Chandimal plays an expansive drive at Jordan and drills the ball straight to Bell at cover.
    5/28/2014 2:30:02 PM
  • WICKET: Chandimal plays an expansive drive at Jordan and drills it straight to Bell. 45-4.

  • Over 16 - Sri Lanka 45/4 (Jayawardene 11, Mathews 0)
    Big rebuilding job for Jayawardene and Mathews now, or this innings will go the way of England's three days ago.
    5/28/2014 2:34:32 PM
  • [betting] ENG v SL UPDATED ODDS!
    With England firmly in command, the home side have been backed into 1/6 to secure victory at a damp Old Trafford. However, it can all turn very quickly, and even at 4/1, the Lions can't be ruled out. Jayawardene is 6/5 to be next man out!
    5/28/2014 2:36:43 PM
  • Over 17 - Sri Lanka 49/4 (Jayawardene 12, Mathews 3)
    Mathews off the mark with a firm drive past cover that Cook is able to reel in just inside the boundary on this slow outfield. Both sides in Test mode at the moment.
    5/28/2014 2:39:30 PM
  • Over 18 - Sri Lanka 58/4 (Jayawardene 12, Mathews 11)
    Couple of good shots from Mathews bring fours off Jordan, but there's risk involved in both as he drives on the up through mid-on and square-cover.
    5/28/2014 2:43:38 PM
  • WICKET! Jayawardene lbw b Tredwell 12

    [wicket]Huge bonus for England as Jayawardene inexplicably plays all round Tredwell's first ball and is trapped plumb in front of everything.
    5/28/2014 2:45:58 PM
  • Another wicket! Tredwell traps Jayawardene LBW and Sri Lanka are reeling.....58-5: #EngvSL

  • Over 19 - Sri Lanka 59/5 (Mathews 11, Priyanjan 1)
    Not sure who was more surprised by that wicket: Tredwell or Jayawardene. Huge wicket for England, though, and Sri Lanka in deep trouble.
    5/28/2014 2:49:19 PM
  • WICKET! Mathews c Buttler b Jordan 11

    [wicket]Six down now as Mathews feathers a fine edge through to Buttler off Jordan. He tries a review and, although replays and Hot Spot are inconclusive, real-time snicko murmurs sufficiently for the decision to be upheld.
    5/28/2014 2:52:31 PM
  • Over 20 - Sri Lanka 61/6 (Priyanjan 2, Kulasekara 1)
    Kulasekara is off the mark with a single, but England are all over Sri Lanka here. What an odd ODI series this has been.
    5/28/2014 2:55:48 PM
  • Over 21 - Sri Lanka 62/6 (Priyanjan 2 Kulasekara 2)
    Great situation for the spinner to bowl this. Batsmen can't take risks, and Tredwell can just wheel away. He's doing so impressively so far.
    5/28/2014 2:58:10 PM
  • [davidlloyd] Once again Old Trafford comes up trumps! Another blistering day, whilst cricket is abandoned throughout the country. Welcome to Manchester! And by the way, this ground is England's best per centage ratio win. They like it in the sunny north.

    5/28/2014 2:58:46 PM
  • WICKET! Priyanjan run out (Bopara) 2

    [wicket]And another! Priyanjan defends Jordan into the legside and takes a dicey single. Bopara swoops on the ball, picks up one-handed and hits a one-stump target with the batsman six inches short of his ground. Great fielding, poor running. Sri Lanka circling the drain here.
    5/28/2014 3:03:04 PM
  • WICKET! Kulasekara c Tredwell b Jordan 5

    [wicket]Suddenly 99 all out looks a tidy score. Kulasekara the latest to go, squared up by Jordan and edging the ball into the hands of Tredwell at second slip.
    5/28/2014 3:04:47 PM
  • Over 22 - Sri Lanka 65/8 (Senanayake 0)
    What can Sri Lanka get here? This is carnage.
    5/28/2014 3:05:54 PM
  • Bumble: "It's a daft game this!" - SL 65-9 #EngvSL
  • WICKET! Senanayake c sub (Woakes) b Tredwell 0

    [wicket]Senanayake decides there's no point prodding and poking, and tries to smack Tredwell down the ground. But there's a man out, and sub fielder Woakes takes a smart catch running round from long-on.
    5/28/2014 3:08:51 PM
  • 2 wickets like that! First up Kulasekara who was caught by Tredwell, bowled by Jordan: #EngvSL

  • Over 23 - Sri Lanka 65/9 (Herath 0, Malinga 0)
    Wicket-maiden for Tredwell. Sri Lanka on course for their third-lowest ODI score.
    5/28/2014 3:09:31 PM
  • Next it was Senanayake who was caught by substitute fielder Woakes, bowled by Tredwell:

  • Sri Lanka 67ao! Jordan finishes with career-best figures of 5-29 by trapping last man Malinga lbw #EngvSL
  • And that's it! 5 wickets for Chris Jordan, and Sri Lanka are all out for 67. #EngvSL

  • Jordan becomes the first England bowler to take a 5-for in an ODI at Old Trafford
  • WICKET! Malinga lbw b Jordan 2
    [five-wicket-innings]Sri Lanka been and gone for 67 as Jordan pins Malinga lbw with a ball that skids low. Astonishing performance from both sides - even more so given what happened in the second game of the series. Five wickets for Jordan, who is having quite a summer.
    5/28/2014 3:14:51 PM
  • First time an England bowler has taken 5 wickets at Old Trafford in an ODI - Jordan 5/29
  • Nasser reflects on a shambolic innings from Sri Lanka

    5/28/2014 3:18:58 PM
  • Ouch..... That was quick!! Very tough conditions but did expect a better effort !!! Lots of soft dismissals...
  • This graphic illustrates just how rough a outing Sri Lanka have had. Their third lowest ODI total EVER: #EngvSL

  • Due to Sri Lanka's short-lived innings. The interval will now be at 5.50pm
