  • Over 18 - Sri Lanka 36/0 (Karunaratne 23, Silva 12)
    England start looking for a change of ball, handing it to the umpires who decide that they should carry on with it for now. Jordan concedes just one from the over when he oversteps the mark for a no-ball.

  • Over 19 - Sri Lanka 36/0 (Karunaratne 23, Silva 12)
    [umpire-review]The umpires bring out the measuring hoops and England do now get their wish when the apparently out-of-shape ball is changed. Liam Plunkett comes on for the first time and sends the 'new' ball rearing up over Silva's head off a good length! There is then an appeal for lbw as a full toss thuds into the pads of Silva. It is given not out but Cook decides to review, although Hawk Eye shows it is going well down the leg side and the batsman survives. Maiden over.

  • Strauss questions that review from former team-mate Prior...
    [andrewstrauss] The review was a shocker from Matt Prior but Plunkett can be happy with that opening over

  • Over 20 - Sri Lanka 39/0 (Karunaratne 25, Silva 13)
    Silva edges Jordan into the slips but the ball bounces short of Ian Bell and the batsman run a single. Karunaratne grabs a single either side of that delivery to make it three from the over.

  • Silva c Prior b Plunkett 13
    [wicket]Plunkett has the breakthrough in his second over! Silva is forced to play at one which shapes in towards his stumps and gets an edge behind to wicket-keeper Prior, who takes in the simple catch.

  • Andrew describes the breakthrough wicket of Silva:
    [andrewstrauss] Brilliant delivery from Plunkett! Shaping away, fourth/fifth stump, a bit of movement off the seam - that was perfect, and well-taken by Prior

  • Over 21 - Sri Lanka 52/1 (Karunaratne 26, Sangakkara 7)
    Plunkett welcomes Kumar Sangakkara to the crease with a fine bouncer but the new batsman manages to fend it away through midwicket for a couple. Plunkett then lets go of a wide full toss which doesn't even pitch on the wicket and trickles away through the slips and down to the ropes for five wides before Sangakkara puts one away through the covers for four runs off the bat.

  • Over 22 - Sri Lanka 52/1 (Karunaratne 26, Sangakkara 7)
    Jordan keeps things tight and Sangakkara looks to leave wherever possible over the course of a maiden over.

  • Over 23 - Sri Lanka 57/1 (Karunaratne 27, Sangakkara 11) 
    Karunaratne tries to drive through the covers off Plunkett but only succeeds in sending a thick inside edge towards midwicket, allowing him to run a single. Sangakkara then show his fellow left-hander how to do it, steering a great cover drive to the ropes for four.

  • Over 24 - Sri Lanka 61/1 (Karunaratne 31, Shangakkara 11)
    Karunaratne has two more lucky escapes, just getting his bat inside the line of a jaffa from Jordan and then flashing an edge over the slips and down to the third man boundary for four - the only runs of the over.

  • Over 25 - Sri Lanka 61/1 (Karunaratne 31, Sangakkara 11)
    Broad is brought back into the attack and starts his spell with a maiden over as Sangakkara opts to defend and leave. Time for drinks.

  • Over 26 - Sri Lanka 62/1 (Karunaratne 32, Sangakkara 11)
    Jordan continues after the drinks break, sending down an uneventful over which starts with five dot balls before Karunaratne dabs a single into the leg side off the fifth delivery.

  • Over 27 - Sri Lanka 69/1 (Karunaratne 35, Sangakkara 15)
    Karunaratne gets three when he sends a thickish inside edge through the leg side before Sangakkara times another one through the covers to send the ball away for his third four. Seven runs come from the final two deliveries of Broad's over after it started with seven dot balls.

  • Superb video from @SkyCricket thank you for the time & effort to showcase the work @PCA do in a number of different angles #CricketUnited
  • Over 28 - Sri Lanka 72/1 (Karunaratne 37, Sangakkara 15)
    Plunkett comes back into the attack and starts with a wide as he bangs in a bouncer which flies well over the head of Karunaratne, who then plays and misses at a tempter wide of off stump. He plays the next ball a lot better, pushing it through backward point for a couple.

  • Over 29 - Sri Lanka 78/1 (Karunaratne 42, Sangakkara 16)
    Sangakkara flicks a single down to fine leg before and Karunaratne grabs two before the latter edges another one through the gully area, although it does not have enough pace to reach the boundary and the batsmen run three.

  • Over 30 - Sri Lanka 84/1 (Karunaratne 43, Sangakkara 17)
    Plunkett slings a messy delivery down leg side, the ball bouncing in front of Prior, deceiving the wicket-keeper and heading down to the boundary for four byes. Karunaratne and Sangakkara then trade singles to make it six from the over.

    Broad sends down a maiden to Sangakkara, who timed another drive well but drilled it straight to the fielder.

    Plunkett continues and concedes just two runs from the over - Karunaratne tucking one away through the off side and Sangakkara doing the same through the on side.

    Sanagakkara flicks Broad away off his leg stump for two runs before taking three more at the end of the over as he works one away between mid-on and midwicket.

  • Over 34 - Sri Lanka 93/1 (Karunaratne 45, Sangakkara 24)
    England opt for spin for the first time as Moeen Ali comes into the attack and sees his first over worked away for two singles by Sangakkara and Karunaratne.

  • Karunaratne c Prior b Plunkett 45
    [wicket]Plunkett is back on after switching ends and has Karunaratne caught behind down the leg side after a short delivery brushes the left-hander's glove on the way through to Prior. Billy Bowden gives it out and Karunaratne reviews but replays show the glove was still in contact with the bat when the ball hit it. Karunaratne is gone for a streaky 45.

  • Mikey explains Karunaratne's decision to review his dismissal:
    [michaelholding] He knows the ball hit his glove but reviewed the decision because he wanted to check if his hand was off the bat at the moment of impact.

  • Over 35 - Sri Lanka 94/2 (Sangakkara 24, Jayawardene 1)
    The trusty duo of Sangakkar and Mahela Jayawardene is now at the crease, the latter getting off the mark with a single through the leg side.

  • Over 36 - Sri Lanka 95/2 (Sangakkara 24, Jayawardene 2)
    There is a big appeal for lbw from the returning Jordan but Jayawardene's thick inside edge and the height count against it. Another pull down to fine leg earns Jayawardene another single, which turns out to be the only run from the over.

  • Over 37 - Sri Lanka 96/2 (Sangakkara 24, Jayawardene 3)
    There is a noise as Jayawardene plays one from Plunkett through to Prior but it turns out that it was the ball brushing against the batsman's sweater. The right-hander then goes for another pull but misjudges it badly, looping it into the air only for the ball to fall safe in front of Mooen, who was running round from deep midwicket.

  • Over 38 - Sri Lanka 99/2 (Sangakkara 26, Jayawardene 3)
    Jayawardene has to react quickly when Jordan gets one to nip back into him from well outside off stump. Wicket-keeper Prior then cops a nasty one on the wrist when diving to try and take a delivery which flicked off Jayawardene's pads and went down the leg side for a leg bye. Sangakkara ends the afternoon session with a dabble through the off side for two

  • TEA
    [tea]So that is it for the afternoon session. England removed both openers during it but Sri Lanka are very much still in the match after reaching the break just nine runs behind with Sangakkara and Jayawardene at the crease.

  • Over 39 - Sri Lanka 103/2 (Sangakkara 28, Jayawardene 4)
    Sri Lanka pass the 100 mark via a leg bye before Plunkett gets one to die off the surface and bounce below Sangakkaras expectant bat. A misfield from Anderson then allows the batsmen to run the first of three singles to come from the over.

  • Over 40 - Sri Lanka 105/2 (Sangakkara 29, Jayawardene 4)
    Jordan opens up at the other end after tea and sees his first ball cut away through backward point for a single by Sangakkara. He then concedes a leg bye as two runs come from the over.

  • Over 41 - Sri Lanka 110/2 (Sangakkara 33, Jayawardene 5)
    Jayawardene runs a single off Plunkett before Sangakkara plays and misses when fishing at a short one outside off stump. A drive from the left-hander then gets past Moeen at short cover and trickles away to the boundary for four. Sangakkara defends the final two deliveries of the over. The tourists are now two runs ahead with two wickets down.

    Jordan does well to keep Jayawardene blocking on the back foot and completes his third maiden over of the innings.

    The two batsmen trade singles to start the over and Sangakkara adds another later in the over when he plays Plunkett away to deep point before Jayawardene ends the over with a fourth single.
