Recent Balls:

86.4 - J Leach to S Lakmal

Stock length ball, off stump on the front foot defending, hit pad to. Fourth ball after tea, and Jack Leach does the business for England! New ball, skids on with the arm, and Lakmal plays down the wrong line. Very important that the umpire raised the finger, as Lakmal reviews, and HawkEye says it is only just clipping the top of leg stump.Huge heart shown by Sri Lanka, but once again they are outplayed by this England side. The momentum shifted with that Kusal Mendis run out earlier, otherwise the hosts were on to chase this down. A great Test Match, and even better series. Sri Lanka had moments of excellent cricket, but the consistency lacked. England were positive in their approach, and were very entertaining to watch throughout. A deserved 3-0 whitewash.

85.6 - S Broad to M Pushpakumara

Length ball, outside off stump on the back foot defending, to short extra cover for no runs, fielded by Buttler. Well, who saw this game still going on an hour ago? A remarkable last wicket stand is still giving Sri Lanka hope. They just won't fold. Pushpakumara attacked from ball one, and kept finding the boundary. 43 needed for victory, which still seems a long way off with just one wicket remaining. Can the unimaginable happen? The conclusion of the Test coming up after the break.
