    1.3 they try to steal one, but Curran runs down and boots it into the poles! Euros action here in Cardiff, inside of the right boot, straight into middle stump with Gunathilaka well short! Gareth Bale would approve... Avishka was tucked up, the ball went nowhere and although I presume Gunathilaka called, he was never getting home 6/1
    3.3 short ball, Avishka takes it on... holes out to deep square leg! This was targeting the long boundary out towards the dressing rooms, and it's nowhere near carrying. Livingstone is several yards in and still has to come for it, pouching the catch safely to give Curran one in the wickets column to go with his goal 18/2
    12.3 reverses his stance, attempts the slap through the off-side, and toe-ends his switch-hit into the hands of cover. Limp and Sri Lanka slide again 68/3
    13.2 faster, banged into the hip, flashed high, high, high into Mount Snowdon territory! A swirling top-edge, who wants this? Bairstow bites the bullet and sprints towards square leg, a fling forward and a fine take. Sri Lanka sink again 76/4
    13.3 chipped up, and Wood has two in two! Quick and into the deck. Dickwella attempts the flick but he's shuffling to the leg side as he does so, and it's a simple leading edge, plopping into the hands of cover. Oh dear 76/5
    17.4 hacked hard through the line, but straight at Willey, halfway back at mid-on! More unsophisticated hackery from Shanaka. No base, no power, no chance of clearing the fielder. This is dribbling away fast 90/7
    16.4 stumped by a country mile! Tossed up above the eyeline, Hasaranga gives him the charge, but almost runs straight past it as it dips, bites and bounces past a flailing edge. Bairstow has all night to gather and nudge the bails 87/6

    6.3 slogged down the ground, picks out long-on! SL are cock-a-hoop as another wicket falls, and this is a big one! Hasaranga wins his mini-contest with Roy, who goes four and out, looking to smoke this even further but doesn't get hold of it at all. Shanaka sets himself and swallows the catch 36/4
    1.2 castled third ball! Full inswinger and Bairstow exposes his stumps, loses his wicket! Early breakthrough for Sri Lanka, and they're going to need a few of those, you'd think. Great start from Binura, on the money and rattling middle stump 2/1
    2.3 skids into the pads, SL go up... Alex Wharf shakes his head, maybe pitching outside leg? Perera thinks about it, has a chat, then calls for a review as time ticks down. Malan had gone back into his crease, it's probably hitting leg stump. Did it land on leg stump? YES!! Chameera gets one, and England are in a wee bit of strife now! 8/2
    5.2 width on offer, but Morgan slaps it to backward point! Sri Lanka claim a third wicket in the Powerplay, and England stutter again. There to hit, Morgan latched on to one of his favourite shots... only to send it to Hasaranga at a nice catchable height. Sharp chance, but he grabbed it securely 30/3
    14.3 bowled him! What a trio from Hasaranga. Billings had no answer to any of them. Keeps low as he backs away, looking for a cut through the covers, and off come the bails! 90/5
