Dilruwan Perera to Jos Buttler. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, to point for no runs, fielded by Thirimanne. That's Tea on Day 2. Another session dominated by England as they have piled up more runs. England are now at 320 for the loss of four wickets, and they lead by 185. As far as Sri Lanka are concerned wickets are the need of the hour. That's stumps on Day 2. After the tea break, there is no play due to rain. Tomorrow's morning session will be crucial for both the teams as England will look to post a huge total on the board whereas the host will look for early wickets. Join us tomorrow 15 minutes earlier than usual. Until then, Cheers.

OUT! Bowled. Dom Bess to Wanindu Hasaranga. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot reverse sweeping, missed to. You miss, I hit! Hasaranga looks to reverse sweeps this away but misses it completely, and the ball crashes onto the stumps. It's tea on Day 1. Sri Lanka have been bundled out for 135 under 50 overs. For Sri Lanka, Dinesh Chandimal top-scored with 28 and was well supported by Angelo Mathews with 27. Poor batting display from Sri Lanka in the first innings overall and this is the lowest score in the first innings on this ground. On behalf of England, Dominic Bess bagged five wickets to his name. Stuart Broad with three and Jack Leach with a wicket to his name. Excellent bowling display from England bowlers. Join us for England's first innings shortly.

Another session dominated by England as they have piled up more runs. England are now at 320 for the loss of four wickets, and they lead by 185. As far as Sri Lanka are concerned wickets are the need of the hour. That's stumps on Day 2. After the tea break, there is no play due to rain. Tomorrow's morning session will be crucial for both the teams as England will look to post a huge total on the board whereas the host will look for early wickets. Join us tomorrow 15 minutes earlier than usual. Until then, Cheers.

Welcome back to the Day 2 action. England are at 127 for the loss of two wickets, and they trail by eight runs with eight wickets remaining in hand. Can the English batsmen play through the Sri Lankan spin trio and make a big total or Will the Sri Lankan bowlers make inroads? There's a slight drizzle in the morning and the covers are on the field. Good news from the center. Play due to start at 11:10am local time.
