Commentary
  • wicket: OUT! L.B.W. Verified by umpire after REFERRAL. Akila Dananjaya to Liam Plunkett. Googly length ball, outside off stump on the back foot Late Cut, hit pad to. That looks close! Plunkett doesn't pick the googly and Aleem Dar gives him out. Plunkett opts to review but here comes the rain! It's hammering down and the players are running for cover. On come the sheets. TV proceed with the review, no bat and hitting the stumps so Plunkett is out. Aleem Dar raises his finger once more as he runs for cover!

That's the end of a brave innings from Stokes. He played some glorious shots but he was really struggling with cramp in these humid conditions. Don't forget he was in in only the second over of the innings so only had half an hour or so to recover after bowling and fielding. Akila tossing the ball up making him reach for it and he didn't get enough of it to clear the ropes.

  • 19.2 - FOUR! Lakshan Sandakan to Ben Stokes. Chinaman length ball, outside off stump on the front foot slog sweeping, well timed past long on for 4 runs. Crunched through the legside. It looks like cramp that Stokes is struggling with but if anything that's making him more dangerous at the moment!

Goes for the big hit legside, perhaps he thought it was the leg spinner. It wasn't, it was the googly and hitting against the spin Moeen got a top edge that went up in the air and Chandimal did well to cover some ground and take the catch diving forward. That will be painful as his elbows and knees dragged along a hard wicket on the edge of the square.

  • 15.2 - FOUR! Lakshan Sandakan to Ben Stokes. Chinaman length ball, outside off stump on the front foot reverse sweeping, past third man for 4 runs. Gets it fine past the keeper and the ball beats the fielder to the rope.

  • 15.1 - FOUR! Lakshan Sandakan to Ben Stokes. Googly back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. A long hop first up, put away with ease by Stokes who is struggling with his running after being hit just above the knee earlier.

In the meantime Stokes is frozen at the striker's end and is almost run out as the batsmen cross! A direct hit and he was well short! Now Sri Lanka want to review the LBW. It looked like it was smashing into the stumps so the question here is where it pitched. It's just outside! Good decision from Aleem Dar.

Out! That's out! Buttler is gone! We're only in the second over and the England captain is gone! Sri Lanka are in dreamland! Good pace from Chameera, Buttler shuffled his feet to try and cover his stumps but the ball bounced on him and he feathered it through to the keeper. What a start to the second innings here in Colombo.

  • 1.3 - Dushmantha Chameera to Jos Buttler. Out-swinging length ball, off stump on the front foot working, to square leg for no runs, fielded by Sandakan.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Dushmantha Chameera to Alex Hales. Out-swinging length ball, outside off stump no foot movement pushing, outside edge in the air uncontrolled to first slip, by Mendis. Gone! What a catch! England are reeling! Lovely shape from Chameera, no footwork from Hales facing just his second ball and Kusal Mendis takes a fantastic catch. He was fielding at a very wide slip position and took this one diving back to his left. Sri Lanka right on top here now.

  • 1.1 - NEW BALL. Dushmantha Chameera to Alex Hales. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed to point for no runs, fielded by Perera.

  • wicket: OUT! Bowled. Kasun Rajitha to Jason Roy. Yorker, off stump on the front foot pushing, missed to. Cleaned him up! Great yorker from Rajitha knocks back off stump! Roy was squared up and completely beaten and doesn't hang around. What a start here for Sri Lanka!

  • 49.6 - SIX! Tom Curran to Dhananjaya de Silva. Length ball, off stump on the front foot Slog, well timed in the air under control over long on for 6 runs. That's well struck, a massive six and Sri Lanka leave the field with big smiles on their faces. That is their highest ever ODI score against England. All of the top four made half centuries and England's seamers struggled. England's fielding too was poor, they dropped two or three easy catches and gave away probably another 15 runs in the field. Someone will have to play a very good innings indeed for England to win this match now.

  • 49.5 - Tom Curran to Akila Dananjaya. Slower ball back of a length, down leg side on the back foot Slog, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to extra cover for 1 run, dropped catch by Ali.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Tom Curran to Thisara Perera. Slower ball back of a length, middle stump on the front foot Slog, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to deep mid wicket, by Hales. And again! Almost a mirror image of the previous ball with Perera being a left-hander. This time it's Hales who pouches the catch. It was another slower ball bowled into the pitch and Perera just couldn't hit it hard enough to get it over the ropes. Not the smartest bit of cricket.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Tom Curran to Dinesh Chandimal. Slower ball back of a length, outside off stump on the front foot pulling, in the air uncontrolled to deep mid wicket, by Roy. No pace on the ball and Chandimal can't muscle it all the way for six. Roy is out there on the boundary and it's hit straight to him and he takes another catch.

Dickwella is gone! Just five short of a century. It was a bit of a rush of blood as he came down the track but rather than playing the nice controlled drive he has been doing he tried to smash it out of the ground. The ball turned and took a thick edge and looped up for an easy catch.
