Credit where it's due.  That was a great, instinctive piece of fielding.
Bizarrely the throw actually missed the stumps and hit the stump mic positioned on the ground directly behind.

Didn't see that at the time, but did think it was a bit strange the one bail only just about came off.  After watching it again, that is what happened, the ball missed the stumps.

Itís been a stunning start to the year from Root. Hopefully the first two of 8-10 Test tons.

Well done Joe Root. This could be remembered as the Root v Embuldeniya test match.

This is remarkable, but we donít want to be chasing anymore than 140.

Definitely in the box seat now. Fair play to Leach and Bess for delivering after they bowled poorly in the 1st innings.

Getting Wood into the attack against Embuldinya is so breathtakingly obvious.

Root does the job. Itís in the balance - we could do with the openers getting more than 5 between them.

Coughing up the chance to get a lead (or far closer) yesterday looks like it will be crucial.

Bess batted well with Root. But Wood coming in and trying to go T20 looked horribly misjudged at the time and even moreso now. Durability and backing up the captain was the order of the day, He's a bowler though, so what can you do. Probably should have been batting lower.

In the SL 1st innings, England took all 10 wickets with seam
In the SL 2nd innings, England took all 10 wickets with spin

I wonder if they've ever done that before ?

Sri Lanka had a perfect plan with Embuldeniya as their main weapon but they have messed up their second innings. England will finish this one today.
