    • 47.0Over 47. 9 runs. Bowler: Nuwan Pradeep. England: 212/10(rr 4.51)
    • 46.6OUT! Caught. Nuwan Pradeep to Mark Wood. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, outside edge to wicketkeeper, by Perera. Tiny nick, and Sri Lanka win! One ball to bowl at Mark Wood, and Pradeep gets it spot on. Lovely line and length, Wood hangs the bat out, and Perera gobbles up the edge to seal things.

      What a game of cricket that was. High drama till the very end. England were extremely poor with the bat, apart from Joe Root and Ben Stokes, but huge credit must go to Sri Lanka. No one expected them to pull off this victory. Lasith Malinga stood up for his team and took four important wickets, and that gave them the belief to get those two points. Remarkable win, which certainly blows things wide open in this tournament.

      Hopefully the games will continue like that for the rest of the competition! Tomorrow we have two World Cup games on. India take on Afghanistan, and West Indies take on New Zealand. Should be another good day for cricket.
    • 46.5Nuwan Pradeep to Ben Stokes. Half volley, down leg side on the front foot flick, to deep mid wicket for 1 run, fielded by Mendis.
    • 46.4Nuwan Pradeep to Ben Stokes. Full toss, off stump on the front foot driving, to deep extra cover for no runs, fielded by Fernando.
    • 46.3FOUR! Nuwan Pradeep to Ben Stokes. Length ball, to leg moves in front Slog, well timed past fine leg for 4 runs. Steps across his stumps, a huge swing to leg, and he gets it away off the inner half of the bat past short fine leg.
    • 46.2FOUR! Nuwan Pradeep to Ben Stokes. Full toss, outside off stump on the front foot flick, well timed past long on for 4 runs. Low full toss, Stokes whips this away powerfully, and long on cannot get round to cut it off. A few more boundaries might make this interesting.
    • 46.1Nuwan Pradeep to Ben Stokes. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to long on for no runs, fielded by Perera.
    • 46.0Over 46. 15 runs. Bowler: Isuru Udana. England: 203/9(rr 4.41)
    • 45.6Isuru Udana to Mark Wood. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, to point for no runs, fielded by Fernando.
    • 45.5Isuru Udana to Ben Stokes. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, to deep cover for 1 run, fielded by Mendis.

    • 45.3Isuru Udana to Ben Stokes. Slower ball, down the track driving, to long off for no runs, fielded by Perera.
    • 45.2SIX! Isuru Udana to Ben Stokes. Length ball, outside off stump down the track driving, well timed in the air under control over long off for 6 runs. Six more! Stokes charges out the crease, and dispatches it over long off this time. What a strike.
    • 45.1SIX! Isuru Udana to Ben Stokes. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control over long on for 6 runs. Bang! Right in the slot for Stokes, and he launches this deep into the crowd. Big swing, and a pure connection. Lovely.
    • 45.0Over 45. 2 runs. Bowler: Lasith Malinga. England: 188/9(rr 4.18)
    • 44.6Lasith Malinga to Ben Stokes. Half volley, to leg on the front foot flick, to backward square leg for 1 run, fielded by Mendis.
    • 44.5Lasith Malinga to Ben Stokes. Length ball, to leg on the front foot flick, in the air uncontrolled to deep mid wicket for no runs, fielded by Mendis. So close to the catch being taken! Stokes heaves it off the pads out to the sweeper on the legside. Couldn't get the fingers underneath the ball, and Malinga is furious.
    • 44.4Lasith Malinga to Ben Stokes. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot flick, to long on for no runs, fielded by Perera.
    • 44.3Wide Lasith Malinga to Ben Stokes. Off cutter half volley, wide outside off stump no foot movement Leave, Left to wicketkeeper for 1 run, fielded by Perera.

    • 43.6Isuru Udana to Mark Wood. Length ball, outside off stump no foot movement Leave, Left to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Perera.
    • 43.5Isuru Udana to Mark Wood. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot defending, to deep cover for no runs, fielded by Mendis.
    • 43.4OUT! Caught. Isuru Udana to Jofra Archer. Slower length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to long on, by Perera. That should settle things. Still another 47 runs to get for England and they just have one wicket remaining. Out the back of the hand from Udana, Jofra's eyes light up, and he attempts to bludgeon it out the ground. Off the bottom end of the bat, and a simple take for long on.
    • 43.3Isuru Udana to Jofra Archer. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to short extra cover for no runs, fielded by Karunaratne.
    • 43.2Isuru Udana to Ben Stokes. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed to long on for 1 run, fielded by Fernando.

    • 40.6Dhananjaya de Silva to Jofra Archer. Off break length ball, off stump on the back foot working, leading edge to short extra cover for no runs, fielded by Karunaratne.
    • 40.5OUT! Caught. Dhananjaya de Silva to Adil Rashid. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the back foot pushing, outside edge to wicketkeeper, by Perera. Three for Dhananjaya! Sri Lanka are delighted! It's similar to the Woakes wicket. Rashid was playing for turn, didn't get it, and there's a thin edge through to the Perera. A more routine take for the keeper, who mops up well. The visitors just need two more wickets!
    • 40.4Dhananjaya de Silva to Ben Stokes. Off break back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot driving, to deep extra cover for 1 run, fielded by Mendis.
    • 40.3Dhananjaya de Silva to Ben Stokes. Off break length ball, off stump on the front foot defending, to silly mid on for no runs, fielded by de Silva.

    • 40.1OUT! Caught. Dhananjaya de Silva to Chris Woakes. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, outside edge to wicketkeeper, by Perera. Nicked and gone! It's a wonderful take by the keeper standing up. Woakes flashes outside his off stump, not much turn, and it deflects off the willow into the Kusal's hands. Sri Lanka on top now?
    • 40.0Over 40. 5 runs. Bowler: Nuwan Pradeep. England: 176/6(rr 4.40)
    • 39.6Nuwan Pradeep to Ben Stokes. Full toss, middle stump on the front foot working, to short mid wicket for no runs, fielded by Karunaratne.
    • 39.5Nuwan Pradeep to Ben Stokes. Length ball, down leg side on the front foot working, to short mid wicket for no runs, fielded by Karunaratne.

    • 39.3Nuwan Pradeep to Ben Stokes. Length ball, to leg on the front foot defending, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Fernando.
    • 39.2FOUR! Nuwan Pradeep to Ben Stokes. Length ball, down leg side on the back foot defending, outside edge past third man for 4 runs. Edged, but no catchers in place, and the ball runs away to the third man boundary. That's the fifty up for Stokes. Brilliant knock from him today. If he's there till the end, England win.
    • 39.1Nuwan Pradeep to Chris Woakes. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pushing, to deep cover for 1 run, fielded by Tillakaratna.

    • 38.3OUT! Caught. Dhananjaya de Silva to Moeen Ali. Off break length ball, outside off stump down the track driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to long off, by Tillakaratna. But the pressure goes right back onto England! Adrenaline high for Moeen, and he cannot help himself. Dances down to hit it out the park again, but doesn't get a good connection. Miscued down to long off, and Udana swallows it up.
    • 38.2SIX! Dhananjaya de Silva to Moeen Ali. Off break half volley, middle stump on the front foot slog sweeping, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs. That will release some pressure. Moeen sweeps from the stumps, and goes big! Swatted over the legside and it hits the boundary on the full.
    • 38.1Dhananjaya de Silva to Moeen Ali. Quicker length ball, outside off stump on the back foot pushing, to backward point for no runs, fielded by Malinga.
    • 38.0Over 38. 5 runs. Bowler: Thisara Perera. England: 164/5(rr 4.32)

    • 35.6Thisara Perera to Moeen Ali. Length ball, middle stump on the front foot driving, to deep cover for 1 run, fielded by Fernando.

      As the game progresses, the drama increases. It can still go either way. This is what the cricket fans want to see. Great stuff.
    • 35.5Thisara Perera to Moeen Ali. Length ball, to leg on the front foot pushing, to extra cover for no runs.
    • 35.4Thisara Perera to Ben Stokes. Length ball, to leg on the front foot pushing, to long on for 1 run.

    • 33.2FOUR! Thisara Perera to Ben Stokes. Back of a length, down leg side on the back foot working, well timed past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Timed the pants off of that! Stokes nudges it off the pads through mid wicket, and it races across the outfield to the mid wicket fence.
    • 33.1Thisara Perera to Ben Stokes. Back of a length, down leg side on the back foot defending, to short extra cover for no runs, fielded by Karunaratne.
    • 33.0Over 33. 4 runs. Bowler: Lasith Malinga. England: 144/5(rr 4.36)

    • 32.3OUT! L.B.W. Lasith Malinga to Jos Buttler. Yorker, middle stump on the front foot flick, hit pad to. Malinga has four. He is single-handedly doing the job for Sri Lanka. Buttler tries to clip this off the toes, but the ball sneaks underneath the bat to smash into the boot. Review taken by England, but it's stone dead. Three reds on HawkEye. This could go down to the wire!
    • 32.2FOUR! Lasith Malinga to Jos Buttler. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed past deep backward square leg for 4 runs. Buttler latches onto that length, rocks backs, and slaps this behind square for four.
    • 32.1Lasith Malinga to Jos Buttler. Half volley, middle stump on the front foot driving, to mid on for no runs, fielded by Mendis.
    • 32.0Over 32. 9 runs. Bowler: Thisara Perera. England: 140/4(rr 4.38)
    • 31.6FOUR! Thisara Perera to Ben Stokes. Length ball, to leg on the front foot Steer, outside edge past third man for 4 runs. A little lucky from Stokes. He looks to run it down to third man, but edges just past the dive of the keeper. Handy boundary for England, though.
    • 31.5Thisara Perera to Jos Buttler. Length ball, outside off stump moves in front pushing, to deep cover for 1 run.
    • 31.4Thisara Perera to Ben Stokes. Length ball, middle stump on the front foot Steer, to third man for 1 run, fielded by Malinga.

    • 30.3OUT! Caught. Lasith Malinga to Joe Root. Length ball, middle stump on the front foot glancing, inside edge to wicketkeeper, by Perera. Root gets a faint one on it down the legside, and Kusal Perera snaps it up to give Sri Lanka a crucial wicket. A shake of the head from the umpire originally, but the review quickly changed it to the correct decision. Clear noise as it passed the bat. The game hangs in the balance again.
    • 30.2Lasith Malinga to Ben Stokes. Off cutter length ball, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, to deep cover for 1 run.
    • 30.1Lasith Malinga to Ben Stokes. Off cutter length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Leave, Left to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Perera.
