  , BAW Mendis to Woakes, OUT, just as the stand was building, and Bopara needed support, Woakes charges down the pitch and is beaten leaving Sangakkara which a simple stumping. Hang on, the umpire wants to check the no-ball. It's very tight, is anything grounded behind the line? This would be very careless from Mendis. The foot drags forward a touch, and it's ruled to legal. Just.
  , BAW Mendis to Bopara, 1 run, dabbed off the pads to short fine-leg
  , BAW Mendis to Bopara, 2 runs, driven strong through the off side
  , BAW Mendis to Bopara, 2 runs, dropped, and was Mathews put off by Thisara Perera? Bopara top-edged a short delivery, basically a long hop, as he went for the pull...Mathews tracked back from short fine-leg and Perera was running in, probably got into the corner of the captain's eye. He pull off a full-length dive and it didn't stick
  , BAW Mendis to Bopara, 2 runs, short of a length and heaved through the leg side with a pull-whip shot, wide of deep midwicket
  , Herath to Woakes, no run, down the pitch on the line of leg stump to try and open the off side but finds short cover
  , Herath to Bopara, 1 run, skipping out of his crease and but this takes the bottom of the bat towards long off
  , Herath to Woakes, 1 run, drives out to deep cover
  , Herath to Woakes, no run, defended to short cover
  , Herath to Bopara, 1 run, down the pitch again, makes it a very full delivery and clubs towards deepish mid-on
  , Herath to Bopara, no run, drives on the up, and in the air, but it falls short of mid-off
  , BAW Mendis to Woakes, FOUR, a bonus boundary as Woakes drives at a wider delivery and gets a bottom edge through the legs of Sangakkara. Jayawardene chases hard from slip but can't quite flick it back, he signals that it hit the rope
  , BAW Mendis to Bopara, 1 run, moves across his stumps then nudges off his pads to square leg
  , BAW Mendis to Bopara, no run, pats this back down the pitch
  , BAW Mendis to Bopara, 2 runs, well placed into the leg side, good weighting off the clip so it bisects deep midwicket and long on
  , BAW Mendis to Bopara, 2 runs, strong shot, drives sweetly straight down the ground - just past the on side of the stumps - and there's more good fielding as Jeevan Mendis dives around the boundary
  , BAW Mendis to Woakes, 1 run, full on middle, takes an inside edge into square leg
  , Herath to Woakes, 1 run, worked off the stumps into midwicket
  , Herath to Bopara, 1 run, greater aggression this time, down the pitch and drills it along the ground to mid-on
  , Herath to Woakes, 1 run, a good stride forward and a gentle push down the ground
  , Herath to Bopara, 1 run, stays leg-side of the ball, opens the face and dabs into the covers
  , Herath to Bopara, no run, defended back to the bowler
  , Herath to Bopara, no run, full and straight, sweeps to short fine-leg
  , Prasad to Woakes, no run, play and miss outside off, ball doesn't reach Sangakkara on the full
  , Prasad to Woakes, FOUR, full outside off, a controlled edge down to third man and the boundary drought is broken courtesy of a misfield which parries the ball over the rope. Rare error from Sri Lanka in the field
  , Prasad to Bopara, (no ball) 1 run, ooh, this one slips out as a big full toss which Bopara manages to deflect down to third man...perhaps an attempted slower ball. Called a no-ball for height
  , Prasad to Bopara, no run, can't thread the needle, drives off the front foot but finds one of the cover ring
  , Prasad to Bopara, no run, drives on the up again, reasonable connection this time but finds cover
  , Prasad to Bopara, no run, he throws his arms at a wide delivery, aiming for a drive on the up, but doesn't make any contact...more shape away from Prasad
  , Prasad to Bopara, no run, good work by Prasad in his follow through as he intercepts the punch-drive...Bopara had already set off for a run, but managed to abort
