and Jordan has another one. Again it's full, inviting the drive, and Matthews gets a feather through to Buttler who jubilantly celebrates his fourth catch of the innings. Matthews seems unsure and reviews, and while there's nothing on hotspot he hasn't hit the ground and there's a noise. Snicko confirms the very slight edge, and Matthews is on his way. SL 60-6.

things going England's way! Priyanjan pushes into the legside and calls for a single but doesn't seem to realise the danger as Bopara swoops and is dead-on with his throw. Run out by a foot, 65-7.

SL self-destructing here. Senanayake looking to hit Tredwell out of the ground, but gets underneath it too much and Woakes does well, running around from long-on. SL 65-9!

5 for Jordan. This one keeps low and Malinga can't quite get his bat down in time. Hawkeye confirms it would have hit leg stump. SL bowled out for just 67, superb performance from England with the ball clap.

Jordan must be close to playing himself into the Test team with these performances surely? Good stamina today too, 8 overs on the trot.

well that's one of the most one-sided ODIs I've seen for a long time. Bell continues to look in very good form, and it's nice for Cook to get a few runs under his belt too. Can't blame the SL bowlers, they had nothing to work with.

Well done England, great way to bounce back clap.

So , how many are Sri Lanka going to get ? 350 ?

Barring an uncharacteristically great chase by England , it appears this ODI series is going to best of five...

Cook perhaps regretting inserting the opposition.

Indeed. Only following on text , but he does seem to be putting England to the sword , along with Dilshan. Two pretty handy players , to be fair.
I see Dilshan is out now . But you'd think the damage is done , and a big score is on.

Dilshan bowled by Anderson and slated by Botham. Totally unfairly imo. Sure it was a risky scoop shot but it was calculated, had already brought Sri Lanka runs and Sri Lanka could certainly afford to take a risk.

Cook's captaincy looking bereft of ideas today. Almost any skipper can look good when a bowler like Jordan is on fire and taking a fivefer but it's in situations like this (currently 200/2 with 13 left) when Cook needs to come to the fore.

re Cook's captaincy I get where you're coming from but not sure there's a huge amount more he can do with the setup England have. Except in exceptions such as the last game he's almost obliged to bowl Tredwell and Bopara/Root through the vast majority of overs 15-35, and today Sangakkara was simply too good against Tredwell. Cook tried having mid-on, mid-wicket and cover inside the ring at various points, but Sanga simply picked on that fielder.

Gurney's bowled well today, and gets Jayawardene with a good slower ball...

As I said , haven't actually seen this ; but from the figures , the much criticized Tredwell appears to have done a pretty decent job ?

Bopara really bowled poorly I thought

Anderson gets Thirimane again Very Happy

I'm not sure I get the point of Thirimane in the lower middle-order. He's an opener, and IMO if SL think he's not good enough to open he shouldn't be playing. Chandimal a much better option at 5-6-7.

Fifth bowler combination seems to have cost England today - which ,when you think about it , is hardly surprising after Sri Lanka got off to a good start , on what is (presumably) a good batting strip. Having said that , England seem to have come back a bit after the big stand was broken...still going to be a tough chase.

England will be very happy with their work in the last 20 overs of the innings so far. SL were 167-1 after 30, which should really lead to 320 minimum and looking at upto 350, so England will feel they've come back well. Matthews never really got going in that innings, far too many dot balls, and perishes after skying one to Anderson at mid-on.

and Jordan gets another. He's been a little under-par today, maybe struggling with the slope, but is finishing well. Finds the yorker and that's too good for Kulasekera.

that's not a bad shot first up from Senanayake though, length ball from Jordan and it goes straight back over his head for a big six. Lovely strike clap

Impressively dragged back in the last 20 by England. Still going to be a tough chase after a quality stand from two class players in Dilshan and Sanga.

So : 300 it is. At least forty less than looked likely an hour or so ago...chaseable , I guess ?

Not sure I'd be risking the rent money on England getting it  Smile 

Like to see them make a good fist of it though , rather than one of those collapses. Be a good day for a couple of the youngsters to stand up and play an innings...

12-2. Cook again failing and Bell not getting a lot.

Ballance survives. Big chance now for him and Root to show what they have.

Imagine if we had a top order player with some intent. One of the best T20 batsmen going perhaps.

Any thoughts on this team and England's future? Seems they have a long way to go but I'm hoping they can start to turn a corner.

Get Hales in that top 4 somewhere and theres the backbone for a seriously good side going forward.

Top order took too long, took the innings of Buttlers life to get close

Hales is not going to add a backbone, the man for that is James Vince. I agree with adding Hales but surely for Cook rather than to add a backbone

Hales
Vince
Root
?
Morgan

Not sure on who at 4, Ballance is IMO not good enough
