OUT! 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.

FOUR! 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.

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.

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!

OUT! Caught. Lasith Malinga to James Vince. Out-swinging length ball, off stump on the front foot driving, outside edge to second slip, by Mendis. Malinga keeps it full, and Vince is out driving again! Hooping away from the right hander, a flashing blade, and the edge is snaffled up nicely by second slip. Wonderful start for Sri Lanka, and it certainly is game on now!

OUT! L.B.W. Lasith Malinga to Jonny Bairstow. Out-swinging length ball, middle stump on the front foot working, hit pad to. There is the early wicket that Sri Lanka wanted! Bairstow is gone first ball. Malinga flings it down, the Yorkshireman plays across his front pad, and he cannot get any bat on it. Up goes the finger, and a review is used. HawkEye says it is just clipping leg stump. Good enough!

Jofra Archer to Angelo Mathews. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Buttler. A professional job from England done there. Excellent with the ball, and razor sharp in the field too. Contributions throughout the team, and they have restricted the total to a very chasable one. Sri Lanka weren't at their best. Angelo Mathews the only man to stick it out and grind some runs for his side. They need some early wickets to get the nerves going in the England dressing room. The hosts are in command at the halfway mark.
