Looking at that track it's not surprising with our bowlers, we did bowl pretty well against Australia, it was our batting & fielding that went wrong!

Dodgy wicket;)....

Seriously surprising bit of luck for England...Sri Lanka need to get at least 200 to have any chance of winning this but the loss of their top 4 batsmen means its going to be very difficult.

Still England should win this if they can take a few more wickets...the other day they scored over 300 against SA.

Shocked just woke up and saw this score. Then again they have to face malinga the slinger (chucker imo). ALso Ehgland has to bat which in the 7 AUs games was poor, get struss and the team crumbles.

Looks like Sri Lanka have a made a good recovery...140-5...should easily get 200+ now as they have a few wickets in hand.

Terrible bowling by England though...Broad has been absolutely rubbish...even Willis is ripping him a new one by his comments lol...Wright and Collingwood cant seem to make any breakthrough....maybe a good thing though as the conditions might suit the English batsmen.

Tut tut whats going on here...bit of drama...looks like Strauss or the umpires have called back the batter...shouldnt have been a run out anyways as the bowler definitely impeded his run...good sportsmanship by Strauss.

completely confused over that run out. hehe, oh well wright get a run out so they are 8 down now for 163.

They would have been 7 down if Strauss hadnt called back the bowler...at the moment they are 6 down:)

Nevermind Mathews out now anyways....Wright finally gets a wicket....all going wrong for Sri Lanka at the moment.

Do you know the rules of cricket? Matthews was at fault there for ball watching, Onions was just returning to the stumps.

Yes i do know the rules thank you very much...anyhow doesnt matter as Mathews was out in the next over so it all evens out...kudos to Strauss for telling him to come back though...very sportsmanlike unlike Collingwood a yr ago against NZ when the same thing happened.

Murali just making me laugh with his smack out of the ground strokes...goes for it again and is dropped lol....

Almost had a hat trick too....good recovery by Sri Lanka to get over 200...it will be interesting to see how SL bowlers will fare and how the english batsmen will go about getting the target...
