91st over: Sri Lanka 242-4 (Mathews 30, Chandimal 20) A beauty from Leach, looping, turning and kicking. Chandimal manages to miss it, and Buttler takes it with the sort of aplomb you associate with Ben Foakes. And that’s lunch, with honours even. England have taken two wickets, including the adhesive Thirimanne. But the other was the nightwatchman, so Sri Lanka still have senior batsmen to dig them out of their hole. Mathews and Chandimal have gone about the job with calm intent.
England’s lead is down to 44, and Joe Root is being conservative with his fields, if not with his bowling changes. He’s used seven bowlers, three of them off-spinners, but only Sam Curran, with his waspish medium pace, has offered a threat. Intriguing stuff. See you in half an hour.
