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.

Lasith Malinga to Ben Stokes. Length ball, to leg on the front foot flick, in the air uncontrolled to deep mid wicket for no runs, fielded by Mendis. So close to the catch being taken! Stokes heaves it off the pads out to the sweeper on the legside. Couldn't get the fingers underneath the ball, and Malinga is furious.

OUT! Caught. Isuru Udana to Jofra Archer. Slower length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to long on, by Perera. That should settle things. 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.
