Sri Lankan made some inroads on DAY-3 but English Batsman dominated the 2nd innings with the bat. Joe Root played an exceptional hand with the bat and scored 228 runs. This was Root’s 3rd double Century in Test cricket.

Johnny Bairstow  missed his half century by 3 runs and got out to L Embuldeniya on 47. Daniel Lawrence played exceptionally well for his 73 and had a good partnership with Joe Root. Lawrence was caught by Mendis on Perera’s delivery.

English innings finished off on 421 runs. Sri Lanka came out to bat and lost three wickets already. Sri Lanka will have to really bat well to save the Test match otherwise for now its looking like England will run away with the show courtesy some brilliant batting by skipper Joe Root.

England vs Sri Lanka DAY04 will be an exciting day where this match might well be decided. England is currently in the driving seat however, Sri Lanka is still in the game and can draw the match if they are able to stretch their innings long enough.

FOUR! Dilruwan Perera to Jonny Bairstow. Off break length ball, down leg side on the front foot sweeping, well timed past deep backward square leg for 4 runs. That's curtains down on the first Test. England has won by seven wickets. Sri Lanka must be killing themselves for not scoring enough in the first innings. Yet the Sri Lankans can pat themselves on the back for coming back strongly and showing great fighting spirit. Joe Root is adjudged as the Player of the Match for his stellar performance with the bat. This is the first time since 1982 that two spinners from England have picked up five wickets in the same match. Join us for the final Test from the same venue on January 22. Until then, Cheers.

OUT! Bowled. Dom Bess to Wanindu Hasaranga. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot reverse sweeping, missed to. You miss, I hit! Hasaranga looks to reverse sweeps this away but misses it completely, and the ball crashes onto the stumps. It's tea on Day 1. Sri Lanka have been bundled out for 135 under 50 overs. For Sri Lanka, Dinesh Chandimal top-scored with 28 and was well supported by Angelo Mathews with 27. Poor batting display from Sri Lanka in the first innings overall and this is the lowest score in the first innings on this ground. On behalf of England, Dominic Bess bagged five wickets to his name. Stuart Broad with three and Jack Leach with a wicket to his name. Excellent bowling display from England bowlers. Join us for England's first innings shortly.

Welcome back to the Day 2 action. England are at 127 for the loss of two wickets, and they trail by eight runs with eight wickets remaining in hand. Can the English batsmen play through the Sri Lankan spin trio and make a big total or Will the Sri Lankan bowlers make inroads? There's a slight drizzle in the morning and the covers are on the field. Good news from the center. Play due to start at 11:10am local time.

OUT! Caught. Jack Leach to Angelo Mathews. Stock length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, outside edge to first slip, by Root. Gotcha! Mathews looks to drive but gets an edge and Root takes a simple catch at first slip. That brings the Sri Lankan innings to an end. Sri Lanka got bowled out for 359. After all the resistance and fight back, Sri Lanka could manage to set just 74 as a target. As for England are concerned only an asteroid attack could stop them from winning this game. Join us England's second innings in about a few minutes.
