26.6 Dhananjaya de Silva to Eoin Morgan

FOUR! Dhananjaya de Silva to Eoin Morgan. Off break back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Morgan pounces on one slightly back of a length as the clouds begin to burst. The grounstaff leap into action to try and cover the playing area. As it stands England are comfortably ahead of the DLS par score, but let's hope this isn't the end of the action for today. Sri Lanka will be really regretting that no-ball from a few overs ago, that could have really changed the complexion of the match.

22.1 Dhananjaya de Silva to Joe Root

No ball Dhananjaya de Silva to Joe Root. Off break full toss, down leg side on the front foot sweeping, top edge in the air uncontrolled to short fine leg for 1 run, fielded by Malinga. Oh dear - all sorts going on here, most of it pretty ordinary cricket. First of all it's a filthy full toss that should be spanked to the boundary, but somehow Root tamely top edges it to short fine leg. Sri Lanka think they have their man but it's called a no-ball, not for height but for too few fielders up in the circle. Awful stuff all round.
