Quite enjoying Sri Lanka's batting today.  300 lead over England now.

Remove everything left of "England" and you get closer to the true story.

SL 457 all out.  A cracking day's cricket from the Sri Lankans.

 

England need 350, the 8th highest run chase total ever in test cricket to win.

One result is that Cook might get a single game ban after this game due to the slow over rate!  He was fined after the last game and two slow over rate fines in six months gets you a ban.

Yes, the Indian captain was banned for a game in 2012 for a second offence in six months.

If they can take this to a draw, I will eat my shoes... and socks!

Just as well; I'd been out and my socks and shoes were a bit sweaty. Seriously though, Moeen's innings was heroic.

Indeed!  Take no pleasure in seeing England lose but made up for the Sri Lankans, a draw wouldn't have been an injustice.

 

Stunning innings from Moeen though.

Many times in the last few years, England have needed a patient innings to save a match. Moeen was exactly the right player at the right time, which we haven't had very often. Takes a few wickets, too. I think his place in the team is safe for a while now.
