89.6
No Runs
Broad to Fernando. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot defending, outside edge to slips for no runs, fielded by Jordan. What an amazing finish to a test match! For 4 and a half days, it looked like a certain draw, but England almost pulled it out of the bag. Plenty of Sri Lankan batsmen hung around frustrating England, including Sangakkara with 61 and Silva with 57. Anderson the pick of the England bowlers in the second innings with 4-25 from 19 overs. Broad chipped in with 3-43, and Jordan with 2-34. This sets up the series finale at Headingley, with the winner of the test match winning the series.

89.5
No Runs
APPEAL! OUT changed by umpire to NOT OUT after REFERRAL. Broad to Fernando. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, inside edge for no runs, appeal made for L.B.W.

Catch
OUT! Caught. Broad to Herath. Short, outside off stump moves in front Fended, Gloved to wicketkeeper, fielded by Prior. Amazing scenes! England have 1 over needing 2 wickets, and Broad gets Herath caught down the legside, with a great catch from Prior. However, replays show if Herath had reviewed it, he would have been in still as his hand was off the bat. Its all down to the Sri Lankan number 11 to survive.
