Catch
OUT! Caught. Eranga to Anderson. Short, down leg side on the back foot Fended, Gloved in the air uncontrolled to square leg, fielded by Herath. Unbelievable drama at Headingley with only two balls left in the Test match, Eranga strikes and Sri Lanka win by 100 runs. Eranga bangs the ball in short and Anderson fends the ball off but he gloves it and the ball loops up to Herath at square leg and Sri Lanka go wild! Anderson is dejected but he has played brilliant to defend for over an hour.

What an end to an unbelievable final day at Headingley, Sri Lanka have won their first Test series in England and they fully deserve all the praise because Mathews and his players have played some fantastic cricket over the last few days. On the flip side England and Cook will be bitterly disappointed, England looked lethargic in the field yesterday and allowed Sri Lanka to build a commanding 350 run lead thanks to an outstanding 160 from Mathews. Then a blistering spell from Prasad last night where he picked up four wickets for 10 runs and England never recovered. England fought until the very end tonight with Ali scoring a brave 108 not out but it just wasn't enough. England have dropped to fifth in the ICC Test Rankings after this defeat.

OUT! L.B.W. Verified by umpire after REFERRAL. Herath to Jordan. Quicker ball half volley, off stump on the front foot defending, hit pad. Herath has the breakthrough and Sri Lanka are on the brink now. Herath gets the ball to drift in to Jordan and Jordan cannot get his bat down in time. The ball wraps him on the pads infront of middle and it looks plum. The finger goes up and Jordan reviews out of desperation more than anything. The replay shows the ball is crashing into middle, Jordan has to go.

Catch
OUT! Caught. Herath to Plunkett. Stock length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to cover, fielded by Fernando. Plunkett has just given his wicket away, with only four balls of day four to go Plunkett plays a poor drive and it just loops up to Pradeep at cover who takes an easy catch. It was good bowling from Herath he got this ball to grip and Plunkett didn't pick it.

That will be stumps on day four and it has been a truly shocking day for England they just ran out of ideas in the field and let Sri Lanka post a formidable total. Angelo Mathews played one of the great Test innings and scored a career best 160. However, he was dropped on 83 by Plunkett. Then England have crumbled in the last hour, they have lost five wickets for 20 runs. On the flip side Sri Lanka have been brilliant, they were fearless with the bat and Prasad has ripped through the England top order. England must come back tomorrow with some fight and desire to win the match.

Good morning and welcome to the final day of this deciding Test match between England and Sri Lanka at Headingley. Today could be a historic one for Sri Lanka as they could seal their first ever series win in England. On the flip side England are in deep trouble at 57/5 and are desperate to get something positive out of this game. That is looking very unlikely because they require another 293 runs to win and only have five wickets left. The weather is set fair for the day so England must fight out of this situation themselves. Play is coming up in five minutes.

Anderson to Eranga. Half volley, off stump on the front foot pushing, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Prior. A very interesting decision from Billy Bowden. Anderson pitches the ball up and it looks like Eranga nicks off to Prior, England don't even appeal they are that sure of it. However, Billy Bowden shakes his head and England don't have any reviews left after they wasted them earlier. Unbelievable.

Run Out
OUT! Run Out. Ali to Mathews. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, to mid on, direct hit by Root. England have the breakthrough and it has come from a comedy of errors from Mathews and Herath. Mathews wants to go for a quick single to get his 150. However, the ball goes straight to Root at mid on and Mathews calls Herath back. Root takes aim and directly hits the stumps with Herath a long way down the pitch.

That will be tea at Headingley and England are on their knees, Sri Lanka have taken the life out of them in this session. Mathews has played a wonderful knock and he will be looking to attack after tea.

Start Of Over
Good morning and welcome to Headingley for day 4 of this deciding Test match between England and Sri Lanka. The Test match is evenly poised with Sri Lanka leading by 106 with six second innings wickets remaining. It is a beautiful sunny day here at Headingley and if Sri Lanka can get a lead of 220 plus then it will be a very interesting chase for England. The morning session today is crucial, whoever wins it will be in the driving seat in the Test match. This should be a cracking day, play is coming up in five minutes.

72.6
Leg Bye
Jordan to Jayawardene. Length ball, middle stump moves in front glancing, hit body to fine leg for no runs, fielded by Ali. This has been Sri Lanka's day. They blew away the England tail early on and set about eating into the first innings deficit. England's bowlers struggled to find consistency which allowed Sri Lanka to build a lead of 106 by stumps. With six wickets left, they will probably sleep better than England tonight. The new ball is seven overs away and England will come out in the morning determined to take wickets. They will not want to be chasing anything near 250.

Bowden has given it but the batsman has reviewed it. It looks like it's hit the glove, with his hand still on the bat and replays show it has. Plunkett has another with his short pitch bowling. Not the best ball he's ever bowled but a crucial breakthrough. A wicket out of nowhere. Can this lift them?

Textbook from Kumar, he makes it look so easy, hitting it on the up and racing away to the boundary. If he makes 50 he will equal a world record of seven consecutive half centuries in test innings.

Anderson to Karunaratne. Out-swinging length ball, off stump on the front foot pushing, outside edge to slips for no runs, dropped catch by Jordan. The first chance and Jordan has shelled it.

Wide enough to hit and he does not miss out taking the chance to get some runs on the board.

Start of Innings
Start of Sri Lanka Innings. Anderson and Broad will be running in at full speed with lunch just 50 minutes away. Can they strike early? The slip cordon will have to be alert as the ball should be moving around early on. The clouds have just come over the ground which will encourage the bowlers even more.

Catch
OUT! Caught & Bowled. Eranga to Anderson. Short, middle stump on the front foot Fended, in the air uncontrolled to silly mid on. A good bouncer aimed straight at Anderson.

Catch
OUT! Caught. Mathews to Broad. Back of a length, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, thick edge in the air uncontrolled to gully, fielded by Thirimanne.

Start Of Over
At one stage yesterday England were marching towards an imposing lead. Whilst that is still possible, the Sri Lankan fightback with the new ball yesterday means things are more delicately placed then seemed likely yesterday afternoon. If Prior and Jordan can survive the first few overs then England can have a go and aim for a lead of 150+. If Sri Lanka can squeeze some wickets early on and restrict England's lead to 100 then they are still in the game, particularly as they have Herath bowling on a dry pitch in the fourth innings.

103.6
One Run
Fernando to Jordan. Seaming away back of a length, middle stump on the back foot pushing, outside edge to backward point for 1 run, fielded by Thirimanne. Sri Lanka were staring down the barrel of a big first innings deficit but the last hour has changed the complexion of the day and possibly the match. The new ball was always going to be the key and the bowlers, who earlier in the day had let their captain down by not maintaining consistent line and lengths, came up with some good, disciplined bowling at the end of the day. However, England have built a lead of 63 and there is always something in the pitch for the bowlers at Headingley, so they are in a strong position. This day will be remembered for Sam Robson's maiden test match century. He batted superbly and was still at the crease when England overtook Sri Lanka's first innings score.

Catch
OUT! Caught. Mathews to Root. Seaming away length ball, off stump on the front foot pushing, outside edge to wicketkeeper, fielded by Chandimal. That's two quick wickets and like Bell, Root is furious. The ball did not do that much but he was unsure as to whether it was coming in or going away. The result was a soft edge to the keeper.

England are slowly putting themselves into a position of authority in this game. The new ball is due in eight overs and Sri Lanka desperately need some wickets.

71.6
No Runs
Mathews to Robson. Length ball, off stump on the front foot driving, to mid off for no runs, fielded by Fernando. England have put themselves into a position of authority, led by Robson who has batted with an authority and maturity. In particular he has splayed Herath very well, moving his feet with confidence. He needs two for a maiden test century. England scored 105 runs in that session for the loss of just one wicket.

Four Runs
FOUR! Mathews to Robson. Length ball, middle stump on the front foot Steer, well timed past third man for 4 runs. A good shot from Robson who moves closer to a century. Can he do it before tea? If not, it will be a nervous time for him.

67.4
No Runs
Mathews to Bell. Out-swinging short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Chandimal. First up he gets a short and wide one and can not resisit having a go. It did not bounce as much as he expected and he played over the top of it.

67.3
Catch
OUT! Caught. Mathews to Ballance. Out-swinging length ball, off stump on the front foot defending, outside edge to wicketkeeper, fielded by Chandimal. The end of a fine knock from Ballance on his home ground. Matthews was bowling wicket to wicket and this one catches a thin edge to the keeper for a simple catch.

Prasad to Ballance. Reverse swinging half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed to deep cover for 1 run, fielded by Karunaratne. He is bowling full as there is a hint of reverse swing. However he needs to be bowling in the corridor. He is too wide at the moment.

61.6
No Runs
Prasad to Robson. Reverse swinging full toss, middle stump on the front foot defending, to cover for no runs, fielded by Thirimanne. Prasad is finding some movement and not bowling no balls, unlike Pradeep. Replays are suggesting this ball hit the pad first and would have crashed into the stumps. However none of the players even thought about appealing.

60.5
No Runs
Herath to Ballance. Stock length ball, middle stump on the front foot pushing, inside edge to short leg for no runs, dropped catch by Silva. That's a chance and Silva will probably feel he should have taken that. A prod from Ballance with his bat away from his body but he survives.

60.4
One Run
Herath to Robson. Stock length ball, outside off stump down the track driving, well timed to long off for 1 run, fielded by Fernando. Again Robson shows he is happy to come down the track to the spinners.

Fernando to Ballance. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, to short extra cover for no runs, fielded by Sangakkara. The first hour after lunch has yielded 57 runs without the loss of a wicket. DRS saved Ballance after Bowden had given him out, but apart from that these two young batsman have looked untroubled. Matthews is not getting the control he needs from his seamers. Sri Lanka desperately need a wicket as England are stepping up the run rate.

Start Of Over
This is a big day in the context of the series. England will be looking for a large score to follow up the effort of their bowlers yesterday. It is a big day for Cook who has his chance to hit back at his critics and get some runs on the board. As always, the first hour will be crucial, and if England can get through that, the stage could be set for Cook to deliver and remind the fans why he is one of England's most successful batsman.

14.6

APPEAL! Herath to Robson. Stock ball half volley, down leg side on the front foot glancing, to fine leg for 2 runs, fielded by Chandimal, appeal made for Run Out. Direct hit from Pradeep running backwards, umpire Davis goes upstairs for the review but all is fine for Robson, he makes his ground comfortably.

In what potentially was a difficult mini session for the two openers it has turned into a good day for the home team who finish 221 runs behind Sri Lanka. Earlier in the day when Chandimal and Sangakkara were batting together they would have fancied a total of 300 plus but quick wickets from Broad and Plunkett ensured they got a below par first innings score.

OUT! Caught. Plunkett to Fernando. Length ball, outside off stump on the back foot driving, outside edge to wicketkeeper, fielded by Prior. End of the innings. Five-for for Liam Plunkett at his adopted home ground. England bowlers did well in finding their lengths and were well rewarded with that first innings performance. The first hour after tea they were in a spot of bother when Sangakkara and Chandimal were together with a stand of 67 but with Sanga's wicket came the comeback. Four wickets in nine balls and as well as Broads hat-trick will see the home side pleased with that effort.
