46.6 - N Pradeep to M Wood
GOT HIM! That's done and dusted here at Headingley. He gave him one ball to survive and one was enough for Pradeep to pluck out his first wicket on the last ball of his spell! Testing lines around the fourth stump and jags away just a tad bit, Wood pokes at it and gets a fine tickle to Perera. Headingley's low scoring thriller belongs to rejuvenated Sri Lankans. Exemplary spirit shown by them.
46.5 - N Pradeep to B Stokes
Fuller length on the pads, clipped away along the carpet to deep midwicket for a run! What a brilliant atmosphere at Headingley, Leeds and what a day of cricket!
46.4 - N Pradeep to B Stokes
Low full toss on off stump, times it perfectly through the covers and there is a massive boundary down there but Stokes does not intend to run.
46.3 - N Pradeep to B Stokes
Full-length ball on middle stump, plants his knee and sweeps it behind deep backward square leg for a sizzling boundary as the sell-out crowd jumps in elation!
46.2 - N Pradeep to B Stokes
FOUR! Yorkerish length outside off, squeezes it past short midwicket and it's Malinga on long-on and there is no way he is stopping that! Scoots away for four.
46.1 - N Pradeep to B Stokes
What a thrilling nail-biting contest! 30 more from 24 balls required. Full and straight, helicopter shot is out as the ball dribbles to long on
Ov 46: 6 6 0 2 1 0 ( 15 Runs )
45.6 - I Udana to M Wood
Blocks it and Headingley erupts in cheer as the over is done! Length ball on offstump, patted towards point and Stokes is never running.
45.5 - I Udana to B Stokes
Full on 5th stump line, squeezed it away to deep cover for a run. Ben Stokes is the great wall of China here in front of Sri Lanka. Can he win it for England from here?
45.4 - I Udana to B Stokes
Very slow delivery on the hips, he bunts it into the wicket on the onside, Stokes and Wood rush back for two!
45.3 - I Udana to B Stokes
Slow ball just outside off, swiped down to long off! Too much drama as the game oscillates from one side to another
45.2 - I Udana to B Stokes
TWO IN A ROW! Charges down and smokes this high and handsome over long-off. Massive! 12 off the first two!
45.1 - I Udana to B Stokes
Is there still a twist in the tale? SLOW BALL MISFIRES! Stokes picked the bones out of that depositing it over long on into the stands. WOW! That is a mood-lifter for England who are looking very optimistic now.
