England were bowled out for 365 on Day three of the second Test played between England and Sri Lanka at Headingley. It meant that they have a lead of 108 runs on the board. They started the day at 320 for six, but lost their last four wickets for just 45 runs. Angelo Mathews took four wickets and Shaminda Eranga snared four as well in a fine spell.

Mathews was the best bowler on view for Sri Lanka, as he pitched it up and got the ball to move off the surface. The wicket he took of Liam Plunkett was a nip-backer that crashed into the stumps. He is doing a fine jobs as a captain of Sri Lanka. Eranga swung the ball late and troubled English batsmen as well. England now will look for early wickets to put Sri Lanka under strife. Remember they had a lead of 108 runs going into the break.

When England bowled, James Anderson, England’s spearhead did bowl a wonderful delivery to produce the edge of Dimuth Karunaratne’s bat, only for Chris Jordan to drop the catch in the slip cordon. From around the wicket he got it to pitch and angle it away from the left-hander.England needed that wicket to lift their spirits, but it wasn’t to be. He is getting the ball to swing, seam and is also generating bounce. Both openers would be happy that they survived his spell before lunch. So, Sri Lanka trail by 86 runs now and they need to keep playing well, as it is a cracked up surface.

Earlier, From cruising with two wickets down and having two set batsmen at the crease, a late burst in the day by the Sri Lankan seamers with the second new ball reduced England to 320 for the loss of six wickets by the end of Day Two in the second Test at Headingley.

Sri Lanka  257 (Kumar Sangakkara 79, Dinesh Chandimal 45; Liam Punkett 5 for 64, Stuart Broad 3 for 46) and 22 for no loss (Dimuth Karunaratne 16*) trail England 365 (Sam Robson 127, Gary Ballance 74; Shaminda Eranga 4 for 93, Angelo Mathews 4 for 44) by 86 runs.
