    Drinks break! Well, England just require another 21 runs here and there is nothing much left for the Lankans. They would only be rueing the way they batted earlier. If only they could have gotten England to chase maybe 240-250, they might have stood a better chance. But now, the writing seems to be on the wall, crystal clear. Only a matter of moments before England sweep the series 2-0… And it seems, we are just speculating that England have taken the extra half hour. The reason is we don’t usually see Drinks at this stage.
