Pathum Nissanka brings up a half-century amid regular wickets

England are keeping a check on Sri Lanka despite Pathum Nissanka expressing himself. Ben Stokes has struck twice in quick succession to dismiss Dhanjaya de Silva and Charith Asalanka to reduce Sri Lanka to 84/3 in 10.3 overs.

Chris Woakes has provided England the much-needed breakthrough earlier as Kusal Mendis flicked a slower ball to deep square leg and Liam Livingstone took a fine running catch. The openers had made an ideal start but England managed to draw first blood inside the PowerPlay.
