Live: England v Sri Lanka

BBC News: England finally captured the ninth Sri Lankan wicket with the score on 526, but trail by 167 in the final session. Chaminda Vaas and Nuwan Kulasekera put on a Sri Lankan ninth wicket record stand of 105 before the latter was caught on the boundary for 64.

Kulasekera, dropped on 14 by Alastair Cook, reached his maiden fifty in style with a six off Monty Panesar.

England had revived victory hopes with two scalps in a rain-hit first session but did not strike in the afternoon.
