OUT! Run Out. Adil Rashid to Rangana Herath. Leg spinner half volley, outside off stump on the front foot reverse sweeping, to third man for 1 run, fielded by Stokes, by Foakes. What a way to finish your Test match career. Rangana Herath scurries through for the second but he's no young pup now and Stokes has a bullet throw right over the top of the stumps. Out by the smallest of margins with the bat on the line and England win by a huge margin of 211 runs.From start to finish the England team have been brilliant with bat and ball. Galle is usually a fortress for Sri Lanka but the heavy rain and lack of sun made the pitch less favourable to their attack and the spinners found it very difficult to break through. Along with that their batsmen did not perform as they would have hoped and giving up such a big lead after the first innings was always going to be trouble. Credit has to go to the two centurions, Ben Foakes and Keaton Jennings. In both innings England needed someone to step up and that is exactly what they both did.We now head to Pallekele for the second Test and Sri Lanka will need to make at least one change with Herath now retiring and the fitness of their captain Dinesh Chandimal also a worry. Join us on the 14th to see who comes out on top in the next game in the series.

OUT! Caught. Suranga Lakmal to Ben Foakes. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to cover, by de Silva. That's the end of Foakes and England. He's looking to add another boundary to the score but the bat twists in the hands and Dhananjaya takes a very smart catch over his shoulder. England are all out for 342 while only lasting six overs this morning. The main task was getting Foakes to his hundred and he got there in style. For Sri Lanka they have got the job done quickly with Dilruwan Perera taking 5-75 and all the other bowlers chipping in. All down to the batsmen now and there will be pressure for them to score 350 plus as they will not want to be behind the game when this wicket starts to break up and spin.

FOUR! Suranga Lakmal to Ben Foakes. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Slog, well timed in the air under control past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. And now he is going to have some fun. More of an ODI style shot but it's very effective.

FOUR! Suranga Lakmal to Ben Foakes. Back of a length, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past long on for 4 runs. There it is. A firm punch back down the ground and the ball runs away to the rope. Foakes raises the bat to plenty of applause from this partisan crowd. Only the second English keeper to reach hundred on debut.

OUT! Caught. Dilruwan Perera to Jack Leach. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the back foot defending, outside edge to first slip, by de Silva. Just what Sri Lanka wanted this morning but England and Foakes won't have wanted to see the catch taken. The debutant remains at the other end on 95 but this wicket has been coming for a while. Dilruwan has been attacking the outside edge of the bat all morning and last evening and eventually he gets an edge which carries. Everyone is waiting around for a bit while the third umpire checks the no-ball but it seems as though Dilruwan has landed just behind the line.

FOUR! Dilruwan Perera to Ben Foakes. Off break half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep cover for 4 runs. Another warm, humid day in Galle and thankfully another dry one so play will start on time. England will resume on 321-8 with Ben Foakes nearing his maiden Test century. The only issue is the two wickets left so Foakes might have to start taking the strike more and manoeuvre England into a strong position. Without sun beating down on the wicket today should be good for batting, that means Sri Lanka will be wanting to finish off the innings quickly and get down to batting. A worry for them though is the niggle their captain Dinesh Chandimal picked up yesterday. Hopefully he should be able to bat but running between the wickets could be tricky, and painful.What a start to the morning, Foakes picks up where he left off with a crisp drive against the spin for four.

FOUR! Akila Dananjaya to Jack Leach. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, outside edge past third man for 4 runs. Flashed through slip and too quick for any of the fielders to be able to take the catch. Leach has teased the slips in the last couple of overs.England's day as both teams walk off and not many people would have said that after watching the first session. It started off badly for the visitors after they were put under pressure at 103-5 but a brilliant innings from the debutant Ben Foakes has got them out of plenty of trouble. His 87 not out along with vital contributions from Sam Curran and Keaton Jennings meant England batted out the day and posted 321-8.Sri Lanka will be disappointed to have not bowled out England but in the last two sessions they couldn't create many chances and the ones they did weren't taken. A fascinating day then and we should be in for more of the same tomorrow. Join us then.

Easy catch for the captain who is back on the field. Although celebrating caused him to feel the groin once again.

A good session for England as they have pushed the score onto 199-6 with Ben Foakes looking very good at the crease on 49 not out. The only wicket to fall was the one of Jos Buttler which will have disappointed the Sri Lankan bowlers as they have managed to find turn and bounce from the wicket while not creating many chances. Pretty even stuff so far at Galle, will that change in the final session?

OUT! Caught. Dilruwan Perera to Jos Buttler. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the back foot defending, outside edge to wicketkeeper, by Dickwella. Right on the stroke of drinks. One that slides on from Perera, keeps low a touch, and Buttler is undone on the outside. Great catch behind the stumps from Dickwella and he might have repaid his captain a little after some poor reviews earlier.

Akila Dananjaya to Jos Buttler. Off break half volley, down leg side on the front foot sweeping, top edge to fine leg for 2 runs, fielded by Karunaratne. Not a very good session for England to start the series. The conditions overhead were extremely English-like but the pitch was very alien and Sri Lanka used that to their advantage. Spin has been the order of the morning and that has caused a few jitters from the English batsmen. Their plans were to take the attack to the bowlers but eventually that was always going to bring the spinners back into the game and one wicket brought another and then another. It is going to need a big fightback in the next session from the debutant Ben Foakes and Jos Buttler before it's down to the bowlers. Sri Lanka well and truly on top at lunch.

OUT! Bowled. Dilruwan Perera to Ben Stokes. Off break length ball, off stump moves in front sweeping, Gloved to. The previous delivery has caused Stokes to play something out of the ordinary. First one slid onto the pad and Stokes thinks about getting outside the line and paddling it around the corner. The only problem with that is that Dilruwan is quicker through the air and Stokes can't get himself into a good position to play the shot. Fifth wicket down already.

A brilliant change of bowling from Chandimal with Perera brought back into the attack and the flatter trajectory has done for Jennings. Going back to a full, non-spinning delivery and the stumps are knocked over. Big partnership needed for England.

Start of England Innings. Hello and welcome to a gloomy day in Galle for the first Test match between Sri Lanka and England. After the poor weather that we had in the ODI series it is nice to see some dry weather and play is going to start on time even after a heavy downpour last night. England have not had the best of times on their travels in white clothing and they will want to change that while Sri Lanka are a tough force at home so this should be an interesting series. There is also the small matter of it being Rangana Herath's final Test match so this will be an emotional time for not only him but Sri Lankan cricket.Out in the middle the toss has been won by England and there is no surprise that they have opted to bat first. They have named two debutants, Ben Foakes and Rory Burns, while also leaving out Stuart Broad so that they can play three spinners. No surprises with the home side with three spinners also named while Angelo Matthews comes back after missing the ODI series.

OUT! Caught. Adil Rashid to Suranga Lakmal. Leg spinner length ball, to leg on the front foot Slog, outside edge in the air uncontrolled to backward point, by Anderson. Rather ugly shot from Lakmal and he loses all of his shape with the ball going the opposite way to where he was aiming.Sri Lanka are all out for 203 and they have conceded a lead of 139 which could be very important in the coming days. Only Angelo Mathews and Dinesh Chandimal applied themselves properly and most of the damage was done before they came in. At 40-4 it was uphill battle to get somewhere near the England total and unfortunately it ended up being too much. The spinners for England were superb, Moeen Ali picked up figures of 4-66 while Leach and Rashid both chipped in with a couple each.This could be a tricky little session coming up for the opening pair and Sri Lanka will come out firing with the ball.

Too full to sweep and the ball sneaks under the bat, smashing into the front pad. The finger goes up and Herath decides to review after chatting with Lakmal. Good decision from him as the replays show the ball has just brushed the bottom of the glove. Herath survives.

OUT! Caught. Moeen Ali to Angelo Mathews. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, bat-pad to short leg, by Jennings. Very first ball after tea and Moeen strikes. Big wicket of Mathews who tentatively prods forward and with bat and pad together loops a catch to the new man under the helmet, Keaton Jennings. Great start for England.

Moeen Ali to Niroshan Dickwella. Off break length ball, middle stump on the front foot sweeping, to fine leg for 1 run, fielded by Burns, fielded by Anderson. Nasty blow for Burns at short leg. The ball hits him on the top of the back as he ducked down. Physio's have run onto the field straight away to check him out. Both teams know the dangers after a fielder was hit fielding in the same position in a warm-up game.Because of the injury the umpire's have decided to take an early tea. A good session for Sri Lanka as they began the fightback through Dinesh Chandimal and Angelo Mathews. Unfortunately the former fell for 33 as the partnership was starting to flourish. England still remain in a strong position and a couple more wickets will get them into the tail. Good news for everyone is that Rory Burns has got up and walked unassisted into the changing rooms.

APPEAL! Adil Rashid to Dinesh Chandimal. Leg spinner length ball, down leg side on the front foot defending, outside edge to first slip for no runs, by Stokes, appeal made for Caught. England believe they have the breakthrough. Lovely delivery from Rashid which drifts in and then spins off the edge to first slip. Stokes is confident but the umpires just want to double-check that it has carried. Seems as though the ball has skipped off the ground before nestling into Stokes' hands. Not out.

Moeen Ali to Dinesh Chandimal. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Ali. Not been Sri Lanka's morning with the bat in hand. Just like what happened to England yesterday the top order have not stood up and the hosts have been blown away. A mix of poor shots and some good bowling from England. Jack Leach in particular has been solid with the ball and the seamers did the damage early on with a moving ball. One positive the Sri Lankan fans can cling to is the fact they have their two most experienced players Angelo Mathews and Dinesh Chandimal at the crease. They are going to need to put together a very strong partnership or else they could squander a big lead. Next session is going to be crucial.

What a start for England. Just short of a length from Anderson but it's the angle which takes the ball away from Karunaratne and makes him play at one he should have left. Not a great shot and not a brilliant review either. Clear spike on UltraEdge and Sri Lanka lose a wicket as well as one of their reviewa.

Akila Dananjaya to Keaton Jennings. Off break length ball, middle stump on the front foot reverse sweeping, to cover for no runs. Jennings will go into tea on 98 and it has been a very good session for England once again. They have lost just the one wicket while adding over 100 runs and pushing the lead past 350. It has been incredibly hard work for the bowlers with the sun beating down and nothing much happening with the wicket. There is turn but it is slow and the batsmen have been able to adjust and wait for the bad delivery. With such a big lead will England decide to declare tonight or bat until the morning? Find out after this break.

Sri Lanka have managed to make a couple of inroads with the wickets of Burns, Ali and Root but they needed a few more to put the pressure on. England will definitely be the happier of the two teams at the break.

APPEAL! Dhananjaya de Silva to Keaton Jennings. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, hit pad to silly mid off for no runs, fielded by Silva, appeal made for L.B.W. Tough for the umpire to work out whether it was pad or bat first. Sri Lanka are discussing it and I think the earlier wrong reviews has caused them to not go for this one. If they had done Jennings would have been on his way. Slo-motion replay shows pad first and HawkEye suggests the ball hit Jennings in line and would be going on to hit the stumps. Opportunity missed for Sri Lanka.

APPEAL! Rangana Herath to Keaton Jennings. Stock length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, hit pad to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Dickwella, appeal made for L.B.W. Loud appeal as usual from Dickwella behind the stumps. Half a shout for LBW and the rest for caught behind. The ball has only flicked the pad so caught is out of the equation while Jennings looks to have been hit outside the line of off stump so can't be given out.

FOUR! Dilruwan Perera to Keaton Jennings. Off break half volley, off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep extra cover for 4 runs. First boundary today. Overpitched and threaded through the gap firmly. Quick outfield and too much work for the chasing fielder to do.

Great flight from the wily veteran and enough turn out of the surface to kiss the outside edge through to Dickwella, who takes it with the fingertips.

OUT! Caught. Dilruwan Perera to Moeen Ali. Off break half volley, off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to mid on, by Herath. Another poor dismissal for Moeen Ali in this match. Looking to go over the top but the ball was too full which meant he couldn't get under it and create the elevation required. Herath at mid on manages to cling on using various body parts and in the end almost hugged the ball to his stomach to make sure he didn't put it down.

OUT! Run Out. Dilruwan Perera to Rory Burns. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the back foot working, to mid on, direct hit by Karunaratne. That is what pressure does to a batsman. Burns takes off and tries to scamper through for a single which isn't on. The fielder, Karunaratne, is alert to the situation and fires at the stumps leaving Burns short of the crease. Will that be the boost Sri Lanka needed?
