Not a good start.

Not sure why Ballance is batting so high up the order. He bats five for Yorkshire and Root bats three, yet roles are reversed for England :?

The opening bowlers speed is less than that of Paul Collingwood but there is some movement.
Shane Warne has arrived and having a little pop at the England team.

Brilliant 200 n.o. by Root, foot batting performance by England. Nice touch by sri Lankans, running over to congratulate him.

140-1 at close. Semms to be heading for a draw unless Sri Lanka collapse
