Joe Root comes in at 3 to bat. Pressure early on for England too.
0.2 over (0 Run) OUT! Bairstow has to take the long walk back! A golden duck for him. A tough, tough call there by the umpire. Could have easily gone either way. Bairstow knows that and he walks back very angry. Smashes his bat onto the ground. Malinga bowls a fuller delivery on the leg pole. Jonnny looks to flick but misses to get hit on the pad. An appeal and the umpire raises his finger after giving it a thought. Bairstow reviews after a chat with Vince. Replays roll in and they show that the ball is just clipping the leg pole. The on-field call stays and Sri Lanka have got the start they would have wanted defending a low total.
Action straightaway! Bairstow has been given out LBW! He has reviewed. Looks out though if there is no inside edge. Ultra Edge shows no bat involved. Hawk Eye shows it to be umpire's call.
0.1 over (1 Run) England are underway! A ball down the leg side, Vince flicks it towards fine leg and takes one.
We are back for the chase. The English openers Jonny Bairstow and James Vince are at the crease. Lasith Malinga to start the proceedings for the Lankan Lions with the first new ball.
