Time for a new thread now England are back in action and a day they couldn't have asked much more from. Was out earlier so listening to updates on R5 and it seems the Sri Lanka batsmen were a bit profligate with their batting. Still a 5-for that Dom Bess will take happily after bowling a lot better for less in the summer. After a dodgy start to our own innings and my return to Sky coverage, good to see Root and Bairstow dig in and play nicely. Especially as the tail looks a bit long. Hopefully Root can go big and we can establish a healthy first innings lead.
