England set Sri Lanka huge target after Jennings ton

Sri Lanka vs England 1st Test Live Cricket Streaming Ben Foakes nearing debut hundred

England were in trouble when Foakes walked out to bat but his century, which he completed on Wednesday, proved the cornerstone of an eventual first-innings total of 342.

Retiring hero Rangana Herath bowed out in disappointing fashion, run out sprawling to make his ground, but was clapped on and off the field in a show of respect by his opponents.

Jennings' second Test ton was neither pretty nor dynamic - and offered no clues about how he might reverse his struggles on seaming decks at home - but it was a study in concentration, the kind of effort England might have feared had headed for retirement with Alastair Cook.

England, one of the favourites for the ICC Women's World T20 2018 title, run into Sri Lanka in their opening fixture.

"We've got a fantastic squad of players; we came into this tour knowing that we've got different options". The 2009 champions come into the tournament with a power-packed line-up despite the absence of Katherine Brunt, who suffered a back injury and has been ruled out of the tournament.

After that, of course, there is a quality of the work and the quality of the organisation and I think that is untouchable.

Thisara Perera and Rangana Herath, who was playing his final worldwide fixture, took two wickets each. One ball after Dhanajaya de Silva successfully overturned a caught behind decision Stokes tightened up his line and took an indisputable edge that nestled safely in the hands of Joe Root.

England's Jack Leach (C) celebrates with captain Joe Root and teammates after taking the wicket of Sri Lanka's captain Dinesh Chandimal (not pictured) on November 9.

Kaushal was leg before sweeping Leach for 30 and Karunaratne skipped down the pitch and was caught and bowled by Ali for 26.

In reply, Sri Lanka managed to survive at the stumps of day 3 without losing any wickets and Dimuth Karunaratne and Kaushal Silva were the overnight batsmen.

Karunaratne had been given an early life by Ben Stokes at slip, England's best catcher grassing one off Moeen Ali, but did not cash in.

Three states could elect their first African-American governors, while several others were running LGBT candidates and Muslims. Marsha Blackburn (R) held on to that open seat in Tennessee for the Republicans, defeating Democratic contender former Gov.

After the break Kusal Mendis hit Leach for four over his head but attempting a repeat the next ball skied the ball to Ali, departing for an otherwise impressive 46.

Jennings, however, looked confident against the spinners, often playing the sweep shot - both traditional and reverse - to negate them.

"We had taken five wickets early but we couldn't take the game forward", Hathurusingha said.

The final session began badly for the hosts. He was followed into the pavilion by Akila Dananjaya for 8.

England's varied attack, with three quicks and three spinners, applied substantial pressure, with the slightly expensive Adil Rashid the only disappointment so far.
