Scorecard

Spinner Dom Bess took 5-30 as a woeful Sri Lanka batting show left England in management after the opening day of the primary Test in Galle.

The hosts had been bowled out for 135 in solely 46.1 overs regardless of successful the toss on a pitch that provided solely slightly spin.

England closed on 127-2, with Joe Root unbeaten on 66, Jonny Bairstow 47 not out and their third-wicket stand value 110.

Dom Sibley and Zak Crawley fell to left-arm spinner Lasith Embuldeniya for 4 and 9 respectively.

Sri Lanka’s complete was the bottom in a primary innings in a Galle Test, and was a pitiful exhibition of indiscipline and poor strokes which demonstrated a transparent lack of expertise of how you can construct a Test innings.

England, who made 5 adjustments from their earlier Test in August, had been disciplined with the ball and tidy within the discipline, apart from a drop from debutant Dan Lawrence, with Stuart Broad very good in taking 3-20.

The second day begins at 04:30 GMT on Friday.

Sloppy Sri Lanka present England early benefit

With England’s most up-to-date Test being performed 5 months in the past, and Sri Lanka taking part in in South Africa over Christmas and the brand new yr, there was concern that the vacationers wouldn’t be as ready because the hosts.

Those fears quickly disappeared.

Broad, who had Lahiru Thirimanne caught at leg slip and Kusal Mendis, who has now made a duck in 4 successive Test innings, caught behind within the seventh over, showcased his expertise and guile by turning to off-cutters nearly instantly.

Bess, taking part in his 11th Test, might have taken his second five-wicket haul in Tests however struggled to discover a constant line and size.

Kusal Perera reverse swept Bess’ second ball to Root at slip, whereas Niroshan Dickwella slapped an extended hop to Sibley at level to fall for 12.

After getting Dasun Shanaka in lucky circumstances as a sweep rebounded off Bairstow at quick leg into wicketkeeper Jos Buttler’s arms, Bess produced a superbly flighted supply to bowl Dilruwan Perera between bat and pad for a duck.

He rounded off the innings by bowling the reverse-sweeping Wanindu Hasaranga for 19 because the hosts misplaced their final 5 wickets for 30 runs.

Stand-in captain Dinesh Chandimal and Angelo Mathews provided some battle with a stand of 56 for the fourth wicket, the previous turning into the 12th Sri Lankan to succeed in 4,000 Tests runs and Mathews the fifth to six,000.

However, each fell tamely within the house of three balls as Broad – who had taken three wickets in 80 overs in Sri Lanka earlier than this match – had Mathews slashing to slide, earlier than Chandimal looped a easy catch to Sam Curran at cowl to provide Jack Leach his first Test wicket since November 2019.

Root & Bairstow nullify spin risk

For England this two-Test tour, which was lower quick in March 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic, is a build-up to the four-Test sequence in India that follows.

To stand any likelihood of beating Virat Kohli’s aspect England should play spin nicely, and they are going to be involved by the early inroads that Sri Lanka made.

Opener Sibley, whom many really feel is susceptible towards spin, edged to slide by way of his again pad as he tried to work Embuldeni to leg.

Crawley, promoted to open given Rory Burns’ absence to be on the start of his first youngster, appeared to take Embuldeniya excessive – a shot he performed fantastically final summer season – however mistimed it to mid-off.

However, Root, whose fifty was his 50th in Test cricket, might be buoyed by the way in which he and the recalled Bairstow nullified the spin risk as they shared England’s highest partnership in Galle.

It was a chanceless stand, though Root overturned an lbw determination on 20 with replays displaying the ball would have gone over the stumps.

Both he and Bairstow scored across the wicket, with Root taking part in the sweep to good impact, and Bairstow reducing and flicking by means of mid-wicket nicely.

They will hope to construct a considerable first-innings lead and switch the match right into a three-innings sport.

‘England did not must work exhausting in any respect’ – response

England spinner Dom Bess on BBC Test Match Special: “We have put ourselves in a really good position. Rooty and Jonny batted really well because the wicket started to spin.

“I felt I used to be fairly nervous. I hadn’t bowled in a sport because the Test matches final summer season.

“I didn’t feel I bowled as well as I know I can. That’s cricket, isn’t it? There might be days bowl exceptionally well and go 1-100.”

Former England captain Michael Vaughan: “It was a unbelievable day for England.

“The partnership with Root and Bairstow was precisely what was required by Sri Lanka.

“Mathews and Chandimal are experienced pros. They were playing nicely and then played two rash shots. It was so poor from Sri Lanka.”

Former Sri Lanka all-rounder Russell Arnold: “It is not a minefield. It was very poor from Sri Lanka. England didn’t have to work hard at all.

“It could be very, very disappointing. It stunned me and I anticipated much more.”
