Day Three at Lord's

Before play started...: A lot of runs and not a great deal of wickets over the first two days

Where did it all go wrong for Sri Lanka?: Rain in the evening stopped them reaching England's score which could have made this game very interesting with two days left

Where did it all go right for Sri Lanka?: Plenty more runs before the rain

Where did it all go wrong for England?: Bowled better than Day 2, but still not to the required level.

Where did it all go right for England?: The bowling did improve (Finn especially) which is a slight bonus. The rain means that Sri Lanka are probably going to be unable to force a result.

Who won each session?: Morning and Afternoon - Sri Lanka. Evening - Rain.

Who's winning the game?: Sri Lanka are able to get a handy lead and despite the rain, we all know from last week what scoreboard pressure can do. England should bat through, but Sri Lanka are probably favourites at this stage.

Shot of the day: Jayawardene driving for four. Exquisite.

Ball of the day: Tremlett taking Sangakkara's wicket. Nice bit of bowling.

Man of the day: Tillakaratne Dilshan - kept going despite clearly being in immense physical pain to pull through for his team. Deserved the double hundred.

Mug(s) of the day: Weather. Rain isn't fun for anyone.
