Sri Lanka vs England Live Cricket Score, 1st Test Day 4 Live Cricket: Sri Lanka are well behind in this contest against England at Galle. They were put in to chase 462 runs and weathered the seven overs before close of play without losing a wicket. With two days left to play, there is enough time for a result – even after taking into account possible weather delays. Speaking of, Sri Lanka would hope for the heavens to open up and save them from this herculean task. England seamers got some movement but the spinners would likely make bigger impact. Sri Lanka will resume from overnight’s 15/0.

Dimuth Karunaratne and Kaushal Silva come out to resume things for Sri Lanka. James Anderson and Sam Curran to test them early on. 

Pitch Report: There is a bit of rough still present and there is going to be a lot of turn. There are some scratch marks and it’s a concern for the batsmen.

Weather: There was heavy rain overnight but it has subsided in the morning. Great job by the groundstaff to get the surface and surrounding areas in proper condition for a timely start. Overcast conditions at the start. 

Sri Lanka XI: Dimuth Karunaratne, Kaushal Silva, Kusal Mendis, Dinesh Chandimal (c), Angelo Mathews, Niroshan Dickwella (wk), Dhananjaya de Silva, Dilruwan Perera, Akila Dananjaya, Suranga Lakmal, Rangana Herath

England XI: Keaton Jennings, Rory Burns, Moeen Ali, Joe Root (c), Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler, Ben Foakes (wk), Sam Curran, Adil Rashid, Jack Leach, James Anderson
