England really couldn’t have asked for much more.
Ben Foakes reached his maiden Test century earlier in the day as they progressed to 342 all out, before Anderson and Curran got stuck in.
The seamers grabbed a wicket apiece, removing the Sri Lankan openers cheaply, before spin took centre stage.
Moeen and Leach have both got in on the action, leaving the hosts tottering on 42-4 at lunch. They’re 300 runs adrift with 6 wickets remaining, their injured captain at the crease.
See you at 7.10am for what is set to be a fascinating afternoon session. England on top.
