The Second Test Match between England and Sri Lanka could be heading for a draw provided the visitors do not get blown away in their second innings like in Cardiff. Time is running out in the 2nd Test as rain consumed  the entire morning session on the fourth day. When play did resume, England bowled out Sri Lanka in their first innings for 479 to take a slender lead of 7 runs. Steven Finn with 4 wickets and Swann with 3 wickets wrapped up things for England.

The hosts then finished the fourth day’s play at 149 for 2 in just 41 overs in their second innings with opener Alastair Cook scoring an unbeaten 61 and Jonathan Trott scoring a busy 58 from 75 balls.
