Sri Lanka 77-2 in 2nd innings, still 130 behind England
LEEDS, England (AP) James Anderson removed both openers to leave Sri Lanka 77-2 in its second innings and still 130 runs behind England in the first test at Headingley on Saturday.
Anderson took his match haul to seven wickets to keep England in firm control of the series opener at lunch on the third day after Sri Lanka was forced to follow on.
Anderson continued to take advantage of helpful seam bowling conditions to have Dimuth Karunaratne (7) and Kaushal Silva (14) both caught behind by wicketkeeper Jonny Bairstow.
Kusal Mendis was 47 not out but Sri Lanka still face an uphill task to save the test.
Bairstow made 140 in England's first-innings 298 all out before Anderson took 5-16 as Sri Lanka was bowled out for just 91 in its reply Friday.
