Last man James Anderson was caught at leg gully off Shaminda Eranga from the penultimate ball of the second test at Headingley.

 

Anderson had survived for 20 overs in the company of Moeen Ali, who batted through the day for an unbeaten 108 off 281 balls, his maiden test century.

 

Final scores, Sri Lanka 257 and 457, England 365 and 249.
