    As it happened: England vs Sri Lanka, 1st Test, Day 5

    (For ball-by-ball commentary, scroll down to the bottom of the page)

    Pre-match: Gary Ballance hit an unbeaten 104 for his first Test century as England fought back to finish the fourth day on 267 for 8 and lead Sri Lanka by 389 runs.

    With one day left, the Sri Lankans will have to pass the highest successful run chase at Lord's of 344, achieved by the West Indies in 1984. An overnight declaration from England looks highly likely, as it will seek to take 10 wickets in the final day.
