Broad hat-trick puts England on top

Stuart Broad took a hat-trick as England dismissed Sri Lanka for 257 to take the upper hand on day one of the decisive second Test at Headingley.

It was Broad's second Test hat-trick and, with Liam Plunkett taking 5-64 - a maiden Test five-wicket haul - England justified their decision to bowl first.

Kumar Sangakkara, who was dropped twice, top-scored with 79.

Alastair Cook survived a slip catch review as he and Sam Robson saw England to 36-0 from 15 overs before the close.
