    And sadly that's all from us today.

    That was one of the most remarkable days of cricket I have seen in a while. Things changed around so quickly.

    Read all about the day, Keaton Jennings' catches, Adil Rashid's five-fer and Ben Stokes' energy-sapping spell in Jack Skelton's report here.

    Don't forget about the Women's World T20 final tonight at midnight between England and Australia. Why not do an all-nighter and rejoin us from 4:15 GMT for day three afterwards?

    You best head off for some sleep?

  2. England go for World T20 glory

    England Australia

    It has turned into a very good day for England's men's team. Tonight it's over to England's women's as they go for glory in the Women's World T20.

    Their final against Australia starts at midnight tonight. We'll have ball-by-ball commentary on BBC Radio, plus live-text commentary with in-play clips and highlights here on the BBC Sport website.

    Heather Knight says her England side have a "chance to cement ourselves in history".

    Don't miss it. Play starts at 00:00 GMT.

    Adam Becket: I love Adil Rashid. This England team are so likeable.

    Mike: Thoroughly enjoyed watching Rashid and Stokes bowl in that final session.

  6. Post update

    Which of Keaton Jennings' four catches do you think was best?

    In my eyes it's either the first one where he followed the advancing Danushka Gunathilaka down the pitch and took the catch or his fourth one off Roshen Silva where he just stuck out a left hand to take a catch low to his left.

    I'm just going with the fourth one. His reaction time was 0.3 seconds. It's causing debate around our desk here!

    Mike Kelcey: England physio: Keaton, you are looking a bit red mate. Jennings: Yeah, I think I caught the sun.

  9. 'A great comeback'

    England spinner Adil Rashid on Sky Sports after taking Test-best figures of 5-49: "It was a great comeback in the last session. They got a great start. We always had belief going into tea so we just kept it simple and the rewards came.

    "There have been periods when I feel I have bowled better but today I felt good and to get wickets like that with Stokesey at the other end was pleasing.

    "To bowl my variations is my strength and trying mix up my pace. At times it can be challenging with the red ball. For me it is about being positive with the pace and variations.

    "My role has always been to come in and break partnerships and make things happen. We have that understanding what Rooty what he wants from me and if doesn't work he knows to say 'have a break and come back again'."

  10. 'England were ordinary for two-thirds of the day'

    Jonathan Agnew

    BBC cricket correspondent in Colombo

    England's batting was comfortably below par this morning. Then those dropped catches. At tea you're think Sri Lanka will build a lead - and there goes England's hopes of a 3-0 whitewash.

    England had a very ordinary two-thirds of the day - they really drifted. But they lifted themselves. It started with Jennings at short leg. He has worked really hard there - and he deserved those catches.

    But I want to give Stokes some credit because there's nothing in this pitch for him. He bowled a spell of real pace and hostility - and the Sri Lankans didn't fancy it, quite frankly. That was a very good effort from Stokes.

    Rashid spun the ball miles. He bowled really well - and got a run-out in the middle of that chaos.

  11. Post update

    So we started the evening session two hours ago.

    Sri Lanka were 183-2. They were just 154 runs behind. Dimuth Karunaratne was 81 not out.

    Two hours later they have lost eight wickets in 14.5 overs for 57 and have had to come out and bowl in their second innings.

    England now lead by 99.

  12. How's stat?!

    Andy Zaltzman

    The Cricket Social statistician

    That is the biggest collapse against England by a team who have been 150-1.

    Isn't cricket absolutely magnificent? It changes in the blink of an eye.

  15. Close of play - Eng 3-0

    Lead by 99

    But in the two minutes since their last meter reading, the umpires have decided the light has got worse.

    That's the day done. The players are going off for bad light.

    England finish day two with a lead of 99.

  16. Eng 3-0

    You have to give England credit, as well as criticising Sri Lanka. They looked like conceding a 100-run first-innings deficit but now have a lead of 99. Stokes and Rashid changed the game around after tea.

    Burns sees off the rest of the fourth over.

  17. Post update

    The batsmen were already walking off but we're not done yet. The umpires have taken a reading but they're happy for now.

  18. Post update

    Here's the first sight of the light meter. Umpire S Ravi is not happy. The umpires come together...
