England's problems against spin haunted them once again as Rangana Herath struck twice on the second morning of the first Test against Sri Lanka.
Responding to 318, England lost Alastair Cook for duck before captain Andrew Strauss and Jonathan Trott fell to the slow left-armer. That left the tourists 57 for three at lunch, with Kevin Pietersen and Ian Bell in charge of the recovery.
England started the day chasing the final two wickets, James Anderson obliging to pick up his 12th five-wicket haul.
He began by bouncing Chanaka Welegedara, a tactic that yielded 16 runs in the first over - with fours off the middle and edge of the tailender's bat as well as his pad and helmet.
That eased the Sri Lanka total past 300 but Anderson removed Welegedara with the last ball of his second over, a clever off-cutter that floated between bat and pad to hit leg stump. That wicket was Anderson's 253rd in Tests, taking him clear of fellow Lancastrian Brian Statham and into fifth in England's all-time list.
Jayawardene managed to add 12 to his overnight total but was preoccupied by protecting Suranga Lakmal and paid the price when he nicked Anderson to Matt Prior.
England were looking for a big total in response but lost their most reliable batsman of the past 18 months when Cook fell without scoring. Lakmal was the bowler, swinging one in to the left-hander and striking him in front of off stump.
England's first sight of spin came in the ninth over, Herath finding Strauss' edge almost immediately only for the ball to evade Jayawardene at slip.
Trott then donated his wicket to Herath in baffling fashion, going down the track to meet the ball on the full only to miss it completely and be stumped. If that was bad enough, he then collided with wicketkeeper Prasanna Jayawardene and collapsed dramatically before departing in a daze.
Strauss was gone 13 balls later, given lbw on review attempting to sweep Herath. Asad Rauf rejected the initial appeal but the technology went in the bowler's favour. Strauss was visibly unhappy with the review. Bell started well against Herath, with a towering six and a timed four in successive balls.
