The early stages of the day were all about Foakes, who scored a 200-ball ton to become the only the second England wicketkeeper, after Matt Prior against Windies at Lord's in 2007, to reach three figures on his Test bow and then caught out Sri Lanka opener Dimuth Karunaratne second ball.

Ali came to the fore in the afternoon and evening, although Foakes was still in the thick of the action with an excellent catch off Ali's off-spin, plus a fine stumping to remove Sri Lanka skipper Dinesh Chandimal off Adil Rashid.
