England v Sri Lanka, 1st Test at Cardiff: Day 5

Wow- an unbelievable finish at Cardiff; Sri Lanka collapse in 25 overs to give England the Test by an innings!! Full credit goes to Graeme Swann and Chris Tremlett for some fine bowling, of course, but who saw this coming? Funnily enough, we said yesterday that a Sri Lanka collapse could trigger a flood of WPA but after more rain this morning, who would have thought this would actually happen?! But it did, and the main beneficiary was Swanny, whose wickets came after an England win had shifted from the impossible to the marginally possible...

Here's a summary of the game, certainly the sharpest swing in WPA we've ever seen!
