Classy Root ton propels England in front: 2nd Test, Day 3 (Kandy)

Skipper Joe Root seized the moment with a brilliant 124 to put England in charge against Sri Lanka.

Sri Lanka fought back to reduce England to 109-4. Root's 15th Test century contained 10 fours and two sixes to anchor England's 9-324. Rory Burns (59) and Ben Foakes (51 not out) provided support to Root.

England 290 & 324-9 (Root 124, Burns 59, Foakes 51*, Akila 6-106) vs Sri Lanka 336 (Roshen 85, Karunaratne 63, Leach 3-70, Rashid 3-75) has England leading by 278 runs.
