Go slow farce: Cook and Nasser slam Chandimal and Mathews (Lords)

21 year old Dinesh Chandimal's unbeaten 105 helped Sri Lanka to a six-wicket victory but his quest for a Lord's century was only possible after Angelo Mathews had played out a deliberate maiden at the other end.

An angry Kevin Pietersen had a pointed conversation with umpire Nigel Llong. Skipper Cook was obviously irked by what he seemed to take as an insult to his team when he stated "They're perfectly entitled to do it if they want," he said. "But you never know, the cricketing Gods might look down at that in a bit of disgust.". Nasser Hussain also got stuck into the duo saying "dont mess with the game, it will bite you".

The Lankan skipper, Dilshan, was also dismayed stating "It was disappointing for me that they didn't take the singles,".
