Bess skittles out woeful Sri Lanka for 135: 1st Test, Day 1 (Galle)

Off spinner Dom Bess took 5-30 as a sorry Sri Lankan batting display left England in control after the opening day.

Sri Lanka managed only 135 in only 46.1 overs despite winning the toss on a pitch that played true.

England closed on 127-2, with Joe Root unbeaten on 66, Jonny Bairstow 47 not out and their third-wicket stand worth 110.

England 127 for 2 (Root 66*, Bairstow 47*) trail Sri Lanka 135 (Bess 5-30, Broad 3-20) by eight runs.
