England took control of the first Test against Sri Lanka on the second day in Galle.

Ben Foakes went through to his century in his maiden Test innings as the tourists reached 342 all out in their first dig.

And England's bowlers backed up their wicketkeeper-batsman by dismissing Sri Lanka for just 203 in response.

Moeen Ali was the pick of the bowlers, taking 4-66, while fellow spinners Jack Leach and Adil Rashid picked up a couple of scalps apiece.

Rory Burns, who had earlier taken a nasty blow to the back, and Keaton Jennings reached 38-0 in England's second innings to set up a platform on which to build a big lead on day three.
