Sri Lankans pulled off a great escape to draw the first Test against England and Sri Lanka at Lords after they were made to follow on in their second innings. The butter hands of England allowed the Lankans to make sure that they have pulled off one of the greatest escape in Test Cricket as they were 359 runs behind after making 192 in their first innings. If the Englishmen held to their chances the match would have been over by the fourthday. England dropped 9 catches in the second innings of Sri Lanka. Its bit unusual for the side that beat the Aussies in the Ashes last year.
