Hales, Bairstow lead England revival
Alex Hales and Jonathan Bairstow frustrated Sri Lanka after Dasun Shanaka, the debutant allrounder, sparked a top-order collapse on the first day of the first Test at Headingley on Thursday (May 19). England, who had slumped to 83 for 5, had rallied to 171 for 5 at tea, and rain at the interval prevented a prompt resumption of a fascinating day’s play. Hales, the opening batsman who was under pressure for his place after a modest return in the series win in South Africa, was a Test-best 71 not out with Bairstow, on his Yorkshire home ground, unbeaten on 54. The pair’s so far unbroken sixth-wicket stand of 88 helped England recover after Shanaka’s treble strike went a long way to justifying Angelo Mathews’s decision to field first. The Sri Lankan captain won the toss in overcast conditions reminiscent of those at Headingley two years ago when his side won the second Test to seal their first series win in England. Alastair Cook, the captain who started his innings needing just 36 more runs to become the first Englishman to score 10,000 in Tests, got off the mark with a trademark clip off his legs for four. But the left-hand opening batsman was caught behind for 16 going for a cover drive off a wide but full delivery from Shanaka. Three deliveries later and still in the 21st over, Shanaka had the under-fire Nick Compton out for nought with Lahiru Thirimanne at first slip holding a low catch. Joe Root, England’s recently crowned player of the year in all formats, also fell for a duck to Shanaka as he edged to gully. Shanaka had taken three wickets for one run in eight balls, again proving the value of accurate medium pace in conditions offering some assistance, if not extravagant movement, for swing and seam bowling.
