Sri Lanka had a chance to break the stand when Root was caught at short fine leg off spinner Dhananjaya de Silva but the delivery was called illegal by the umpire as the hosts had more fielders outside the 30-yard circle than permitted. Hales, standing in for the injured Jonny Bairstow , was smartly stumped off Akila Dananjaya for 12.

And it's the same, too, if you were to opt, not unreasonably, for champion stayer Stradivarius . "It is super to have him back", trainer John Gosden said.

- October 23, 2018

After picking up 10 wickets in the second Test match, Umesh was included in the ODI team as well but lacked the consistency or penetration he showed with the red ball.

The Broncos are not opposed to parting with their top receiver. Since he joined the Broncos' front office in 2011, Elway typically has shied away from making big splashes at the deadline. A pair of Denver Broncos veterans have been placed on the trading block, according to reports early Sunday. The 30-year-old Thomas is seemingly viewed as expendable because the team selected 6-3, 218-pound receiver Courtland Sutton in the second round of this year's National Football League draft.
