Tillakaratne Dilshan batting during his innings of 193 at Lord's in June 2011.

On the opening day, England's batsmen were reduced to 22 for 3, before battling back to finish the day on 342 for 6. This included a record stand for the sixth wicket against Sri Lanka, when Eoin Morgan and Matt Prior made 101 runs.[5] Sri Lankan captain Tillakaratne Dilshan score of 193 was the highest score made by a Sri Lankan at Lord's and Dilshan's highest Test Match score.[6] Dilshan also broke his thumb during his innings, after a delivery on the third day from Chris Tremlett. As a result, he'll miss the Third Test.[7] England wicketkeeper Matt Prior was reprimanded by the International Cricket Council, after he broke a window in the dressing-room, following a run-out.[8]
