Jonny Bairstow continued a brilliant year of run-scoring with a Test-best 167 not out against Sri Lanka at Lord's yesterday.

But the debate about whether Bairstow should continue to keep wickets for England intensified when he dropped a routine catch to reprieve Dimuth Karunaratne on the 2nd day of the 3rd Test.

At stumps, Sri Lanka was 162 for 1 in reply to England's first innings 416, a deficit of 254 runs.

Kaushal Silva was 79 not out and Kusal Mendis was unbeaten on 25 after left-handed opener Karunaratne got out on 50.
