Sri Lanka's Kumar Sangakkara struck his first Test century at Lord's before three late wickets raised England's spirits on the third day of the first Test.

The masterful left-hander filled a rare gap on his CV with 147 as Sri Lanka comfortably avoided the follow-on target of 376, with Mahela Jayawardene scoring 55 and captain Angelo Mathews an unbeaten 79.

But after Sangakarra had gifted Moeen Ali his first Test wicket with a tired cut into Matt Prior's gloves, Liam Plunkett and Chris Jordan each claimed a scalp to leave the tourists on 415-7 in reply to England's 575-9 declared on a flat pitch.

Sanga keeps it steady for SL

Sri Lankan veteran Kumar Sangakkara once again displayed his superior batting skills as he consolidated the Sri lankan innings with a fine half century together with Mahela Jayawardana.

Openers Dimuth Karunarathna scored 38 and Kaushal Silva scored 63 and laid the foundation.

England declared on 575 runs for the loss of 9 wickets.
