Leeds, England - England has been bowled out for 365 on Sunday, giving it a first innings lead of 108 over Sri Lanka on the third day of the second test at Headingley.

England began the day on 320-6 and Shaminda Eranga made the breakthrough for the tourists, when Chris Jordan edged to Mahela Jayawardene for a diving catch on 17. Angelo Mathews followed up in the next over with a wicket when Stuart Broad (4) edged to Lahiru Thirimanne at gully.

Mathews then flattened Liam Plunkett's middle stump with an in-swinging delivery that pitched outside off stump. Plunkett left after making two runs, and James Anderson went for 0 after fending an Eranga bouncer back to him.

Matt Prior finished unbeaten on 27.
