Result: Sam Robson leads England past 100-run mark

Sam Robson helps England to reach 106-1 at lunch on day two of the second Test against Sri Lanka at Headingley.

England have reached 106-1 at lunch on day two of the second Test against Sri Lanka at Headingley.

Starting on 36-0, England finished the session in a solid position as Sam Robson scored his maiden Test half-century.

The day started disappointingly for captain Alastair Cook, who added just three runs to his overnight score when he was caught by Kumar Sangakkara off the bowling of Dhammika Prasad for 17.

However, Robson stayed at the crease to move onto 55 not out, while Gary Ballance will begin the second session on 30.
