Chris Woakes impressed with the ball and Alex Hales hit an unbeaten 41 as England racked up a 237-run lead over Sri Lanka on a wicket-laden day three of the third Investec Test at Lords. Peter Budaj Lightning Jersey . Woakes (3-31) struck twice in his four overs to trigger a heavy Sri Lanka collapse which saw the tourists tumble from their overnight 162-1 to 288 all out and England claim a first-innings advantage of 128.Hales then stayed composed as Nick Compton (19) - opening the batting after Alastair Cook was hit on the knee while fielding - Joe Root (4) and James Vince (0) were dismissed within the space of 10 balls.The Nottinghamshire star shared a stand of 51 with the in-form Jonny Bairstow (32) before the Yorkshireman became the third player to be bowled by Nuwan Pradeep (3-25) as England closed on 109-4. Alex Hales is unbeaten on 41 Angelo Mathews charges had negated their opponents bowling unit on day two but could not follow suit under cloud-riddled skies on Saturday morning, losing three batsmen for seven runs.Woakes started the slide by pinning Kusal Mendis (25) lbw with his first ball and backed that up with the scalp of Mathews (3), the Sri Lanka skipper fending a rising delivery to Joe Root at slip. Alastair Cook and Stuart Broad spoke to Nasser Hussain about being awarded a CBE and MBE for their services to cricket Stuart Broad, fresh from being awarded an MBE in the Queens Birthday Honours List, pocketed the wicket in-between when he forced Kaushal Silva (79) to snick through to Bairstow, the right-hander failing to add to his overnight score and spurning the chance to become the fifth Sri Lankan opener to hit a ton at Lords.Dinesh Chandimal (19) and Lahiru Thirmanne (17) stopped the rot with a stand of 33 but both were banished shortly before lunch by Steve Finn, Chandimal trapped leg before and Thirimanne caught by Root in the cordon following a loose drive.England captain Cook, given a CBE on Friday night, headed for an x-ray after being clattered on the knee by Kusal Perera fielding at silly mid-off, leaving Root to temporarily stand-in as skipper. Watch as England captain Cook takes a nasty blow to the knee during the third day of the third Test against Sri Lanka. The 25-year-old had had to wait a while for the first wicket on his watch as Perera and Rangana Herath (31) added 71 for the seventh wicket, Broad ending that enterprising stand when Herath, who made 61 in Durham, chopped on moments after afternoon drinks.But Sri Lankas innings tail mopped up pretty quickly, Anderson taking himself and Broad to a combined 495 wickets when opening the bowling together - above previous record holders Wasim Akram and Waqar Younis (493) - and Woakes dismissing Shaminda Eranga (1).Compton then strode out at the position from which he has notched his two Test tons and looked in decent fettle before he snicked Eranga behind with the score on 45, the Middlesex man trudging off for potentially the last time in an England flannel having notched just 117 runs in 10 innings. Nick Compton howls after nicking off for 19 Root and Vince soon followed their under-the-pump team-mate back into the dressing room, the former bowled by a low delivery from Pradeep and the latter castled shouldering arms next ball as the hosts shipped three wickets for five runs.Englands lead was just 178 at that stage but Hales - dropped on 19 by Dimuth Karunaratne at second slip - and Bairstow steadied matters, before the hosts wicketkeeper inside-edged onto his wicket towards the close.Chandimal then shelled Hales one-handed down the leg side with the opener on 39 and night-watchman Finn (6no) glanced between keeper and cordon during a frantic end to the day, but there were no further breakthroughs and England will be boosted by the fact Cook should be fit to bat on Sunday if needed.Watch highlights of day three from 8pm on Sky Sports 2 and then stick around at 9pm for The Verdict with Charles Colvile, Bob Willis, Jonathan Trott and Russel Arnold.Our build-up to day four starts at 10.30am on Sunday on Sky Sports 2, directly after the latest episode of Cricket Writers on TV with Paul Allott, Lawrence Booth and Dean Wilson.

CLEVELAND -- Pitching to J.D. Martinez didnt work out very well for the Cleveland Indians on Friday night. Facing Victor Martinez wasnt a very good idea either. J.D. Martinez hit a three-run homer, Victor Martinez added a two-run shot and the Detroit Tigers held on for a 6-4 victory. Rick Porcello (9-4) pitched six scoreless innings for the Tigers and Joe Nathan worked the ninth for his 15th save. But it was a big Martinez night for Detroit. Victor Martinez homered off Corey Kluber (6-5) in the fourth inning. J.D. Martinezs home run, following an intentional walk to Victor Martinez, came in the eighth off John Axford. J.D. Martinez was 3 for 4, extending his hitting streak to 10 games during which hes batting .447 (17 for 38) with four homers and raised his average to .317. "You see occasionally players get on a hot streak like this and I hope hes hot tomorrow," Detroit manager Brad Ausmus said. Victor Martinez, providing a big threat behind Miguel Cabrera, has 18 home runs and 47 RBIs with a .328 average. "When the season started I said the only guy who can protect Miguel is Miguel, but Im going to say now the other person who can protect Miguel would be Victor," Ausmus said. "So theres at least two." Indians manager Terry Francona agreed. "Hes the perfect guy behind Miggy," Francona said. "Miggys Miggy. He has that reputation and its well deserved, but Victor can hit all pitching. He can hit for power. He puts the bat on the ball when need be from both sides of the plate." Victor Martinez, who played for the Indians from 2002-09, is hitting .366 (70 for 191) with eight homers and 44 RBIs in 52 career games against his former team. Detroits designated hitter also continued his mastery over Kluber. Hes batting .471 (8 for 17) with two homers lifetime against the right-hander. "I dont think hes biased," Francona said. "Hes good against everybody." Victor Martinez belted Klubers first pitch deep into the seats in right field. The Indians walked him intentionally in the eighth, but J.D. Martinez ruined that strategy with his seventh home run. The Tigers took a 5-0 lead into the bottom of the eighth, but Asdrubal Cabrera hit a three-run homer and Carlos Santana had a solo shot off Ian Krol. Joba Chamberlain retired the final hitter of the inning and then Nathan struck out Michael Boourn with a runner on to end the game. Vincent Lecavalier Lightning Jersey. "My stress level got a little bit up in the eighth," Ausmus said. The Tigers returned to Progressive Field for the first time since they were swept in a three-game series last month. Detroit was 27-12 and held a seven-game lead in the AL Central, but suffered two walk-off losses, including a balk that scored the winning run in the 13th inning in the series finale. The sweep began a 10-20 tailspin which dropped the Tigers out of first place for the first time his season. Porcello, who is 9-3 lifetime against Cleveland, won for the first time since May 29 and for the second time in his last six starts. He was 7-1 with a 2.91 ERA in his first eight starts, but went 1-3 with a 6.00 ERA in the next five. Porcello allowed six hits, struck out three and walked one. "I had a good fastball," Porcello said. "My changeup was a big pitch. The way the guys played defence was fantastic too." Indians left fielder Michael Brantley singled as a pinch-hitter with two outs in the ninth, his first appearance since sustaining a concussion Monday. Porcello is 4-0 with a 1.47 ERA in five starts against Cleveland since 2013. Kluber hasnt won since May 30 after recording victories in four straight decisions. He gave up eight hits, struck out six and walked one. Ian Kinsler had an RBI double in the ninth. Tigers right fielder Torii Hunter missed his fourth straight game with a strained right hamstring. The crowd of 33,545 was the second-largest at Progressive Field this season, topped only by the home opener. NOTES: The Indians will induct Omar Vizquel into their Hall of Fame before Saturday nights game. He played for Cleveland from 1994-2004, won 11 Gold Gloves as a shortstop and finished his career with 2,877 hits. "Im very honoured," said Vizquel, the first base and infield coach for the Tigers. "Playing here was the highlight of my career."... Tigers C Alex Avila strongly disputed an Internet report that he is tipping pitches by tapping his glove. "Ive heard some crazy things, but that takes the cake," he said. "I think people are just searching for something."... The Indians recalled RHP Vinnie Pestano from Triple-A Columbus and optioned RHP Zach McAllister there. ... Tigers RHP Justin Verlander (6-7) takes on RHP Trevor Bauer (2-3) on Saturday. Verlander is 2-5 with a 7.83 ERA in his last seven starts.
