Cook top scores as batsmen enjoy workout
November 22, 2007 22:57 IST
England finished the day on 315 for six wickets in reply to the Sri Lanka side's 500 for five declared.
Cook enjoyed a partnership of 77 with captain Michael Vaughan [Images], who hit 38 before being trapped lbw by leg spinner Malinga Bandara.
The only batsman to fail on a docile pitch was Kevin Pietersen [Images] who was caught in the gully for four off seamer Nuwan Kulasekera.
England have one more practice game before the first Test starts on December 1 in Kandy.
