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. 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.

Right-hander Ricky Nolasco and the Twins agreed to terms on a free-agent contract Wednesday, a person with knowledge of the deal told The Associated Press.Chris Pronger could be entering the Hockey Hall of Fame in just two years. TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun of ESPN.com points out that despite the fact that the 39-year-old Pronger is still an active NHL player with the Philadelphia Flyers, if he were to retire, he could be Hall of Fame eligible in 2015. The current Hockey Hall of Fame eligibility bylaw reads that any player who has not played in three seasons is eligible to be inducted. Pronger last played in the 2011-12 season. "He would be eligible in 2015 as far as the way the bylaw reads and as long, obviously, as he doesnt play again prior to his election," said Jeff Denomme, president and CEO of the Hockey Hall of Fame, to ESPN.com on Monday. "If there was any question on matters pertaining to any particular candidates eligibility, I suspect thats something the board would raise at some point, though." Pronger has three years remaining on his current contract and would no longer get paid what hes owed if he called it a career. The Flyers, meanwhile, would not receive salary cap relief by placing him on the long-term injured list at the beginning of each season and wouldnt recouup the $4.dddddddddddd94 million cap space. They cant buy him out either, since he is still injured. Despite the by-law, Lebrun says the decision would ultimately have to be made by the Hockey Hall of Fames board of directors, who may not consider him given his current active NHL status. The decision could also hinge upon the board being completely convinced Pronger wont return to the ice. "Any time people talk about things like that, its always an honour to be regarded in that light, but I think it would be a bit early to put myself in that esteemed group, Im not too worried about it," Pronger told ESPN.com. "I dont think anybody who has ever played the game, that was their goal, its a by-product of the way you played the game. Its a great honour to be thought about in that regard, though." Pronger is still suffering from post-concussion symptoms from an incident in October of 2011. Should his career be over, the Dryden, ON, native would finish with 1,167 games played, including time with the Hartford Whalers, St. Louis Blues, Edmonton Oilers, Anaheim Ducks and the Flyers. He has 698 points and 1,590 penalty minutes. ' ' '
