### Nasser Hussain catches up with Sri Lanka legend Mahela Jayawardene

NASSER HUSSAIN: Sri Lanka are raring to go ahead of facing an under-prepared England for a two-Test series, and the hosts see an opportunity for an upset. England head into the series without Jofra Archer and Ben Stokes and with less than two days of match practice, while Sri Lanka are keen to bounce-back after a series defeat to South Africa. Sportsmail's NASSER HUSSAIN caught up with Sri Lanka legend and Mumbai Indians coach Mahela Jayawardene ahead of the series.

Joe Root made a double -century and England took two late wickets on the fourth day of the second Test against New Zealand. The Black Caps fell to 28-2 when Latham edged Woakes to Root at slip, but Kane Williamson (37) and Ross Taylor (31) were unbeaten at the close of play as they steadied

England captain Joe Root was denied a second consecutive double century when he was run out for 186 from the final ball of day three in a gripping second Test against Sri Lanka.

The great Wally Hammond remains the only Englishman in history to have passed 200 in consecutive matches, although Root looked certain to join him as he took the fight to the hosts in majestic fashion

Root is now fourth in England's list of all-time Test runs scorers, having surpassed Geoffrey Boycott, Kevin Pietersen and David Gower over the course of a truly magnificent knock, which accounts for the bulk of England's 339-9 – a first-innings deficit of 42.

### Department of Health rebrands 'professional use' kit as a self-test

EXCLUSIVE: The UK Department of Health said the Innova rapid test, which is for use by 'trained clinical personnel' was rebranded as an NHS test so it could be 'flexible' and used as a self-test.UK officials announced on Sunday that they will roll out 15-minute lateral flow swab tests to all councils and schools in Britain in a bid to get on top of Covid transmitting between people without symptoms.

Apparently the assertEquals( double expected, double actual) has been deprecated. Epsilon is your "fuzz factor," since doubles may not be exactly equal. Epsilon lets you describe how close they Other popular test frameworks such as TestNG and MsTest also have similar AssertEqual methods.

and from there I arrived at a system of four equations from where I could find the desired values. However, there's quite a bit of work to do it this way Both sides are identical polynomial expressions. The roots of the right are r,r,s,s. The sum of the roots is 6; this is seen by looking at the left.

Before Oshada Fernando collected sharply at short leg to catch the visiting skipper out of his ground, this was another England innings that pitted two supreme performers at the top of their game against one another, with Sri Lanka left-arm spinner Lasith Embuldeniya taking 7-132 in a near lone response to Root's brilliance.

Embuldeniya's wide angle on the crease and ability to find biting turn accounted for openers Dom Sibley and Zak Crawley on day two, and he saw off Jonny Bairstow and Dan Lawrence in similar fashion on Sunday.

Bairstow could only add four to his overnight 24 after a review showed a faint inside edge onto pad that was pouched by Oshada, while Lawrence nicked a beauty to Lahiru Thirimanne at first slip.

Root's immaculate sweep shot meant he was able to largely avoid such problems, even punishing the excellent Embuldeniya with his audacious switch hit.

### The start of something very special - Root delights at Lawrence's debut class

Joe Root's unbeaten century on day two against Sri Lanka in Galle was made all the more enjoyable by his partnership with Dan Lawrence.Root brought up his 18th century in the longest format and reached 168 not out before rain and bad light spared Sri Lanka the punishment of an evening session on day two.

Asserts that two doubles are equal to within a positive delta. If they are not, an AssertionError is thrown. You can use com.google. common .math.DoubleMath.fuzzyEquals( double a , double b, double tolerance) which allows you to specify how close the two doubles should be to each other.

Poise is an invisible bar that lets you not get staggered when you get hit by an attack. When an attack hits you and your poise is depleted, as soon as your stagger animation ends your poise is instantly reset to full. Next, let’s go over what hyper armor frames are and which weapons have them.

Substantial support for the captain finally arrived in the form of Jos Buttler, whose crunching off-side drive and reverse sweep were in good order during a fifth-wicket partnership of 97.

Somewhat unfortunately, the latter shot would prove Buttler's downfall after lunch when, on 55, he struck a delivery from debutant Ramesh Mendis (1-48) into his boot and it looped up for the ever-alert Osada to catch.

The Thirimanne-Embuldeniya combination accounted for Sam Curran, Dom Bess and Mark Wood, although Bess played tidily for an important 32 in a stand of 81 as Root motored on despite beginning to struggle with cramps and back pain.

### Root urges patience from England bowlers in search of win

Root urges patience from England bowlers in search of winCaptain Root starred with the bat as he scored 228 to lead England to 421 in their first innings, but Sri Lanka showed determination and grit to close the day on 156 for two in their second innings, though they still trail by 130 runs.

Root Double is unique amongst visual novels in that it doesn't have a traditional choice system where the player chooses between two or more prewritten options. Rather, it uses a system known as the "Senses Sympathy System ". With this system , the player is occasionally prompted to adjust an

double batchVolDouble = Double .parseDouble(batchVolString) float f = Float.valueOf(maltRequiredString); String test = String.format("%.02f", f); You can also use this technique for making it 2 decimal.

It was a monumental effort over the course of 309 deliveries that did not deserve its cruel sting in the tail.

Root climbs the England charts

England's star batsman passed quite the roll call of fellow greats as he racked up the runs in Galle. He now has 8,238, with Alec Stewart (8,463) next in his sights. The opening match of the series in India next month will be Root's 100th for his country.

Former captain Alastair Cook represented England 161 times in Tests when compiling 12,472 a huge all-time mark but one that looks achievable when his 30-year-old successor is in such good touch.

Embuldeniya wheels away to give Sri Lanka the edge

As much as Root will rightly hog the headlines again, Sri Lanka have their noses in front and owe it all to the indefatigable Embuldeniya, who extracted turn and bounce from a good length with his round arm action throughout.

Without his efforts over the course of 41 relentless overs, the home side's interests in a series-tying win would be no more.

Dickie loves to chirp

Six-and-a-half hours in sapping heat is hard work, even for players in their element like Root and Embuldeniya. Light relief on day three came via the comic stylings of Niroshan Dickwella.

Sri Lanka's wicketkeeper greeted Lawrence to the crease by hailing him as a great player of spin bowling, asking the England youngster if he could teach him some shots. Lawrence was out for three. A later request for Root to give him one of his bats was rebuffed, the centurion telling the Dickwella it would be too heavy. Thankfully, following 92 in the first innings, Dickwella's own seems to be working just fine.

BUMBLE ON THE TEST: There should be a substantial area appropriate for families. Plenty of folk on social media say they'd love to go but have been priced out. MCC have got this one badly wrong. © Provided by Daily Mail David Lloyd feels that the prices for India's visit to Lord's in August are considerably overpriced OK, but cut the reviewsOn the DRS debate, lots of folk seem to be arguing that if the ball is going on to hit the stumps it should be out. A word of warning — Tests would only last three days. Bumble's caveat would be to give each team just one review per innings instead of the current three.
