JOE DENLY IS THE MAN OF THE MATCH.

One wonders what would have happened had Jason Roy's chances been taken - even one of them. He was put down on 20 by Udana, then on 34 by Samarawickrama and finally on 41 by Shanaka, before being eventually dismissed for 69. Please stay tuned for the presentation.

Joe Denly was the surprise pick, with 4 wickets but the real star of the bowling was Adil Rashid, with a 3-fer. Jordan was economical, with 2 scalps. Sri Lanka, well, just tried to hit hard, had a few good shots but ended up missing more than hitting. Thisara Perera got a half century for the records.

Comfortable win for England. Jason Roy's 69 set things up, albeit he was dropped thrice while with the ball, the visitors were just too good. The yorkers found their mark while the slower ones foxed the batsmen.

C Jordan to A Aponso, OUT! Bowled! Lock, stock and barrel! A terrific yorker from Jordan. Right at the base of the stumps and at a good pace too. Amila is very late in getting his bat down and the Zinc bails glow. So after that six, it has been 1, W, 0, W.

L Plunkett to D Shanaka, OUT! Bowled! The slower delivery does the trick. It is pitched on a length and Shanaka swings months early in advance. He misses and the ball hits the timber. Possibly the last chance for Sri Lanka goes. Thisara is all alone now.
