Angelo Mathews ensured Sri Lanka don't slip further and scored the winning runs. Tredwell grabbed 2/30 in his 10 overs while Anderson and Jordan got one wicket each. No other English bowler was successful. The highlight of the match was the Buttler dismissal where he was out Mankading by Senanayake.

!

Comprehensive victory for Sri Lanka as they win the series 3-2! 220 was never going to be tough for Sri Lanka on this good batting wicket. The openers gave a quick start but lost some momentum. Jayawardene and Thirimanne then guided the tourists towards safety as England failed to apply more pressure.
