The third and final cricket Test between England and Sri Lanka was drawn on Saturday after rain washed out play in the last session of the fifth day.

England, following on 418 runs behind, were 251-6 in their second innings with 35 overs remaining when heavy rain waterlogged the Galle International Stadium and forced the umpires to call off the match.

Sri Lanka took the series 1-0, having won the first Test in Kandy by 88 runs. The second match in Colombo was drawn.
