The final one day international in Sri Lanka ended in disaster for England.
With the series already wrapped up for the tourists, a number of changes were made to accommodate other members of the party who had not yet had a chance to grace the Sri Lankan turf.
The result, unfortunately for England, was a bleak one.
Sri Lanka won the toss and decided to bat first, and opener Niroshan Dickwella shot out the blocks on his way to 95. There were other big scores for Dinesh Chandimal, Kusal Mendis, and Sadeera Samarawickrama.
Wickets came at a premium for England, and their hosts finished their allotted overs on 366-6 – a devilishly pleasing score.
England were pitiful in response, falling to 4-3. A brief revival occurred under the stewardship of Ben Stokes, before rain halted play with England nine wickets down and staring defeat in the face. The Duckworth Lewis method handed Sri Lanka a deserved 219 run victory.
