.
Moeen Ali to Thisara Perera. Off break length ball, middle stump on the front foot defending, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Ali. Eventually the umpires have decided the rain has become too heavy for the players to carry on. It has become very dark and the groundstaff are running all over trying to get the pitch fully covered. This could be it for the day with England ahead of DLS.And that is that. England win by 31 runs with the game decided off the field. With the start the visitors got with the ball it was always going to be an uphill task for Sri Lanka to reach the DLS target. Olly Stone (1-23) and Chris Woakes (3-26) were superb, a small comeback by Dhananjaya de Silva and Thisara Perera added some fun for the crowd but it wasn't enough. It means that England lead the series 1-0 and both teams now go to Kandy for the third and fourth before Colombo for the fifth.
