7th ODI, Colombo: Sri Lanka v England - As it Happened...

Colombo: Sri Lanka`s captain Angelo Mathews won the toss and elected to bat in the seventh and final one-day international against England in Colombo today.


Sri Lanka have won the match by 87 runs and pocket the series 5-2. 

Dilshan star with both bat and ball to pick up the man-of-the-match award.

England, who have already conceded a decisive 2-4 lead in the series, will seek a consolation win ahead of the World Cup that starts in Australia and New Zealand on February 14.

A large crowd is expected at the Premadasa stadium to cheer veterans Kumar Sangakkara and Mahela Jayawardene in their last one-day international on home soil.

Jayawardene, who has already retired from Tests, will hang up his boots after the World Cup. Sangakkara too will quit one-dayers after the tournament, although he remains non-committal about his future in Tests.
England: Alastair Cook (capt), Alex Hales, Moeen Ali, James Taylor, Joe Root, Eoin Morgan, Jos Buttler, Chris Woakes, Chris Jordan, James Tredwell, Harry Gurney.
