Colombo: England`s stand-in captain Eoin Morgan won the toss and elected to bat in the fourth one-day international against Sri Lanka in Colombo on Sunday.
Morgan was leading the tourists after regular skipper Alastair Cook was suspended for one match due to his team`s slow over-rate in the previous match in Hambantota.
Cook was replaced by James Taylor with England needing a win to level the seven-match series 2-2.
Star batsman Mahela Jayawardene returned for Sri Lanka after sitting out the previous game for personal reasons.
England: Eoin Morgan (capt), Moeen Ali, Alex Hales, James Taylor, Joe Root, Ravi Bopara, Jos Buttler, Ben Stokes, Chris Woakes, Chris Jordan, Steven Finn.
Sri Lanka: Angelo Mathews (capt), Tillakaratne Dilshan, Kusal Perera, Kumar Sangakkara, Mahela Jayawardene, Lahiru Thirimanne, Jeevan Mendis, Thisara Perera, Dhammika Prasad, Rangana Herath, Ajantha Mendis.
