Chasing a target of 151 in the 21-overs-a-side contest, the tourists rode on an unbeaten 49-ball 58 from skipper Eoin Morgan and Ben Stokes' 24-ball 35 to cross the finish line in 18.3 overs. Meanwhile, Adil Rashid was the pick of the bowlers from England who took four wickets to rattle the middle order batting line-up.

Earlier put in to bat after almost six hours of play was lost due to rain, the hosts were off to a breezy start courtesy of a 20-ball 36 from Niroshan Dickwella. He made 41 off 26 balls.

Rashid returned 4-36 in five overs while Tom Curran had 3-17 off four overs.

Jonny Bairstow drove the left-arm spinner to mid-off and Amila Aponso also bowled Joe Root via his front pad.

With Angelo Mathews absent, Dasun Shanaka is the new man at No.5 in the Sri Lanka one-day worldwide squad, and he wants to grab the opportunity that's come his way.

"To restrict them to 150 on a surface like this was a fantastic effort".

How Apple got us to pay so much for the iPhone
Telstra is promoting a 24-month 90GB lease plan for $119 a month for the iPhone XS 64GB phone and $134 for iPhone XS Max 64GB. However, the company did include an adapter so that users could continue using their wired headphones, if they wanted do.

If Curran started the rot with a ideal slower-ball delivered out of the back of his hand - Dickwella's attempt to hit over the top resulted in a comfortable catch for mid-off - it was Rashid who inflicted the more serious damage. But Niroshan Dickwella's flurry of scoops punched drives, and uppercuts got the locals pumped up as the cricketer in partnership with Sadeera Samarawickrama blazed 8 fours and put 55 runs on the board in the first five overs.

Rashid struck again in successive balls in the 13th over as Samarawickrama (35) edged a waist-high full toss to square leg before Thisara Perera was tempted by a flighted delivery that a diving Roy held on to.

That was as good as it got for the hosts, though, with their next 16 overs yielding 95 runs and nine wickets.

Sri Lanka's allover result appeared lean with Curran's direct hit off the final ball of the innings and two run outs in the way.

It is hard to see England how will not win the remaining two matches and the T20 game that follows.

Sri Lanka have added Kusal Mendis to their ODI squad for the remaining two matches versus England as replacement for the injured Kusal Perera, who on Tuesday was ruled out of the last three ODIs due to an injury suffered in Dambulla over the weekend.
