Sri Lanka would not have thought about an easy defeat in last game. England managed to chase down 305 on the board comprehensively. Moeen Ali departed early in the inning but Joe Root and Jason Roy put up a massive partnership of 149 runs to avoid any niggles and bring England back in comfortable position.
Despite losing Joe Root, Roy did not changed his game and continued to score at good pace. He got to his hundred off 74 balls. Eventually it turned out that he fell 6 runs short of recording the highest ever individual score in ODIs for England.
Sri Lanka displayed a good performance with bat but their weak bowling were badly exposed. Despite posting a good total in a rain curtailed game of 42 overs, they failed to defend. Apart form regular performer Angelo Mathews (67 runs) and Dinesh Chandimal (63 runs) a good impressive inning came from Danushka Gunathilaka and Kushal Mendis who scored 62 and 77 respectively.
Now Sri Lanka have opportunity to give chance to their players who have been warming the bench and gain a moral victory winning last game of the series.
