Colombo, Sri Lanka (AP) — Niroshan Dickwella top-scored with 95 and spin bowler Akila Dananjaya took four wickets to lead Sri Lanka to a confidence-boosting 219-run win on the Duckworth/Lewis method in the fifth and final one-day international against England on Tuesday.
England won the five-match series 3-1, with the first match ending without a result due to rain.
Sri Lanka captain Dinesh Chandimal won the toss and elected to bat first and his batsmen justified his decision by scoring 366-6 in 50 overs. In reply, England were 132-9 in 26.1 overs when heavy rain interrupted play.
Sri Lanka had kept England well below the Duckworth/Lewis par score at the stoppage.
Sadeera Samarawickrama made 54, Chandimal scored 80 and Kusal Mendis struck six sixes for a 33-ball 56 for Sri Lanka.
