England beat Sri Lanka by 42 runs in the third Test in Colombo on Monday to claim their first overseas whitewash in a three-match series in 55 years.

Spinners Jack Leach and Moeen Ali took four wickets each to help bowl out Sri Lanka, who were chasing a daunting 327 for victory, for 284 in the final session on day four.
Kusal Mendis top-scored with 86 while number 11 batsman Malinda Pushpakumara remained unbeaten on 42.

The sweep is England's first in a series involving three or more Tests since 1963, when a team led by Ted Dexter won 3-0 in New Zealand.(AFP)

    Although we lost I am glad to see Mendis is back in form. Cricket is a team game and everyone has to contribute to win a game.
