Dinesh Chandimal's unbeaten 105 saw Sri Lanka to a six-wicket win against England in the third one-day international at Lord's on Sunday as the Sri Lankans took a 2-1 lead in the five-match series.
 
Sri Lanka, chasing 247 to win, finished on 249 for four. Chandimal ended the match with 10 balls to spare by striking a four off seamer James Anderson.
 
The 21-year-old Chandimal's hundred was his second in just six matches at this level. England's total of 246 for seven, which featured captain Alastair Cook's career-best 119, never looked enough.
 
That score was put into perspective by a Sri Lankan second-wicket stand of 112 between Chandimal and veteran opener Mahela Jayawardene, who made 79.
Sri Lanka seamers Lasith Malinga and Suranga Lakmal, as well as leg-spinner Jeevan Mendis, all took two wickets each.
 
The series continues with a day/night match at Trent Bridge on Tuesday.
 
Brief scores

England 246-7, 50 overs (A Cook 119)
 
Sri Lanka 249-4, 48.2 overs (D Chandimal 105 no, M Jayawardene 79)

Result: Sri Lanka won by six wickets
 
Series: Sri Lanka lead five-match series 2-1 (AFP)

    Advice to players: Congratulations. Play cricket, don't try and defend GoSL on other matters.
