Rain frustrates England and Sri Lanka
LONDON, June 13 (Reuters) – The third and final test between England and Sri Lanka ended in a draw after persistent rain allowed only 12.2 overs of play on the last day at Lord’s on Monday.
Sri Lanka, chasing 362 for victory, went from 32 for no wickets to 78 for one between the showers, but neither side had any chance of forcing victory and England won the series 2-0.
England fast bowler James Anderson trapped Kaushal Silva lbw for 16 with an excellent inswinging delivery to claim the only wicket.
Dimuth Karunaratne finished unbeaten on 37 with Kusal Mendis on 17.
Mendis hit the last ball of the match by Joe Root for six before rain returned.
