48.1OUTMalinga to J Anderson, out Bowled!! England have been wiped out for 219. This was the off-speed delivery from Malinga, Anderson looks for an ambitious mow across the line, he is palpably early into it as he misses it completely. The ball hits the off-stump. Fittingly, Malinga leads the Sri Lankan side off the field. J Anderson b Malinga 5(7)219/10
47.3OUTA Mendis to Jordan, out Jordan Run Out!! Kushal Perera is all smiles. A few big hits from Jordan could have boosted the total. This was on a length and on middle, Jordan turns it to mid-wicket, seeks a speedy single. There is a horrendous mix-up between the wickets. Perera's throw is on target - flat and on the bounce as Mendis flicks the bails off. Joran's full length dive amounts to nothing. Jordan run out (K Perera/A Mendis) 30(42) [4s-3]218/9
46.2FOURMalinga to Jordan, FOUR, cracking shot. Jordon enjoyed that as he comes up to his partner and punches gloves. Overpitched and wide outside off, Jordan flays it away past cover, the ball scorches away to the fence215/8
45.1FOURSenanayake to Jordan, FOUR, darted down leg, Jordan swats it away to long leg, Kula gets across and slides but the ball wins the race, reaching the fence205/8
45OUTMalinga to Tredwell, out Bowled!! The Sri Lankan fans are dancing in the isles. Malinga exults. Malinga fires it full and straight, Tredwell aims to force it to the off-side but misses it entirely as the ball thunks into the middle stump. Can England bat out their quota of 50 overs? Tredwell b Malinga 1(5)201/8
43.3OUTSenanayake to Jordan, out Buttler Run Out!! Buttler has been mankaded. Seeing Buttler jump out of the bowling crease, Sena aborts the ball and tips the bails off. He appeals to the umpire. The umpire has a chat with Mathews and sends Buttler back to the hut. Mathews had upheld the appeal. Senanayake had warned Buttler against backing up too far early on. The boos reverberate around Edgbaston. Buttler run out (Senanayake) 21(24) [4s-1]199/7

48.2FOURBopara to Mathews, FOUR, Sri Lanka seal the series 3-2. Mathews punches the air in utter delight. The Sri Lankan dressing room errupts. This was a back of a length ball around off, Mathews slaps it past a diving backward point to win it in style. The players exchange pleasantries. Cook has a sharp word with Mathews. With this famous victory, Sri Lanka surge to second place on the ICC ODI rankings, displacing India222/4
48.1FOURBopara to Mathews, FOUR, horrid ball, slower short ball down leg, Mathews swivels and helps it to the deep fine leg fence218/4
47.5FOURJordan to Mathews, FOUR, Jordan has his hands on his head. Banged in short and on the stumps, Mathews makes room again, carves it wide of third man for his fourth boundary. Mathews is playing a gem of a knock here213/4
46.5DROPPEDJ Anderson to Thirimanne, no run, dropped by Jimmy off his own bowling. Good length ball, stops on Thiri, he checks his drive and lobs it back to the bowler. Jimmy stretches his right hand but the ball does not stick in, it pops out. Could that have been a potential game-changing moment?205/4
46.1FOURJ Anderson to Thirimanne, FOUR, length ball just outside off, Thirimanne picks it up from there and wristily dispatches it to the deep mid wicket fence. It was the slower one and Thiri spotted it205/4
45.5FOURGurney to Mathews, FOUR, thumped! On a back of a length and outside off, Mathews having made room, has enough leverage to thwack it past extra cover, the ball rockets away to the fence201/4
