Series victory for SL

Birmingham: Sri Lanka won the final one-day International in Birmingham by six wickets on Tuesday, a game that will be remembered for the controversial run-out of England's Jos Buttler, to triumph 3-2 in the five-match series.

England laboured to 199 for six but had the dangerous Buttler, who made a brilliant 121 in the fourth game at Lord's on Saturday, at the crease on 21.

Led by an opening stand of 76 between Cook (56) and Ian Bell (37), England were bowled out for 219 after electing to bat first. Paceman Lasith Malinga finished with three for 50 from 9.1 overs.
