Except for Dasun Shanaka, no Sri Lankan batsmen looked comfortable against England bowlers. The 29-year-old all-rounder scored an unbeaten 48 runs off 65 balls.
Sri Lanka got off to a bad start as they lost skipper Kusal Perera in the third over. The visitors never really recovered as they lost half their side inside 15 overs for just 63 runs.

Sri Lanka batsmen stitched brief stand but wickets kept falling at regular intervals and the visitors were folded for 166

England dominated Sri Lanka in every match in the tour. The hosts also won the T20I series 3-0 after thrashing Sri Lanka in all the games. In the ODIs too, Sri Lanka struggled to put on runs and even if they did England chased down quite comfortably in the end.

Brief scores: Sri Lanka 166/10 (Dasun Shanaka 48*; Tom Curran 4-35) vs England
