England wrap up T20 series with 89-run victory

    England won the final match of the Twenty20 against Sri Lanka with a nice victory with 89 wins, giving the hosts a sweeping score of 3-0 in Southampton on Saturday.

    Chasing 181 to win after the English Open put together a century stand, Sri Lanka collapsed and lost wickets at regular intervals as fast bowler David Willey finished 3-27, while five others took at least one wicket.

    Earlier, England finished their standings 180-6 after opening winners Dawid Malan (76) and Jonny Bairstow (51) built 105 stops. Malan was on the sidelines as a replacement for Jos Buttler, who was ruled out with a broken calf.

    The pair broke five boundaries each, while Malan also gave the rope four times, with Isuru Udana and Wanindu Hasaranga taking the brunt of the catastrophic blows, conceding 55 and 42 tracks respectively.

    Seamer Dushmantha Chameera was the only Lanka bowler to be able to walk back to the stand with his head held high after finishing his spell with a 4-17 best career, dismissing Malan and clearing the middle class.

    The two teams will advance to a one-day international three-game series starting Tuesday at Chester-le-Street.
