43.3 Overs: Dilruwan Perera to Dominic Sibley. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot working, to deep square leg for 1 run, fielded by Embuldeniya. That's Game, Set, Match and Series for England. They are the deserved winners of this match. The English spinners will be proud of their performance in the second innings after failing in the first innings. Sri Lanka will be fuming at this loss as they were in total control after first innings. Embuldeniya had an exuberant series picking up 15 wickets. Joe Root is adjudged Player of the Match and Player of the Series for his phenomenal performances with the bat. He has scored a mammoth 426 in this series. Stay tuned for live updates from around the world. Until then, Cheers.
