England will need to take 10 Sri Lanka wickets on the final day of the 3rd Test to wrap up a 3 nil series whitewash.

Alex Hales brought up his third fifty of the series but was out for 94, with England declaring on 233 for 7 to set a target of 362.

Dimuth Karunaratne and Kaushal Silva safely negotiated 12 overs as Sri Lanka reached 32 for no loss at the close of day four.

Victory in this match will give England the series 3 nil and a 12 nil points lead - having won the previous Tests at Headingley and Chester-le-Street.
