England was denied the chance to press for a series whitewash over Sri Lanka as rain ruined the final day of the third Test at Lord's.

Only 12.2 overs were possible in two spells, during which Sri Lanka progressed from 32 for 0 to 78 for 1 in pursuit of a notional 362 to win.

Kaushal Silva was the sole wicket to fall, lbw to James Anderson, before play was called off.

A five-match one-day series starts on 21st June, followed by a T20.

Dimuth Karunaratne finished unbeaten on 37, while Kusal Mendis made 17 not out, hitting Joe Root for 6 off the final ball of the match.
