Joe Root struck a measured 93 as England completed a 3-nil series win over Sri Lanka with a 122-run victory in the fifth one-day international at Cardiff.

Root helped England to 324 for 7, sharing a 109-run stand with Jos Buttler, who made 70 off 45 balls.

David Willey took 4 for 34 and Liam Plunkett 3-44 to help Sri Lanka out for 202 with 7.2 overs unused.
