Jos Buttler hit 73 not out after an excellent England bowling and fielding display as Sri Lanka were beaten by eight wickets in the sole T20.

Buttler, promoted to open, was joined by Eoin Morgan who was on 47 not out to get the hosts to a target of 141 in 17.3 overs.

Left-arm spinner Liam Dawson, on debut on his home ground, took 3f or 27, Chris Jordan 3f or 29, and England's electric fielding scored two run-outs.

For Sri Lanka, the defeat completes a miserable tour where they have failed to beat England in any of the 9 international matches.
