Malinda Pushpakumara claimed a 13-wicket haul and then hit the winning runs as Sri Lanka A completed a dash to victory in Dambulla to square the unofficial Test series with England Lions.

Needing 90 to win during the final session, having been defied for much of the day by Liam Livingstone's second hundred in the match, Sri Lanka A lost wickets regularly but did enough to hold off the Lions' unlikely tilt at snatching victory.

Udara Jayasundera made 32 off 36 and Dhananjaya de Silva, Sri Lanka A's captain, 23 off 13 to bring the target in sight before Pushpakumara finished the job after a late wobble.
