England finished their preparations for the Test series against Sri Lanka with a draw in their final warm-up match in Colombo.

The tourists batted first against the Sri Lanka Board XI but were reduced to 2for 3, with Test hopefuls Joe Denly and Ollie Pope both falling for nought.

However, all-rounder Ben Stokes made 53 from 58 balls and opener Keaton Jennings 45 as England posted 210 for 6.

Wickets were spread around as the home side made 200 for 7 in response.

Both sides agreed to bat for 50 overs after the opening day's play was washed out, but of the top-order batsmen it was only Jennings who made an impression.
