Alex Hales became the first England player to score a Twenty20 century as they pulled off a memorable six-wicket win over Sri Lanka in World Twenty20 Group One in Chittagong.

Hales, who made an unbeaten 116 off 64 balls, hit a six to bring up his hundred and hammered another to wrap up victory with four balls to spare.

He put on 152 with Eoin Morgan after England were reduced to 0-2.

It looked to be a target beyond England's reach when they lost Michael Lumb and Moeen Ali without scoring in the first over, but Hales produced an astonishing display of hitting to steer England to their first victory of the tournament following a weather-affected loss to New Zealand in their opening game.
