Moeen Ali's sublime maiden one-day international century could not prevent England losing the opening match with Sri Lanka by 25 runs in Colombo.

In only his sixth ODI, the 27-year-old left-hander hit 11 fours and five sixes in 119 from 87 balls.

Ravi Bopara was last out for 65 as England were dismissed in the 48th over to trail in the seven-match series.

Tillakaratne Dilshan hit 10 fours in his 88 as Sri Lanka posted 317 for 6, their highest home ODI score against England.

Mahela Jayawardene made his 75th ODI half-century and skipper Angelo Mathews dispatched the first two balls of the 43rd over for six to bring up the 250.
