England's fifth one-day international against Sri Lanka was disrupted by rain and will resume today.

Chris Woakes took 6 for 47, the third best figures by an England bowler in ODIs, as Sri Lanka were bowled out for 239 before the weather intervened.

Kumar Sangakkara made 91 for the hosts, his fourth successive half-century.

If there is no rain today, England, 3-1 down in the seven-match series, will begin their chase of 240 from the full 50 overs.

If they are to keep the series alive, they will have to reach a total that is at least competitive on a Pallekele pitch that has turned throughout and will be used by the home side's four spinners.
