England sealed their first major one-day series win on the sub-continent for 20 years with a dominant five-wicket win in Colombo.

The result mean the tourists lead their five-match series 3-1 with just Saturday's final game to play.

The under-pressure Alastair Cook ended a barren spell with the bat with a gritty 80 while Kevin Pietersen ended with 63 not out as England reached their target of 212 with 19 balls to spare.

James Anderson had earlier ended a barren spell of his own to take three for 33 - while left-arm seamer Ryan Sidebottom also grabbed three victims to undermine Sri Lanka's hopes of setting a major total after they had won the toss, the hosts eventually finishing on 211-9.
