Buttler punishes sloppy Sri Lanka: 3rd Test, Day 3 (SSC)

Jos Buttler rescued England after Sri Lanka let slip many chances and their spinners repeatedly overstepped the crease to lose two referrals in suspicious circumstances to leave England on the brink of a series whitewash.

England stumbled to 39-4, but Buttler smashed 64 as England posted 230 to set Sri Lanka 327 to win.

Sri Lanka collapsed to 53-4, still needing another 274 runs, after Moeen Ali struck twice before stumps.

Sri Lanka 240 and 53 for 4 (Mendis 15*, Sandakan 1*) need a further 274 to beat England 336 and 230 (Buttler 64, Dilruwan 5-88).
