Buttler, Root deliver England win: 3rd ODI (Hambantota)

Joss Buttler and Joe Root were the stars as England secured a much-needed victory, reducing the overall series to 2-1.

Earlier, Sri Lanka set England a target of 236 in 35 overs, due to rain effecting the start of play.

England 236 for 5 (Moeen 58, Buttler 55*, Root 48*) beat Sri Lanka 242 for 8 (Sangakkara 63, Thirimanne 62*, Woakes 3-41) by 5 wickets (D/L method).
