Scorecard

Sri Lanka Under-19s cruised to a seven-wicket win against England Under-19s in the third match of the triangular series being played in Colombo. Chasing 209, they cantered home with more than 11 overs to spare after a second-wicket stand of 106 between Kushal Perera and Dinesh Chandimal .

Chandimal, the wicketkeeper, and Dilshan Munaweera added 68 in eight overs for the first wicket as Sri Lanka sped out of the blocks in their chase. Munaweera clubbed six fours and three sixes in a 32-ball 45 before being bowled by James Goodman but the momentum was firmly with Sri Lanka.

Chandimal and Perera continued the comfortable progress with a pair of composed half centuries, adding 106 in 23 overs, as England's bowlers laboured to find a breakthrough. Alex Wakely used seven options, however by the time Hampshire's Liam Dawson struck, the match was a lost cause.

Earlier, England had again been let down by their top-order batting, although not quite in the same way as the Pakistan match when they crashed to 44 for 5. James Taylor and Greg Wood both made 43 and Ben Brown followed his match-winning 93 against Pakistan with a brisk 38 off 24 balls. Sri Lanka's bowlers, though, performed as a unit and the target proved a cakewalk.
