Such high drama here at the Rose Bowl.
Sri Lanka win by 2 runs- England started the last over needing 9 runs to win, but debutant Bresnan and wicketkeeper Geraint Jones could only muster 6 runs - they eventually fell 3 runs short of the target.
Sri Lanka, missing their two most experienced players - Vaas and Muralitharan - have come up winners in their maiden Twenty20 International.
The focus now shifts to the One Day International series between these two teams - they meet in the first ODI at Lord's - the home of cricket - on Saturday.
Till then, this is Arun Kumar Gopalakrishnan signing off!
Its the debutant Bresnan on strike - can he get a big one somewhere. He certainly will not want to be on the losing side in his debut match.
5 runs to win off the last ball - England need a certain boundary - a six will see them through, while a four will level the scores.
That brings it down to 6 required from 2 deliveries - England need a boundary now.
Can Fernando ensure he won't bowl a noball or a wide here.
7 off 3 deliveries now - can Bresnan find some gaps in the field. The excitement is building up now
7 from 4 now - this is good bowing under pressure by Fernando
8 from 5 now
England need 9 runs at the start of the last over.
It's going to be Fernando to bowl the last over of the match
Debutant Bresnan is the new batsman
That's the end of a good innings from Trescothick - he was middling the ball well and was scoring runs freely.
With the loss of Trescothick's wicket, will England lose the momentum? They need another 12 more from 8 balls.
Malinga is brought back into the attack
