  • Sri Lanka vs England T20 Live Cricket Score Sri Lanka take on England

Ali raced to 27 off 11 balls (one four, three sixes) before being bowled out by off-spinner Dhananjaya de Silva as England made their way to a competitive 187-8 in their 20 overs. "But that was the most important thing in today's game also", said Thisara.

Joe Denly was the wrecker-in-chief as he returned with a figure of 4-19 in his four overs.

England brought back batsman Joe Denly for his first global in eight years.

Sri Lanka captain Thisara Perera top-scored for his side with 57 in 31 balls but his knock was too little too late.

Fresh from piling on 366 against England in the final one-dayer, Sri Lanka are hopeful the tables they turned on Tuesday will remain upended, that the boots will stay switched, and that their batsmen will continue their plunder in the T20 on Saturday. The premier fast bowler has had a fine return to the game and scalped two wickets for 30 runs. Roy was spilled in the deep three times, and the first two chances off the bowling of Lakshan Sandakan were particularly straightforward. Stokes made 24 off his next 21.

After a thrashing in the ODI series, Sri Lanka had some momentum coming into this one-off fixture in Colombo, given that they had won the dead-rubber final ODI by over 200 runs.

Afterwards, I might let him know that I can help him communicate that a little bit better and, you know, we should work on that. The scene was filmed after the Marjory Stoneman Douglas shooting in February left 17 dead, which Kim said impacted her greatly.

The finishing touches to England's batting innings were provided by their talisman all-rounder Moeen Ali.

With his googly in rude health and a clever change in pace he was near impossible to get hold of, Dinesh Chandimal and Kamindu Mendis both tried and failed, Hales on hand to catch them in the deep.

Denly also contributed 20 and earned the man-of-the-match award.

Denly shattered the stumps of Niroshan Dickwella and Mendis to push Lanka on the back-foot from the begining. Malinga picked up a five-wicket haul in the second ODI and Thisara Perera, who is leading the side will expect a similar effort from the veteran pacer come the T20I.

England's Joe Denly, left, reacts after dismissing Sri Lanka's Niroshan Dickwella, right, during the Twenty20 worldwide cricket match between Sri Lanka and England in Colombo, Sri Lanka, Saturday, Oct. 27, 2018. He smashed four fours and six sixes during his sting at the crease.

"I was younger back then and probably didn't know what to make of it all but being more experienced and playing in various competitions around the world has put me in a good position to step back into worldwide cricket and perform like tonight".
