England played against Sri Lanka on the fourth international day at Kandy on Saturday, trying to extend their lead by 2-0.

The series was hit by rain, but England managed to emerge at the top of the two lowered games they've been able to play so far.

On Wednesday the men of Eoin Morgan came out on top of the standings, winning seven wickets with 15 balls remaining while passing the score of the hosts of 150 for nine out of 21.

The same captain entered the scene in half a century, while the solid scores of Jason Roy (41) and Ben Stokes (35 not outgoing) helped the tourists to achieve victory.

Morgan and Co hope to have more of the same Saturday, however a late injury at the opening of the batsman Jonny Bairstow could derail their established opening pair.

Joe Denly may be in line to replace Bairstow in Kandy if the Yorkshireman will not pass his last fitness test after missing out on Friday's warm-up.

England has a five day series of a day against Sri Lanka before playing in three test games in November.
