Kumar Sangakkara reached his 20th hundred in One-Day International (ODI) cricket as Sri Lanka are comfortably placed at 220 for four after 42 overs. This was an excellent knock for the southpaw. Sangakkara came to crease early as Sri Lanka lost a early wicket and English bowlers were bowling good line and length. Tillakaratne Dilshan gave him good support. Both shared a crucial 153 run partnership for the second wicket.

Sri Lanka won an important toss and decided to bat first on a hot and sunny morning at Pallekele. Sri Lanka are currently leading the seven match series 3-2 and an win in this game will seal the series for them. They made three changes as Dinesh Chandimal, Seekkuge Prasanna, and Suranga Lakmal came in for Ajantha Mendis, Kusal Perera and Dhammika Prasad.
