England claim series win in 'closest ever' test
In the second game of their three match series the action moved to Colombo. England were inserted and made full use of their chance to bat first, ammassing 379 including a massive partnership of 246 between Field and Sugg. Sri Lanka chased well and were agonisingly short of reaching their target, but their 3 run loss gives England an unassailable 2-0 series lead.
