England and Sri Lanka draw at Lords

No suprises at Lords on the final day of the 2nd Test match between England and Sri Lanka. England set the tourists a total of 343 in 58 overs to win, but Tharanga Paranavitana (44) showed courage and kept the English at bay. The  Sri Lankans battled their way to 127-3 before the teams decided to settle for a draw.

England thus take a 1-0 series lead to the Rose Bowl where the teams will meet for the third and final test  later this month. It has been confirmed in the mean time that Tillakaratne Dilshan, the Sri Lankan captain, has been ruled out for the third test because of a broken thumb.
