Joe Root's unbeaten century helped England Lions clinch a 3-2 win in the unofficial one-day series against Sri Lanka A with a 117-run win in Colombo.
The Yorkshire batsman made 110 not out while Jos Buttler hit 64 as the Lions ran up 330 for six. Danny Briggs and Samit Patel then took three wickets each as Sri Lanka A were dismissed for 213.
Meanwhile Yuvraj Singh's cancer is curable, a New Delhi oncologist said yesterday. The India batsman is suffering from "mediastinal seminoma".
