Chris Woakes has provided England the much-needed breakthrough as Kusal Mendis flicks a slower ball to deep square leg and Liam Livingstone takes a fine running catch. The openers had made an ideal start but England have drawn first blood inside the PowerPlay. Sri Lanka are 39/1 in 5.2 overs.

Earlier, Sri Lanka has won the toss and elected to bat on a used pitch.
