Third Test drawn
England win series 1-0:
Shown the way by former Captain and stand-in
Captain for the final Npower Test, Kumar Sangakkara who scored his
maiden century on England soil, Sri Lanka managed to salvage a draw
at the Rose Bowl, here today. When the game began on the final day,

determined and courageous batting from the batsmen to stall the
England bowlers from going on the rampage and destroying the innings
like they did in Cardiff.
