Perera returns for Sri Lanka, England win toss

By Blogs - Thu Jun 09, 7:37 am

The 25-year-old wicketkeeper-batsman, recently cleared by the International Cricket Council (ICC) after it was announced in December he failed a drugs test last July, was the only change for the visitors.

England won the toss and elected to bat on a sunny morning as they look to wrap up a 3-0 series win, having dominated the first two matches.

The hosts are unchanged from the second test at Durham which they won by nine wickets.

Perera replaces the injured Milinda Siriwardana.

Sri Lanka captain Angelo Mathews said he hoped his side could offer more resistance this time.
