LONDON: England and Sri Lanka agreed on drawing the third test at Lord's after rain interrupted too often for either to forge a win on the last day Monday.

There were only 12.2 overs of play, in which Sri Lanka, set a monumental 362 to win, moved from 32 without loss overnight to 78 for the loss of only Kaushal Silva, lbw to Jimmy Anderson on 16.

Dimuth Karunarate was unbeaten on 37 and Kusal Mendis on 17, as Sri Lanka preserved a 25-year unbeaten record at the home of cricket.

England won the series 2-0 after big wins at Leeds and Chester-le-Street.

Sri Lanka move on to Ireland for two one-day internationals from Saturday, then return to England for five ODIs and a Twenty20.

Robin told reporters that about 35 people were injured in three days of clashes around Saturday's match at the Stade Velodrome, and that one England fan remained in a critical but stable condition. Brice said almost all the injured were British.

Twenty people were arrested as police struggled to control running street battles between fans in the city's Old Port and on roads leading to the stadium.

Robin said about 150 Russian hooligans evaded attempts to keep them out of France during the month-long tournament, though some others were stopped at Marseille's airport and expelled from the country.
