COLOMBO: Sri Lanka captain Dinesh Chandimal won the toss and elected to bat against England in the fifth and final one-day international in Colombo on Tuesday.
The hosts, who trail 3-0 in a series badly affected by the Sri Lankan monsoons, after the opener was washed out, have made two changes in their bid for a consolation win.
Fast bowler Dushmantha Chameera and left-arm wrist spinner Lakshan Sandakan come into the XI in place of Lasith Malinga and Amila Aponso.
England have made three changes to their starting line-up with wicketkeeper-batsman Jos Buttler leading the side in the absence of captain Eoin Morgan, who is rested.
Liam Plunkett, Sam Curran and Mark Wood come in for Morgan, Chris Woakes and Olly Stone.
