The hosts, chasing a notional 462 victory, were all out for 250 on day four, with Moeen Ali taking four wickets and Jack Leach three.

In England's second innings an assured unbeaten 146 by Keaton Jennings, his first century since a ton on his 2016 debut that has silenced his critics for now at least, allowed Root to declare at 322 for six.

"The danger for us is that if he is not 100 percent fit, he may not play".

"Chandimal's injury is grade one tear, and it will take 10 to 14 days to recover, so it will be touch and go for the second test match", coach Chandika Hathurusingha said. We have 22 million people in Sri Lanka so very few people get these opportunities and that is a remarkable achievement and an honour for any player.

For Sri Lanka, it left them with plenty of questions, about how they'll replace Herath, why their batsmen couldn't kick on from starts, and why England adapted better to conditions than they did.

Shark nets at Shelly Beach and four others on the north coast were removed in May after a almost five-month NSW government trial. On Monday, a shark killed a man in a harbor in the Whitsunday Islands, where two tourists were mauled in September.

"Losing is never a good result for any team but hopefully the guys will come back strongly for the next two Tests", the 4o-year-old told Sky Sports moments after the loss.

Kaushal was leg before sweeping Leach for 30 and Karunaratne skipped down the pitch and was caught and bowled by Ali for 26.

England, with a 139-run first-innings lead and 38-0 overnight, lost a somewhat shaky Rory Burns, brought in to fill the huge shoes of the retired Alastair Cook, in the morning session, run out for 23.

Sri Lanka were disappointed not to give spin-bowling great Rangana Herath a win in his last match and have concerns over the fitness of captain Dinesh Chandimal, who suffered a groin strain during the match. "Our batting was below-par during the game, you can't stay in the game (with this kind of batting)".

Stokes took out Dhananjaya de Silva (21) with the last ball before lunch to put England in complete control heading into the afternoon session and more steady progress followed.

Karunaratne enjoyed a slice of luck on 16 when he edged Moeen, but Stokes grassed an easy catch at slip.

"To be able to contribute to the team is just awesome", Foakes said after being named man-of-the-match.

Soon afterwards Angelo Mathews, dropped on 18 by James Anderson, went for 53, was caught by Jos Buttler at midwicket with Ali the wicker-taker again. The contributions of offspinner Akila Dananjaya came in for especial scrutiny - Dananjaya got only two wickets in the match, and conceded more than 4.7 runs per over.

"It is very disappointing with the way we got out. getting out to the traps they set".
