Opening batsman Tillakaratne Dilshan scored his 13th ODI century and remained unbeaten at the end of Sri Lanka’s innings.

Thisara Perera, who was promoted up the order ahead of Angelo Mathews and Lahiru Thirimanne, hit two much-needed sixers in his 14-ball 24.

Earlier, Mahela Jayawardene joined Dilshan to add 86 runs for the 4th wicket. The Sri Lankan captain made a valuable half-century for his side.

Sri Lanka 280/4 (50 overs) – T Dilshan 119 (139), M Jayawardene 53 (45) – S Ajmal 1/49, S Afridi 1/50.
