5th ODI: Sri Lanka v England at Colombo (RPS) - Oct 13, 2007

Sri Lanka 211 (Silva 73, Broad 3-36) beat England 104 (Fernando 6-27) by 107 runs. Dilhara Fernando's stunning career-best 6 for 27 secured Sri Lanka a consolation 107-run victory in the final one-day international in Colombo.

Their total of 211 again appeared under par, but Fernando took it upon himself to save some national pride with the fifth-best figures by a Sri Lankan in one-day cricket. From a promising 56 for 2, England lost seven wickets in 51 balls, however they still go away with the main prize.
