Jos Buttler’s unbeaten 68 helped England to a comfortable eight-wicket win over Sri Lanka in the first Twenty20 in Cardiff.
Chasing 130 to win, Buttler and Jason Roy shared an 86-run opening stand before Roy fell for 36 to a stunning catch from Danushka Gunathilaka.
However, Buttler anchored England as the hosts chased down their target with 17 balls to spare.
Sri Lanka had earlier struggled to 129-7, with Adil Rashid taking 2-17.
Dasun Shanaka starred for the hosts with 50 but they were unable to get to grips with a slow surface.
England bowled well, led by Rashid and Sam Curran, who took 2-35 to help them take a 1-0 lead in the three-match series.
The second match takes place on the same pitch at Sophia Gardens on Thursday.
