Joe Root (ENG) MoM: Brilliant Test match, I thought we were good. Can't be more proud of the guys. Sri Lanka played brilliantly in both innings. We played some close games against India, and this was similar to that. We got many dynamic fielders like Jos and Stokes. As a whole squad, we have done really well. We got to keep looking to improve, can't keep still. We want to get to the number 1 rank in the world and we can get there if we play well. We need to keep taking opportunities that are there for us. It's another game to look forward to.
Suranga Lakmal (SL): It was a good game and it was a challenging wicket. Both sides play good cricket. 250 would have been good but 300 was a bit too much. Expect to give out our 100 percent in the next match.
England won by 57 runs and lead the series with 2-0
