England whitewash Sri Lanka

The visiting English team whitewashed the Test series against Sri Lanka 3-0 after winning the final Test match by 42 runs.
Chasing a target of 327 runs, Sri Lanka could only secure 284 runs before their batting line collapsed.
Although Captain Suranga Lakmal and Malinda Pushpakumara held a 58-run partnership for the final wicket, in a final bid to scrape through, their attempt was in vain.
In addition to the Test series, England also won the ODI and T20 series during their Sri Lankan tour. Plus, this is considered the first time an England Test team had whitewashed Sri Lanka on their home grounds.
Scores of the 3rd Test : 
First Innings
England 336/10
Sri Lanka 240/10 
Second Innings
England 230/10 
SriLanka 284/10
