England opening batsman Jason Roy led a charmed life to smash 69 off 36 balls before leg-spin duo Joe Denly and Adil Rashid shared seven wickets to lead the tourists to a 30-run win over Sri Lanka in a lone twenty20 international on Saturday. England, who won the five-match one-day international series 3-1 against the hosts, posted 187-8 in their rain-interrupted innings after being put in to bat first. Sri Lanka lost the top half of their batting to the England spinners with just 77 on the board and were finally all out for 157 on the last ball of their innings.
