MANCHESTER, England - England has won the toss and will bowl first in the third one-day international at Old Trafford on Wednesday, with the five-match series tied at 1-1.

England's only change to the team that was beaten by 157 runs in the second match of the series saw the return of captain Alastair Cook, who replaces Michael Carberry at the top of the order.

Sri Lanka also made one change for the day-nighter, with Rangana Herath coming in for Dhammika Prasad to give the touring side two spinners.

Incessant morning rain eased by the time the toss was taken. Play will start 20 minutes later than scheduled.
