BIRMINGHAM, England - England won the toss and decided to bat first against Sri Lanka in their one-day international series finale at Edgbaston on Tuesday.

The series was tied 2-2.

England, which has led twice in the series, was unchanged from the side which lost by seven runs at Lord's on Saturday.

Sri Lanka was also unchanged, meaning offspinner Sachithra Senanayake plays despite being reported for a suspect illegal bowling action after the game last Saturday.
