Sussex bowler Chris Jordan produced an irresistible spell as England's bowlers returned fire on Sri Lanka in their descent to 67 all out in 24 overs at Emirates Old Trafford today.

Only three days ago, England were collapsing to 99 all out in Durham as Sri Lanka levelled this Royal London one-day international series at 1-1.

But Alastair Cook, back from the groin strain which ruled him out in the north-east, simply won the toss under heavy cloud cover and then unleashed James Anderson and Jordan - who finished with a career-best five for 29 in Sri Lanka's third-lowest ODI total.

It should leave England with a simple target to take a 201 series lead.
