Eng win series on Cook's day
Alastair Cook became the first England batsman to score 10,000 Test runs as his side sealed a series win over Sri Lanka at the Riverside on Monday.
England won the second Test by nine wickets with more than a day to spare to go an unassailable 2-0 up in the three-match series.
Set 79 for victory after making Sri Lanka follow-on, England finished on 80 for one.
Left-handed opener Cook was 47 not out and Nick Compton, who hit the winning runs 22 not out.
His innings saw Cook score the five he needed to become just the 12th player of all time to make 10,000 Test runs.
Cook reached the landmark when he clipped Nuwan Pradeep for four through mid-wicket, having got off the mark with an edged single against left-arm spinner Rangana Herath.
At 31 years and 157 days he was the youngest player ever to achieve the feat, beating the previous record of India great Sachin Tendulkar (31 years and 326 days).
Earlier, Dinesh Chandimal made it all possible by ensuring that England bat again as the Sri Lankan scored an excellent hundred to lead Sri Lanka to 475 in their second innings.
Chandimal's 126 was his sixth hundred in 27 Tests but first outside Asia.
He received excellent support from Rangana Herath (61) in seventh-wicket stand of 116.
Sri Lanka resumed on 309 for five, 88 runs adrift of England's 498 for nine declared built around Moeen Ali's Test-best 155 not out.
Chandimal was 54 not out overnight and Milinda Siriwardana unbeaten on 35 after Sri Lanka captain Angelo Mathews (80) and Kaushal Silva (60) initially kept England at bay.
Siriwardana had not added a run to his overnight score when he edged Anderson straight to Alex Hales at gully to end a stand worth 92.
Chandimal, however, cover-drove Broad for four and late-cut Anderson behind point for another boundary.
