England captain Alastair Cook will return for the fifth one-day international against Sri Lanka.

Cook, who was banned for the fourth ODI defeat, is likely to return in place of Alex Hales, while off-spinner James Tredwell could come in for Ben Stokes.

At 3-1 down in the seven-match series, England must win in Pallekele to have a chance of overall victory.

Sri Lanka have called up Sachithra Senanayake after he was cleared to bowl again following a ban.

The off-spinner, who was suspended for an illegal bowling action, replaces Rangana Herath, who has a hamstring injury.
