Sri Lanka, well-placed at 162 for one overnight, were dismissed for 288 — 128 runs behind England's first innings 416.

Woakes, who took a wicket with his first ball Saturday, ended the innings with the opening delivery of a new spell on the stroke of tea when Shaminda Eranga was caught in the slips by James Vince.

Warwickshire all-rounder Woakes finished with figures of three for 31 in 17.1 overs.
