I am guilty of accepting what the commentators said without checking up. Sky text is still saying "first series win by England on the sub-continent since 1987" but I noticed that in the Telegraph this morning they refer to the "first major series win for 20 years". Nobody has mentioned the match AH refers to. SL won the second of the 2 match series so it is at least true that England has never won an ODI series in Sri Lanka.

Thanks for putting us right.
