Woakes (137), unbeaten on 84 alongside Scott Borthwick overnight, went on to finish with 16 fours from 232 balls.

His sixth-wicket partner Borthwick fell just a single short of his hundred when left-arm seamer Vishwa Fernando had the all-rounder lbw to end a stand of 197.

Woakes was eventually seventh out, to Test off-spinner Suraj Randiv - who finished with figures of five for 107.

Sri Lanka A's batsmen also demonstrated their liking for the Premadasa Stadium surface, closing on 166 for one - with Test opener Upul Tharanga unbeaten on 102.

Graham Onions was the Lions' only successful bowler, trapping Dimuth Karunaratne lbw.

The tourists lead the series 1-0.
