All-rounder Chris Jordan will be available for England's second ODI against Sri Lanka at Chester-le-Street in Durham on Sunday, despite hurting an ankle during the series opener at The Oval in London on Thursday.

Jordan's quickfire, career-best 38 not out capped a formidable final total of 247 for six, after which three key wickets resigned the opposition to a severely insufficient 144 all out.

The 81-run triumph, adjusted by the Duckworth-Lewis system after inclement weather reduced the first innings to 39 overs and the second to a maximum of 32, afforded the hosts a vital early lead in the five-match series.

"Just running after that ball I twisted my ankle a bit, but it's nothing too serious," said the Barbados-born Jordan, who was named Man of the Match.

"I enjoyed batting the ball around the park and bowling with some aggression so there's nothing in it. I had six great years here a Surrey so it was nice to come back."

The third, fourth and fifth ODIs will be played at Old Trafford in Manchester, Lord's in London and Edgbaston in Birmingham on 28 and 31 May – and 3 June – respectively.
