Defending champions England were knocked out of the World Twenty20 - after dropping Danny Briggs.
England's 19-run defeat in their Super Eight match against hosts Sri Lanka saw them bow out of the competition in Pallekele.
Having replaced Briggs, Samit Patel provided hope with a 48-ball 67 before he became a fifth victim for Lasith Malinga (5-31).
Patel had conceded 27 from his two overs as England conceded 169-6 before being restricted to 150-9 in reply.
