The 2nd match of the ODI series between Sri Lanka and England will be played on Thursday, 1st July at Kennington Oval, London.
Sri Lankan bowlers kept the English batsmen tied, for the most part, they even threatened to bowl them out but the dropped catches and low target didn’t help their cause.
Had they had a few more runs or took all their catches, the result could have been a bit different, none the less a fight was seen from the Sri Lankan team and they will be hoping for their batsmen to apply themselves better and out better scores next time around. Kusal Perera scored 76 runs while Wanindu Hasaranga scored a half-century for them in the previous match, while Dushmantha Chameera took 3 wickets.
Srilanka: Kusal Perera (c), Dhananjaya de Silva, Dasun Shanaka, Ashen Bandara, Pathum Nissanka, Wanidu Hasaranga, Dushmantha Chameera, Dhananjaya Lakshan, Isuru Udana, Ramesh Mendis, Charith Asalanka
England: Liam Livingstone, Jonny Bairstow, Dawid Malan, Eoin Morgan, Sam Billings, Sam Curran, Adil Rashid, Chris Woakes, Mark Wood, Moeen Ali, David Willey
It’s a high-scoring venue. Out of the last 5 matches played here, the teams batting first have posted 300-plus scores in 3 of those. Going with the team combination of both sides, whoever wins the toss should bat first.
