The strategy developed by the English team is paying them high in the shorter format of cricket. They were successful in defeating SriLanka by whole ten wickets in the last game which held on June 24. Openers Alex Hales and Jason Roy made 256 runs in an unbeaten partnership. Hales made 133 while Roy was able to score 112 runs and make their team win at home.
The last victory made them a record. That was the 10tht time when England won by ten wickets in the history till date. Moreover, the opening partnership was also a record, but not just a simple record. It was the highest ever runs scored in the partnership for the first wicket in an ODI by England. The last record of 250 runs made by Andrew Strauss and Jonathan Trott in 2010 against Bangladesh.
This must have delighted the English captain Eoin Morgan with the overall performance of the team with both bat and ball. Bowlers especially Adil Rashid performed extraordinarily and took two wickets for 34 runs, conceding 70 runs in his 20 overs in the series so far. With the squad injury free at the moment, the Three Lions are expected to field the same XI from the second ODI.
Just when it looked like they were on the rise regarding performances, the visitors disappointed their fans once again with a lifeless performance. Dinesh Chandimal, Upul Tharanga and skipper Angelo Mathews aside, Sri Lanka were terrible both with the bat and on the field.
Mathews, who passed a fitness test to play in the second ODI, struggled for mobility at the crease while Chandimal too seemed to suffer from a hamstring strain. While the Sri Lankan team management has not ruled them out of the third game, their absence will be a huge loss for a team which is entirely dependent on the duo.England vs Sri Lanka Live Streaming
