ENG vs SL Highlights

Pathum Nissanka and Sadeera Samarawickrama steered Sri Lanka to an eight-wicket win over England in arguably the do or die match for both the sides in World Cup 2023.  

Chasing a low total of 157, Sri Lanka looked in trouble at 23 for 2 in 5.2 overs, but Nissanka’s 77 and Samarawickrama’s 66 guided Sri Lanka to win with 24 overs to spare.  

Sri Lanka climbed up to fifth place with a win over England, keeping their semi-finals hopes alive. While England’s hopes of advancing to the knockout stages were harmed by their third consecutive defeat.

Opting to bat, England made a steady start with 45 on board in 6.2 without any loss, but Angelo Mathews, who came in team as replacement for injured Pathirana, provided Sri Lanka the breakthrough in his third ball of the over that also exposed the batting line-up of the defending side once again in the mega event.  

Stokes (43) did try his hand and a lack of support from the other end resulted in Stokes’ dismissal as he tried to clear the fence but was caught at boundary.  

Lahiru Kumara was the pick of the bowler for Sri Lanka with 3 wickets, while Rajitha and Mathews shared 2-2 each.

Sri Lanka too faced a shaky start when they lost their two wickets early, but a clinical batting display form Pathum Nissanka and Sadeera Samarawickrama put the game in Sri Lanka’s favour.  

Nissanka played a knock of unbeaten 77 in 83 balls, while Sadeerawickrama shot 65 in 54 deliveries. The Island side riding high on these two batters’ performances chased down the target in 25.4 overs.  

With this win, Sri Lanka climbed up to the points table and occupied the fifth spot, while the loss slipped England further to ninth.
