England vs Sri Lanka Highlights, World Cup 2023: England’s woes deepened as they face a fifth consecutive World Cup loss against Sri Lanka on Thursday at the Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru. England batted first and their top six crumbled just within the first 25 overs of the match in Bengaluru. Jos Buttler won the toss and said that England are batting first. While they got off to a good start , Sri Lanka roared back with veteran Angelo Mathews taking a wicket in the seventh over, which was his first in over three years in ODI cricket. Soon, Jonny Bairstow, Joe Root and Jos Buttler were back in the hut before the 16th over. Ben Stokes then seemed to be setting up a good partnership with Moeen Ali but the latter fell to Mathews on a run-a-ball 15. The stand ended on 37. Chris Woakes fell soon after to a wonderful catch from Sadeera Samarawickrama and England became almost completely reliant on Stokes to get them to a competitive total. The England Test captain, however, fell on 43 off 73 in the 31st over. Eventually, England were wiped off for a score of 156 in 33.2 overs.

Sri Lanka lost their first two wickets in the first six overs but Sadeera Samarawickrama and Pathum Nissanka have looked steady since then. The pair went on to score half-centuries, all but ending England’s chances of victory. Nissanka finished it off with a six and Sri Lanka won by eight wickets with a whopping 146 balls to spare. He was unbeaten on 77 off 83, Samarawickrama on 65 off 54.

lahiru kumara becomes the player of the match with is nice bowling numbers , he took 3 wickets for 35 runs in 7 overs . now with this win SriLankan team dump up onto 5th position in this tournament where they still have chance to be in top 4.
