England vs Sri Lanka: This is the uncertainty of cricket. The England team did not lose any ODI in Leeds since 2011, but when Shri Lanka defeated them, everyone was surprised. At the same time, the fourth team of the semi-finals became even more exciting.
It happened on Friday in World Cup 2019. Sri Lanka defeated the England team by 20 runs in the tournament. England started chasing 233 runs on a hard pitch and there opener Johnny Bairstow out on zero. Two more wickets fell on regular intervals.
after that, Joe Root (57 runs, 89 balls, 3 fours) made a good base for England while making the half-century. Ben Stokes (unbeaten 82 runs, 89 balls, 7 fours, 4 sixes) returned to form after several games after the root was out, taking the English fans’ expectations on his shoulders.
But the problem started from the beginning is that the length of a wicket falling on one end continued at regular intervals. At one time England’s score was about 170 at five wickets in the 38th over. There was no hindrance in the way of the English team, and it seemed that England would easily make their name but once Moin Ali came out, the Sri Lankan team was dominated from here. England lost their last five wickets in 42 runs. Dhananjay Di Silva made the first Woaks and Rashid in the same over and brought England to the door of defeat.
And furthering this, Udana and Pradeep quickly stamped on England’s defeat. Overall, it was a double bow to Lasith Malinga and Dhananjay Di Silva, who forced the English team and its supporters to withstand the loss of defeat. The entire English team finished out with 212 runs in 47 overs. Lasith Malinga, who grabbed England’s top order and grabbed four wickets, was adjudged man of the match.
