‘We will bowl first. The wicket looks better, dew might come in later. We’re sticking with the same team. The youngsters will gain with this sort of experience. Batting has been a bit of a concern for us. We have the advantage of having played over here.’
‘We would have bowled as well. It’s a different challenge tonight, change in conditions and against challenging opposition. We are playing the same team. Everyone has pulled well and is fresh. It’s extremely important, we have played as a group and that’s the way we will go.’

Sri Lanka Batting
Nissanka and Kusal Perera gets into the crease to chase down the massive target of 164 runs while Moeen Ali opens the bowling attack.
Sri Lanka too needs to build a massive partnership and should maintain the required run rate of 8+ to chase down England’s target. But Moeen Ali in his very first over dismissed Nissanka via run-out dismissal and ends up the over with providing just 2 runs.
Kusal Perera then joins hands with Charith Asalanka and leads Sri Lanka. SL batsmen struggle to make a partnership and start to lose wickets in regular intervals of time. Wanindu Hasaranga scored the team’s best run of 34 from 21 balls.
Sri Lanka puts it all effort but fails to defend England’s bowling attack and wind up the innings with a score of 137 runs while losing all 10 wickets for 19 overs.

Player of the match
I think staying patient was the key (when England lost early wickets), but I managed to get a partnership with Morgan. There was a point when we were thinking to get to the 120-run mark, but then we got going and got 160-plus.
I use the same bat, even in the nets. It feels good. We were under pressure for a long time during that chase. I was trying to guess where he was going to bowl, I was pretty calm and trying to be patient.
