Mark Wood’s triple strike in an over and some neat death bowling has limited Sri Lanka to 141 for 8 despite Pathum Nissanka’s 67. Barring the openers, none of the batters could kick on to make an impactful contribution, and the promising start that they got was undone by the woes in the slog overs. England would fancy themselves to chase down this below-par score.
Earlier, Sri Lanka won the toss and elected to bat, with Kusal Mendis and Nissanka walking out to open the innings.
