Sri Lanka finish on 232-9 off the 50 overs, England should cruise it.

Should do but Sri Lanka do have a couple of really awkward bowlers and it's already hurt us. We're no rush here and just need Root and Morgan to bat sensibly and build a partnership. They can only win by bowling us out so we just need to not let that happen, we really can't afford to fuck this one up.

Yeah really really poor. For as good as we are, we still have this performance in us at least once a series/tournament.

Ali’s dismissal was pathetic. He’d hit the ball before for six and decided to do the same again. There was no run rate pressure yet he still went for another six when there was absolutely no need.

They’ve never got this sort of shit show of a performance out of their system.

Both teams on the brink of victory, a great game to watch.

Woods nicks it as Stokes looked like he could win the game.

Yep. With the 3 toughest matches to come a semi final spot not assured yet.

Just poor batting from the majority. Needlessly giving wickets away.

Shocking from England, Moeen once again gave his wicket away. Some call Malinga a chucker, he's not, today he was superb.

jokers who call malinga a chucker have no idea about cricket.
mans a legend, with a pot belly, past his best and still comes trumps in the big moments. he enjoys the big moments

england though when the pressure is on, seems to wilt. should make the semis though. India Aus firm fav to win the tourney though

Whacked 20 quid on Sri Lanka to win when they were 12s early on in the innings. Thought it was worth a punt when they'd already taken two wickets.

Ben Stokes spraying 6s all round the ground panicked me into cashing out (England only need 21 to win at that point). Two balls later all over.
