England have played six matches so far, in which they lost five and won one. It is unfortunate that in this World Cup England team is not able to show his performances as well as in the previous matches. Sri Lanka has won two and lost four of their six matches in the tournament. But their chances of staying in the tournament are still not dead.

The England team decided to bat first. It was not a wrong decision, they made this decision wrong. The best choice was that they scored more runs and gave them a massive target which they could not handle. But they scored just 156 runs. To accept a target like this from a champion team was surprising. But Sri Lankan bowlers did great work.

Jonny Bairstow and Dawid Malan arrived at the ground to play and gave a better start to the team. But they could have only 45 runs opening and Dawid was dismissed by Rajitha. Joe Root added just 3 runs and his wicket dropped down in 57 runs. In addition, Sri Lankan bowlers did great bowling and didn’t let them score easily. Dawid was also out by Mathews. The wickets dropped one by one. Ben Stokes scored 43 runs but for scoring these runs he took 73 balls. He played a very slow innings. No player from the England team scored a half-century.

Jos Buttler played 6 deliveries but it was the bad luck of the team that the power hitter Buttler also could not score more runs. He went to the pavilion after scoring just 8 runs. Moeen Ali and David Willey added 15 and 14 runs respectively. On just 156 runs, the entire England team was out.
