2021 England v Sri Lanka ODI, Kia Oval
England face Sri Lanka in a day/night ODI at the Kia Oval.
The last time these two teams met, England were left hugely disappointed. An upset in the round robin stages of the World Cup was one of the biggest talking points in the tournament.
Sri Lanka will be looking to defy the odds again but will face a tough task against current World Champs England.
England have one of the deepest batting line ups in the format, with the ability to take games away from the very best bowling line-ups. Sri Lanka’s bowlers will need to be on top form to restrict England.

England v Sri Lanka 2021
England v Sri Lanka 2021 – Sri Lanka will take on England the World No1 cricket team on home turf. This will be a tough ask as Australia are the only team to have come away with a series win in the UK since 2015. Sri Lanka will have to be right at the very top of their game if they are to come away with the bragging rights. England will want to get back to winning ways after arriving home from a tough winter in India and South Africa.
Sri Lanka are back in the UK! The first time since the memorable 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup. Back in 2019 Sri Lanka upset England in the round robin stages. However, it was England who went on to clinch the title of World Champions. It was one of the biggest upsets of the tournament. Taking a monumental effort from a young and a relatively inexperienced Sri Lanka team.
The fixture was played at Headingly Carnegie, the home of Yorkshire CC. Sri Lanka won the toss and decided to bat. Notable contributions from Angelo Mathews 85* (115), Avishka Fernando 49 (39) and Kusal Mendis 46 (68) took Sri Lanka’s score up to 232/9 (50). The England bowlers had an even spread of wickets, but it was Mark Wood 3/40 (8), Jofra Archer 3/52 (10) and Adil Rashid 2/45 (10) with the best returns.
This should have been as a run of the mill chase for England. A team who have become notorious for regularly chasing or setting scores of 300+. However, a slow start and regular wickets created huge scoreboard pressure heading into the final overs of the game. Mr reliable Ben Stokes 82* (89) nearly got England home as he has on so many occasions. However, a Man of the Match performance from Lasith Malinga 4/43 (10) and Dhananjaya de Silva’s 3/32 (8) restricted England to 212 all out falling 21 runs short.
