England will face Sri Lanka in the Third and Final One Day International on July 4, Sunday at the County Ground, Bristol. England have an unassailable lead of 2-0 in the series.
In the second One Day International at the Kennington Oval, England defeated the visitors comfortably by eight wickets. Sam Curran and David Willey led the way for England with the ball. Curran bagged a five-wicket haul to derail the Sri Lankan batting line-up.
For Sri Lanka, their top order’s lackluster performance continued. Dhananjaya De Silva and Dasun Shanaka helped them to reach 241 at the loss of 9 wickets. But, Joe Root and Eoin Morgan’s 140-run stand took England home without any hiccups.
