England vs Sri Lanka: On Tuesday, September 12, the second of the three-match ODI series between England and Sri Lanka is slated to take place at County Ground in Northampton, England. The English side was dismayed by Sri Lanka in the T20Is, but England dominated the ODI series with a resounding seven-wicket victory.
Sri Lanka’s batters must improve their performance and post a commendable total if they are to offer a threat to England, who currently appear to be in excellent form.
In the first ODI, England dominated the visitors, thrashing them for just 106 runs. Together, Mahika Gaur and Sarah Glenn took six wickets to lead England’s bowling attack. Later on, Lauren Filer joined the fray and claimed three wickets to destroy Sri Lanka’s flimsy batting order.
As a result, Tammy Beaumont and Heather Knight scored the majority of the target for England throughout the chase. England was victorious with seven wickets remaining by the conclusion of the 19th over thanks to Maia Bouchier and Nat Sciver-Brunt, who remained uninterrupted to the very finish. From the Lankan side, Oshadi Ranasinghe, Inoka Ranaweera, and Kavisha Dilhari each claimed one wicket.
