Match reviews

Just three days ago, England were delighted to escape Mumbai. The weather there was brutal, their opponents South Africa were brutal. Bengaluru offers a cool respite for anyone coming from the coastal city but the heat is still taking hold on Jos Buttler’s side. They have lost as many matches as they did in their entire title-winning campaign in 2019 and their defense of victory is on the verge of falling apart just halfway through this edition.

Sri Lanka arrived in Bengaluru from Lucknow – another city that tests your endurance levels even on a slightly hot day – but the mood in the team was probably a lot less tense. They also only got one win, but it’s the latest result they hope will use as a springboard for the rest of the campaign. – England vs Sri Lanka Live Score


England may not have the time or bandwidth to draw any inferences from their past, even if Sri Lanka have been unbeaten against them in the last four men’s 50-over World Cups. That could be a boost for Sri Lanka – a team that has performed very well in these tests.

The bottom two teams are struggling, separated only by the decimal point difference of their Net Run Rate, meeting on the edge of the World Cup cliff hoping to hang on by pushing the other side into the abyss.

The match will be held on Chinnaswamy stadium, Bengaluru, start at 2:00 PM Local (8:30 AM UTC), Oct 26.


Another World Cup ended cruelly because of Reece Topley’s injury. England chose Brydon Carse as his replacement.

England dropped all their all-rounders in the previous match but failed to achieve the desired results. Moeen Ali admits the change of plans has not worked and he would not be surprised if Britain returned to the old regime. That mean the vice-captain slot in XI might give to Chris Woakes, Sam Curran and Liam Livingstone. – England vs Sri Lanka Live Score

Tactics and Strategy

Another admission from the English side after their humbling Wankhede defeat at the hands of South Africa was that they should have batted first after winning the toss. Relying on his strength to score a big goal and defend it will be the way forward for Buttler’s side for the rest of the tournament. As well as getting the points on offer, England also desperately need to fix their dismal NRR.


With that effort, they might want to improve their death-ball numbers. In the first two matches they batted first, they scored only 58/3 (vs. New Zealand) and 66/6 (vs. Bangladesh) in the last 10 overs.


Jos Buttler (C & WK), Jonny Bairstow, Dawid Malan, Joe Root, Ben Stokes, Harry Brook, David Willey, Adil Rashid, Chris Woakes, Gus Atkinson, Mark Wood, Brydon Carse, Moeen Ali, Liam Livingstone, Sam Curran.

Sri Lanka

Angelo Mathews, who was the batsman and bowler before the match, was a full-time member of Sri Lanka’s 15th squad, coming on as a replacement for the injured Matheesha Pathirana.

Sri Lanka will likely put the former captain in the main squad immediately to replace Chamika Karunaratne. If Dunith Wellalage is fit, he should reclaim his place from Dushan Hemantha. – England vs Sri Lanka Live Score

Tactics and Strategy

Sri Lanka have played on two pristine batting tracks so far and have done very well with the bat there – 344/9 against Pakistan in Hyderabad and 326 against South Africa in Delhi. But they failed to gain any points as their depleted bowling attack suffered at both venues. Thursday’s match at Chinnaswamy will pose a similar test to Sri Lanka’s bowlers, but gives them a chance to correct two previous mistakes. – England vs Sri Lanka Live Score

Left-arm pacer Dilshan Madushanka has been hugely impressive so far and will soon impress against an England side that has had three shaky starts in four outings.


Kusal Mendis(w/c), Pathum Nissanka, Kusal Perera, Sadeera Samarawickrama, Charith Asalanka, Dhananjaya de Silva, Dushan Hemantha, Chamika Karunaratne, Maheesh Theekshana, Kasun Rajitha, Dilshan Madushanka, Angelo Mathews, Dimuth Karunaratne, Dushmantha Chameera, Lahiru Kumara, Dunith Wellalage.

What they said:

“We’re obviously disappointed with the [South Africa] result and not just the result but the way we played, but, in the competition, you’ve got to move on as quick as you can and regroup. Everything is a must-win and we know we’ve been in this position before, probably not to this degree, but we know everything is a must-win and we have to get our confidence and perform well, and bat and bowl and field better than we have done so far in this tournament.”

England vs Sri Lanka Live Score Update

England have won the toss and have opted to bat – England vs Sri Lanka Live Score

We are going to bat first. Looks a good wicket, little bit drier but we will look to put up a good score. We have been short of our best, we have done enough talking and it is about performing. We have stayed very level as a group, there is some frustration around for not playing as well as we could but there is quality in the team indivdually and collectively. Throughout the team. We have three changes – Woakes, Moeen and Livingstone come in.

Jos Buttler
