Cricket World – The first innings scorecard of both Sri Lanka and England  looks almost identical to each other.

Summary

  • The first innings scorecard of both Sri Lanka and England  looks almost identical to each other.
  • However, Dhananjaya de Silva’s 59, which was quite similar to the innings from Jos Buttler, kept Sri Lanka in the hunt.
  • What further went in Sri Lanka’s favour is that their lower order contributed a little more than the English lower order.
  • The 56-run partnership between de Silva and Akila Dhananjaya in particular helped Sri Lanka to take a 46-run first innings lead.
  • Team Scores Batting at the end of Day 3 – England 170+ all out, Sri Lanka 100+ for four,*NB these predictions may be changed nearer the start of the match once the final starting teams have been announced and we will be running ‘In–Play’ features soon, so stay tuned.
