The first one day between the two nations had plenty of drama, excitement and nerve-wracking finish. The match was eventually tied after Sri Lanka were in the comfortable position to win.They scored 286-9, Angelo Matthews anchored the ship while the pitch hitters did their job to perfection especially by Prasanna. England had a woeful start but steady display in middle overs by Jos Buttler and Man of the Match performance from
Chris Woakes made them pull a rabbit out of the hat and tie the match. Credit should
also be given to Liam Plunkett who smashed six of the last ball to make the scores level !!!
