The series is done and dusted with England gaining an unassailable 3-0 series lead but the hosts can still avoid a clean sweep. We hope that the fifth and final ODI, slotted on Tuesday, October 23, 2018 at 2.30 pm local (0900 GMT), is a properly contested game. Do join us for that.

England's tour of Sri Lanka has been hampered with rains and wet outfield but that has not stopped them from taking an unassailable 2-0 lead in the ODI series. In the last match, which was reduced to 21 overs, the Lankans put up a decent total of 150 runs on the board. But the formidable English batting chased the target easily to go 2-0 up in the series.


Sri Lanka have been going through one of the worst phases of their ODI history and need some luck to salvage some pride in the series. On the other hand, England will look to take a 3-0 lead and add another series win in their bank.
