26.1 W

OUT! LBW! The decision stands as it is! For the first time, we see an umpire rush for shelter as he runs with his left hand in the air, signalling the decision as out. Never looked in doubt, to be honest. Landed outside off, Plunkett looks to play that from the crease but is pretty late. Misses the ball, as it hits his pad. He is adjudged LBW but he reviews it. Replays show that the ball hit the back pad, then the glove and went behind. 9 down, are England as we are almost done with this match but it is pelting down, so the game is halted.

End of Over : 26 1 Runs ENG: 132/8
25.6 0

A short ball outside off, Tom fends it to the off side.

25.5 0

JUST IN! Full on middle, Tom pushes it towards mid on and initially calls for the single but then sends Plunkett back. Liam just about plonks his bat in when Thisara Perera fires in a throw at the bowler's end. It is referred upstairs and replays confirm that the non-striker is safe.

25.4 0

A bouncer on middle, Tom ducks.

25.3 0

The batsman has played it to the point region.

25.2 0

Outside off, a play and a miss.

25.1 1

Down the leg side, flicked through the leg side for a single.

End of Over : 25 3 Runs ENG: 131/8
24.6 1

Full and outside off, driven down the ground for a run. 3 runs and a wicket from the over, Akila's figures read 6-0-19-3.

24.5 1

Defended off the back foot by the batsman. They pick up a single.

24.4 0

Full and around off, pushed back to the bowler.

24.3 0

Pitched on off, spinning in, Curran looks to flick but misses and is hit on the pads.

24.2 W

OUT! BOWLED! Right through! Akila has his third. Full and just outside off, Rashid looks to defend with a big lunge, but the ball spins in, goes between bat and pad and hits the stumps! The keeper is celebrating more than the bowler who believes that it is routine stuff. England going down quickly...

24.1 1

Tossed up on middle, pushed towards long on for a single.


England clinched the series against Sri Lanka by defeating them in the fourth ODI by 18 runs by DLS method after rain again played spoilsport. They took a 3-0 lead going into the final match of the series.


Captain Eoin Morgan has suggested that he will look to make some changes in the side which will give an opportunity to the players who have not taken part so far in the series.


As far as Sri Lanka are concerned, it has been turbulent times for them with yet another series loss. Dinesh Chandimal's men will look to salvage some pride in the last match of the series before clashing with the English team in Tests.


Sri Lanka vs England will be played on October 22 at R.Premadasa Stadium, Colombo. The match will start at 2:30 PM IST.
