There’s one more match at Dambulla and so far that appears to be the best route to victory.
In the first match, Sri Lanka batted sensibly and then England were skittled. In the second match, England batted haphazardly at first, then pragmatically later, once Owais Shah got to the crease and Sri Lanka were skittled.
Is it batting under lights? Is it a coincidence? The third match will tell all. Downwards of ten people will be on the edges of their respective seats waiting to find out.
As you might be able to tell, we’re not massively interested in this match. We followed it quite closely yesterday, but Inzy’s announced his retirement today and that’s taken precedence.
