Sri Lanka vs England World Cup 2023 Highlights: In match number 25 of the World Cup 2023, Sri Lanka defeated the World Champions by 8 wickets to keep their World Cup hopes alive. The Sri Lanka vs England World Cup match happened at the stadium known as “Batters Paradise, “M. Chinnaswamy Stadium,” but this time the audience didn’t see the cricket ball flying in the air that much like they used to as Sri Lankan bowlers displayed a dominant performance to outclass the defending champions. This was England’s third consecutive loss in the tournament and fourth overall. With this loss, England’s chances of an early exit from the trophy race are high.

Sri Lanka vs England World Cup 2023 Highlights
England’s skipper, Jos Buttler, after winning the toss, chose to bat first, and their decision to bat first was proving good as openers Jonny Bairstow and Dawid Malan were scoring boundaries and the scoreboard was flying high, but that came to an end when Dawid Malan got out, and after the fall of the first wicket, England lacked the spirit to overcome Sri Lanka’s bowling attack and kept on losing wickets. Ben Stokes tried scoring runs from one end, but he could only take his score to 43 runs as England got all out after scoring just 156 runs.
Sri Lanka’s start while chasing the target of 157 wasn’t ideal, as Sri Lanka lost two wickets in quick succession, but Pathum Nissanka and Sadeera Samarawickrama stopped England’s bowlers from taking more wickets. Both batters scored their fifties and remained not out, finishing the match in just 25.4 overs. Sri Lanka defeated England by eight wickets.
