Howzat! England face off against Sri Lanka at the Bristol Country Ground in the UK on June 26 in what should be a pulsating cricket match-up. It’s a one day series, and this is game 3 of 5, so there’s loads to play for with England only 1-0 up in the series.

England absolutely blitzed the Sri Lankans in game 2. The tourists scored 254 for 7 off their 50 overs, a decent but fairly gettable total for the home team to chase down. And England didn’t waste any time in hunting for that score, winning by 10 wickets with 16 overs to spare. It was a thrashing!
The heroes that day were Alex Hales and Jason Roy, with Alex hitting six sixes in only his third ever one day international and scoring 133 runs on his own! Jason didn’t too badly either, striking four sixes in an unbeaten 112 knock. England will want more of the same again.
The only thing that could upset the Sri Lankans could be the unpredictable British weather. If rain is forecast, like a typical a British summer, the game could end up being tied. They don’t replay cricket games, they just move onto the next one.
The incentive for England would be to win game 3, so that they can’t lose the series and only tie it if they were to lose the final two one day internationals.
