Chris Woakes stars as Sri Lanka breakdown after Kusal Perera-Wanindu Hasaranga stand

Either side of a 99-run organization between Kusal Perera and Wanindu Hasaranga, every one of whom hit the fifties, a significantly exhausted Sri Lanka XI unwound pretty much how they were required to. They lost their initial three wickets for 46 runs, and their last seven for 40. 

Britain was to a great extent focused with the ball, Chris Woakes and David Willey separating early development to eliminate the unpracticed men in Sri Lanka's top request, some of whom were batting out of position. Afterward, when the one fair association was broken, the hosts were messy in the field, yet it scarcely made a difference - they were being flung risks each over by an overawed resistance running in a hyper style, playing low-rate shots. Sri Lanka was all out in the 43rd over.

With Sri Lanka positioned 10th on the ODI rankings, this was at that point resembling confusion before they lost six of their players. Air pocket popping triplet Danushka Gunathilaka, Niroshan Dickwella, and Kusal Mendis were at that point in Sri Lanka before this match started, having been flown back in economy class for their transgressions. Avishka Fernando and Dhananjaya de Silva, in the meantime, were out through injury, and Oshada Fernando was inaccessible because of disease. 

This left Sri Lanka with a minimal decision yet to handle a large number of unpracticed players. Three - allrounders Charith Asalanka and Dhananjaya Lakshan, in addition to left-arm spinner Praveen Jayawickrama - were on ODI debut. Three others - Binura Fernando, Ramesh Mendis, and Chamika Karunaratne - had played just a single ODI. On top of which Pathum Nissanka was playing his seventh match. Truth be told, across the XI, Sri Lanka just has 195 covers - 105 of them having a place with skipper Perera. Eoin Morgan was playing his 244th game. 

Woakes' new-ball bowling would have disturbed even much better resistance, be that as it may. He once in a while wandered from the channel, discovering development both noticeable all around and off the surface, and scratched off Nissanka in the fifth over. Four overs later he bowled the conveyance of the innings when he calculated a ball in from over the wicket, then, at that point moved it away off the crease to take the edge of Dasun Shanaka. At the opposite end, Willey had debutant Asalanka gotten at slip for a duck.
