The third and final ODI in Bristol will put an end to Sri Lanka’s tour of England. The tour has so far been forgotten for the island nation. They have not been able to win a single game so far and their performances have not improved at all. There were individual performances, but they did not manage to click together as a team.
The parties have played 77 matches between them so far, with England winning 38 matches and Sri Lanka 36. England’s latest victory was in the second one-day match by 8 wickets. Meanwhile, the ODI series is part of the ICC Men’s World Cup Super League which serves as a qualifying scenario for the 2023 World Cup. England are currently at the top of the table while the Lankans are placed last.
