35

JASON ROY led an irresistible charge at The Oval by posting the second highest score by an England player to secure victory in the five-match Royal London ODI Series with one game to left.

England Opner Jason Roy continue his last match inning and scored 162 in just 118 balls, in last match also roy scored a century and because of this England easily chased down target of 308 by six wickets (D/L) in a rain affected match.

Due to this, Sri Lanka remain without a win against England on a tour.

Roy fell five runs short of England’s highest one-day score, Robin Smith’s 167 against Australia in 1993, but the hosts eased to a revised target of 309 with 11 balls to spare to seal the five-match series with a 2-0 lead.

Sri Lanka scored 305 for five from 42 overs after being put in to bat thanks to half centuries by Dhanushka Gunathilaka, Kusal Mendis, who top-scored with 77, Dinesh Chandimal and Angelo Mathews.

Their innings was interrupted by rain, however, and England faced a target of 309.

And this was first time that Any team scored 300+ run this tournament and England easily chased down the target and win the series.

 

Last match left of the ODI series and after that T20 match also so there is also a hope for Sri Lanka to register first win of the tour.
It was very disappointing tour for Sri Lanka startting from Test Matches, Their batsmen not able to bat first and once thier batsmen start kicking then their bowler not able to defend the score or able took 10 wickets.
