Recent Match Report – Sri Lanka vs England 2nd ODI 2021


Dhananjaya de Silva’s 91 drags Sri Lanka to a respectable total after top-order collapse

Innings break – Sri Lanka 241 for 9 (Dhananjaya 91, Shanaka 47, S Curran 5-48, Willey 4-64) vs England

Sam Curran‘s maiden international five-wicket haul means England will chase 242 for victory and an unassailable 2-0 ODI series lead at The Kia Oval, despite Dhananjaya de Silva putting up a fight for Sri Lanka.

Sri Lanka simply had no answer for the swinging ball early on, with Curran the chief purveyor at his home ground. At one point, he had taken three wickets for three runs in 1.3 overs.

Curran ended with 5 for 48 from his 10 overs, while fellow left-armer David Willey took 4 for 64 from his 10 as Sri Lanka managed to bat out their full 50 overs, reaching 241 for 9.
Dhananjaya restored some order after a chaotic start with a run-a-ball 91, sharing decent partnerships with Wanindu Hasaranga and Dasun Shanaka to steady the innings, with Shanaka falling three runs short of a half-century.
