Meanwhile, the England cricket team were also not far behind their exploits on the field when they trumped Sri Lanka by five wickets in the first ODI at Chester-le-Street on Tuesday.
Put in to bat first, Sri Lanka were all bundled out for a paltry 185 as Chris Woakes and David Willey barraged the opponent’s batting line-up.
In response, Joe Root registered a match-winning 79 off 87 balls in his ODI comeback as the Three Lions chased the target with 15.1 overs to spare.
Earlier, England had whitewashed Sri Lanka during the three-match T20I series.
After the Sri Lanka series, Eoin Morgan & Co. would compete with Pakistan in three ODIs and as many T20Is, following which the hosts will play a five-Test match series against India.
