In practice match number eight, England will lock horns against Sri Lanka at Karen Rolton Oval, Adelaide on February 18. The two teams had mixed fortunes in the first of their practice games. While England won against New Zealand quite comfortably by six wickets, Sri Lanka ended up on the losing side as they fell short of 46 runs against South Africa.
England will be pleased with its all-round performance and will look to make it two in two against the Lankans. On the other hand, Chamari Athapaththu and co. will eye redemption and strive to put up a better show. The team will be relieved that their seamer Achini Kulasuriya, who was hit on the head while fielding in the deep is out of danger. Will Sri Lanka bounce back and get the better of England? Let’s find out.
