Looking for England vs Sri Lanka where to watch details?
The 25th match of the Cricket World Cup is scheduled to be played between two struggling teams of the tournament, England and Sri Lanka. The clash is set to take place at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru on October 26 (Thursday).
The venue hosted a high-scoring clash between Pakistan and Australia last week and something of similar sort is expected in this game.
The defending champions are rocked at the moment with three losses in four matches and are rooted to the ninth position in the points table. They have so far lost to New Zealand, Afghanistan and South Africa and won only against Bangladesh.
Perhaps, the team looked completely deflated against the Proteas in Mumbai as they succumbed to their heaviest defeat in ODI history.
On the other hand, Sri Lanka have a similar story in this World Cup. But the only good thing for them is they are coming into this clash on the back of a hard-fought win over the Netherlands. They chased down 263 runs in Lucknow on a tough pitch to register their first win after losing three on the bounce to South Africa, Pakistan and Australia respectively.
This game will more or less end the campaign for one of the teams as they are in a must-win situation. England will fancy their chances given the odds but nothing can be taken for granted with the way this World Cup has panned out so far.
