The third and final ODI in Bristol will bring an end to Sri Lanka’s tour of England. The tour has been a forgetful one so far for the island nation. They have failed to win even a single game so far and their performances have not improved at all. There have been individual performances but they have failed to click together as a team.
The sides have played 77 games between them so far with England winning 38 games and Sri Lanka 36. England’s latest win was in the second ODI by 8 wickets. Meanwhile, the ODI series is a part of the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Super League which acts as a qualification scenario for the 2023 World Cup. England are topping the table at the moment while the Lankans are placed last.
