Eng vs SL 1st ODI 2014: Cricket live streaming info, score and highlights

November 26, 2014, By S Ranjita

It’s no sort of soothing time for the two teams that will clash with each other today at Colombo. The ODI series between Sri Lanka and England will not just be the platform for the World Cup trials, but also for sending a word out to the world.

The match starts at 2.30 pm IST.

Sri Lanka have been thrown into a hectic schedule, which has somehow hit the team with a blow ahead of the World Cup. Their previous results were embarrassing, although the lack of preparations could be cited as a reason.

But when coming back home, they hold an upper hand above their opponents. That involves the mental edge over England from their previous encounter in which Sri Lanka clinched the series 3-2. Follow the Eng vs SL live scores here.

This would probably be the last of the trials before making their flight to the South East Pacific. That’s exactly why they are going beyond limits in search of the ones to fill the dent in the squad.

The changes being made to the squad include some long heard names such as Thilana Kandamby and Jeevan Mendis. But yet they are in shortage in the bowling front as they are still missing their main man Lasith Malinga due to ankle surgery.

England is going through a somewhat similar patch like that of their opponents. They have won only once in their previous five games. Their only series win was against the West Indies back in March, which they won when fielding a T20 squad ahead of the World T20s.

Skipper Alistair Cook is having much more to worry than just about the results. He has been haunted with criticism as ODI skipper from all corners, despite being assured of leading the squad in World Cup.

If things go wrong against him yet again, the England squad would only hit rock bottom in confidence when making their trip to Australasia.

The highlights video will be posted here soon.
