SL vs Eng 7th ODI Colombo: Cricket live score, streaming info and highlights

December 16, 2014, By M Sohini

Sri Lanka won the toss and elected to bat first in the 7th and final ODI against England being played in Colombo on Tuesday, Dec 16, 2014.


England team: AN Cook, MM Ali, AD Hales, JE Root, JWA Taylor, EJG Morgan, JC Buttler†, CR Woakes, CJ Jordan, JC Tredwell and HF Gurney.

Sri Lanka: S Prasanna, AD Mathews, LD Chandimal, NLTC Perera, BMAJ Mendis, HDRL Thirimanne, RAS Lakmal, MDK Perera, DPMD Jayawardene, TM Dilshan and KC Sangakkara.

When last reports came in, the Sri Lanka score was 88/1 in 15 overs. See the live scores here.

The results have already been written for the series. With Sri Lanka leading the series 4-2, all eyes would be to bid a rightful farewell to Mahela Jayawardene and Kumar Sangakkara at home.

Sri Lankan aces Mahela Jayawardene and Kumar Sangakkara will be padding up for their last match on Sri Lankan soil as both are thinking of calling an end to their cricketing career after the World Cup.

While Jayawardene’s retirement plans look confirmed, Sangakkara is yet to make a call, but is expected to move ahead with the plan on Australian soil.

Sri Lanka has clinched the series with a win in the previous game with a smashing knock from Sangakkara guiding them. They would only be eyeing to broaden the gap, before departing to New Zealand for the mammoth event later on.

A win would also make their ODI calendar look good, which would certainly help in wiping out the shoddy memories from their quick shuffled Indian tour.

The final ODI on the other side would only be insignificant for the English squad, who will be bringing the curtains down to a rather disappointing year.

Successive failures have brought heaps of criticism to the English squad and a win would only lighten up hopes and promises for their upcoming outing in Australia next month.

Harry Gurney, Ben Stokes and Alex Hales are some of the names that are still to don the England jersey this series. But with nothing to give away, Alistair Cook may certainly be bringing them in for the last encounter at Colombo.

A win would ensure they lag the opponents only by a one-game margin, which is now the only remaining plus they can brag of in the series.
