Seekkuge Prasanna came in and hit 59 runs off just 28 deliveries just after Chandimal’s dismissal and changed the momentum of the tie. Some good hitting at the death from Dasun Shanaka and Fervez Maharoof helped Sri Lanka post a challenging total for the hosts.
Chris Woakes, David Willey and Liam Plunkett claimed two wickets each while Moeen Ali got a scalp to show for his efforts. However, Adil Rashid was the pick of the bowlers, conceding just 36 runs in his 10-over spell. cricket Bet tips

Buttler shared a game changing 138-run partnership for the seventh wicket with Woakes, who also scored an unbeaten 95 runs off 92 balls as they set about to rescue England from the jaws of defeat. In the end, the feat was achieved thanks to some good hitting from Woakes and Liam Plunkett with the duo managing to tie the scores in the final delivery of the match.Live Cricket bet tips
Mathews was expected to play a key role for Sri Lanka prior to the series and it is no surprise that he played a crucial part on Tuesday. The skipper will be gutted that his side could not finish the job and he will look to try his luck again on Friday. Mathews will be the key man for the visitors yet again. Online cricket bet tips
England would have been surprised by the failure of their batting order yet again. Had it not been for the rescue act from Buttler and Woakes, they would not have made the Great Escape the other day. While the team will draw confidence from the fact that Morgan and Buttler are in good nick with the bat, there will be pressure on Jason Roy, Alex Hales, and Joe Root to perform.Cricket Bet tips
