England To Secure Series Win Over Sri Lanka

England eased their way to victory in the third one-day international against Sri Lanka and can now secure the series with a win in Kandy on Saturday. Rain reduced the match to a 21-over contest, with the visitors winning the toss and electing to field first. Niroshan Dickwella took the attack to the England bowlers, allowing Sri Lanka to bring up their fifty in the fifth over. However, Tom Curran managed to halt the home team’s progress, removing Dickwella before he could inflict further damage. Adil Rashid then took control of the innings, claiming four wickets, while Curran notched a further two to limit Dinesh Chandimal’s men to 150 from their 21 overs. The Three Lions lost Jonny Bairstow...

Expect Another England Triumph Over Sri Lanka

England claimed victory over Sri Lanka via the Duckworth/Lewis method in the second one-day international of their series at Dambulla. For the second match on the bounce, the Three Lions were inserted by the home side. Jason Roy lost his wicket in the first over, while Jonny Bairstow had issues finding his rhythm at the crease before falling for 26. Joe Root and Eoin Morgan excelled at the crease, with both players notching half-centuries to build the foundation for the England innings. The duo both passed fifty, although neither were able to push on to three figures with the Three Lions captain falling eight runs short of a ton. England’s innings did peter out as they tail collapsed amid a...

England To Get On The Board After Washout

The weather prevented a result in the opening one-day international of the series between Sri Lanka and England in their clash at Dambulla. There was time for the Three Lions to take to the crease and they managed to put 92 runs in 15 overs before the rain came, losing two wickets in the process. Jonny Bairstow was the first to fall for 25, edging a delivery from Nuwan Pradeep behind for Niroshan Dickwella. Jason Roy fell victim to the mystery spin of Akila Dananjaya, but Joe Root and Eoin Morgan were looking composed at the crease before conditions ended the contest. The tourists would have been grateful for a look at Dananjaya in a competitive environment without the pressure of a result. England’s...

England To Kick Off Sri Lanka Series With Victory

England begin their five-match one-day international series against Sri Lanka on Wednesday. The Three Lions return to the 50-over arena for the first time since defeating India 2-1 over the summer, entrenching themselves as the leading outfit in the world in the format. Eoin Morgan’s men have won their last eight series of over three matches on the bounce. The only recent blemish on their record was their stunning defeat to Scotland in Edinburgh. England put on a clinic to see off India in their clash over the summer, with Joe Root driving his team to victory with back-to-back hundreds. They will be aiming to continue their momentum ahead of the World Cup against a Sri Lanka side that have...

Will Europe Defend The Ryder Cup At Whistling Straits?

Europe produced an outstanding performance at Le Grand National to hammer the United States in the 42nd Ryder Cup. Thomas Bjorn’s men were flawless for two-and-a-half days after falling behind in the first session of the tournament. However, a fightback on Friday afternoon allowed them to take command and they never looked back, clinching a seven-point victory over Team USA. Jim Furyk’s men extended their run without a victory overseas. When they next return to European shores they will be without a win in 29 years. The American skipper endured a torrid time over the three days as seemingly all off his picks backfired, with Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson failed to claim a point between them....

Who Will Win The Ryder Cup?

The 42nd edition of the Ryder Cup begins on Friday as Europe seek to regain control of the cup from the United States following their defeat in Hazeltine in 2016. The United States ended a run of three-straight tournaments without a victory by defeating Darren Clarke’s men in Minnesota. It was their first triumph since 2008 and they now face the challenge of successfully defending their crown overseas. Team USA have not won in Europe for 25 years, stretching all the way back to the 1993 edition of the competition. On that occasion Tom Watson’s men managed to edge their way to victory at the Belfry and will be looking for a similar performance at Le Golf National with Jim Furyk hoping to leave...
