England came up to bat first and set a target of 157 runs. They had a bit of a rough start as their opening players, Bairstow & Malan, got out in the early stage.  But that didn’t give up there. Ben Stokes played a brave innings, scoring 43 runs, and Jonny Bairstow contributed with 30.

England’s innings ended up eventually all out for 156 runs.

Then Sri Lanka came up for the second inning. They had come up to chase the target, and their batsmen took it head-on! Pathum Nissanka was simply brilliant. He played an amazing innings, scoring 77 runs with some fantastic shots to the boundaries. Kusal Perera and Sadeera Samarawickrama also played their hearts out. Kusal Perera held the team together to chase, and Sadeera brought the excitement with a quick 65 runs. It was an extraordinary team effort!

The Victory: Sri Lanka achieved the target with eight wickets in hand, showing their dominance in the game and who is the boss was in the game. It was an unforgettable victory, and we celebrated with all our hearts.
