Highlights: Captain Morgan fails under pressure

Sri Lanka created history in their World Cup clash against the hosts England. The target of 233 was not out of England’s reach but Sri Lanka made an amazing comeback with the bowl in the 2nd innings.

Lasith Malinga was the architect of victory for Sri Lanka once again as he clinched early wickets to put the English side under pressure.

English captain was the centurion in their last match against Afghanistan and all the English fans were looking up to him to save his side from an unlikely defeat against Sri Lanka.

Eoin Morgan got his start in the innings as he played some risk-free cricket and took his innings further. After a couple of quiet overs, Eoin played a straight delivery back into the hands of Isuru Udana who took a great reflex catch.

The pressure was mounting up and England needed boundaries. After the wicket of Morgan, England was perhaps 70% out of the game. Later Sri Lanka won the match by 20 runs.
