England vs Sri Lanka 3rd ODI (Preview)
For a long time the England side were guilty of not taking the attack to the opposition, especially in the limited overs format. They used to approach the ODIs with a test match mindset, which used to lead to their downfall. But this new crop of English players have found a way to distinguish between 5 day and one-day cricket. While the basic technical skills remain the same, there is a huge difference with respect to the way you approach both these formats, and having different sets of players for both formats has resulted in great results for English cricket.
Alex Hales and Jason Roy, two players who have had a huge role to play in this transformation, stood up and demolished the Sri Lankan attack in the 2nd ODI to gift the English side a comprehensive victory.
The Sri Lankan batting unit looked a bit weary and had to pay the price for that.
