Malinga’s wicket-ball to Roy was roughly the same length as the previous ball, but his pace dropped from 135kph to 131kph. Roy was through his shot early and that drew the false shot. #SLvEng pic.twitter.com/5Di349scIf

MALINGS STRIKES: A hint of swing, the ball holds up in the crease and Roy ends up getting a leading edge to Dananjaya at midwicket. Roy looks at the pitch, but has to make his way back for a duck. Went into the shot too quickly. Wicket-maiden for Malinga.
England openers – Jason Roy and Jonny Bairstow – are in the middle. Malinga to start.
England (Playing XI): Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow, Joe Root, Eoin Morgan(c), Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler(w), Moeen Ali, Chris Woakes, Liam Dawson, Adil Rashid, Olly Stone
Sri Lanka (Playing XI): Upul Tharanga, Niroshan Dickwella(w), Kusal Perera, Dinesh Chandimal(c), Dhananjaya de Silva, Dasun Shanaka, Thisara Perera, Akila Dananjaya, Lakshan Sandakan, Lasith Malinga, Nuwan Pradeep
Anyway, it seems sunny in Dambulla today. Sri Lanka have won the toss and have opted to field. Both sides unchanged.
Good morning and welcome to the second ODI from Dambulla between England and Sri Lanka. After the first game washout, both teams would hope to get a full day today in what is a day game. It was frustrating for both sides, more so England, who were building towards a strong total on Wednesday.
