Eng vs SL, 2nd ODI, Leeds - Cricket Live score,Streaming
Sri Lanka have made one enforced change to their line-up, with Dinesh Chandimal slotting into the middle order as a replacement for Sanath Jayasuriya, who retired from international cricket at The Oval. Mahela Jayawardene moves up to open alongside the captain Tillakaratne Dilshan.
Despite the size of their defeat in the first match, Sri Lanka have plenty reason to expect a swift return to form, not least because the weather is rather more pleasant than the cold and clammy conditions they faced in the opening match. "When the sun comes out, the change in the mood and the smile on the faces is good to see," said Stuart Law, their outgoing coach. "If it's a nice and sunny day, I am sure the boys will enjoy the cricket."Watch Live Score
Besides, Sri Lanka certainly know how to impose themselves at Headingley. In 2006, a devastating opening stand of 286 between Jayasuriya and Upul Tharanga allowed Sri Lanka to chase down a hefty target of 322 with eight wickets standing and an incredible 12.3 overs left unused.
Jayawardene and Kumar Sangakkara were together at the crease when victory was sealed in that match, while England have three survivors from that game - Cook, Ian Bell and the Yorkshireman Tim Bresnan, who had made his debut in the first game of the 5-0 whitewash. "Thanks for reminding me about that," he said dryly on the eve of this match.
