England won the toss and chose to field vs Sri Lanka
England have won the toss and opted to bowl first in the opening fixture of their three-match ODI series against Sri Lanka in Durham.
Following their surprise defeat in the T20Is – it was England’s first bilateral series loss in the format to a side other than Australia since 2010 – Heather Knight, the home captain, urged her side against “going in our shells”. “Being really positive,” she added of how her team would approach this match, having struggled in particular against Sri Lanka’s spinners during the two matches they lost. “We’ve been off the pace a bit, to be honest.”
Sri Lanka made two changes to the side which won the final T20I with Achini Kulasuriya and Oshadi Ranasinghe replacing Sugandika Kumari and Inoshi Priyadharshani.
