In the fifth One-Day International (ODI) between England and Sri Lanka, Alistair Cook has won the toss and elected to bat in the the series decider. Both teams have gone in with an unchanged line-up and this is the first time in the series a captain has elected to bat after winning the toss. Sachitra Senanayake retains his place in the line-up despite being called for bowling with a suspect action in the previous game.

 

The 4th One-Day International (ODI) at Lords gave birth to England’s future star, Jos Buttler. This is not to say that Buttler has not had good knocks in the past. Scoring the fastest ODI hundred by an Englishman at the home of cricket has made pundits and critics stand up and take notice of the 23-year old wicket-keeper batsman.
