Hosts England take on visitors Sri Lanka in the fourth of the five-match One-Day International (ODI) series at The Oval in London on Wednesday. The third ODI between the two sides was abandoned due to persistant rain, as England continue to lead the series 1-0, following a convincing 10-wicket win in the second ODI, while the first ODI ended up being a thrilling tie, as the match itself was a tie. A win here for the English would lead in a series win, while the Lankans would definitely aim for a win here in order to square the series and stay alive. Overall, an interesting tie on the cards.

England have came back fighting ever since they lost half their side in the run-chase during the first ODI at Trent Bridge. The second ODI was a near-perfect display. A fine bowling display was well complemented by the brilliance in the batting of Alex Hales and Jason Roy. The duo not only scored centuries, they put on a show of majestic batting and finished things in style with almost 16 overs to spare.

The Sri Lankans just could not make use of the fantastic batting pitch that was on offer at Nottingham. They have had issues with their batting which continued in the next match at Bristol as well. Dinesh Chandimal and Angelo Mathews have played with responsibility, but the team has struggled to put on a big target.

The England bowlers have been remarkable as well. Liam Plunkett and Chris Woakes have taken wickets and contributed in almost all the matches. The Lankan bowlers could not produce wickets for them in the second ODI but who knows what might have happened if play would have continued at Bristol.
