The first ODI witnessed one of the most exciting contests in recent times. Batting first, Sri Lanka scored 286 for 9 in their allotted 50 overs. Angelo Mathews and Seekkuge Prasanna struck half-centuries, and when the Sri Lankan innings got over, the target did not look like a daunting one for England.

But England got a horrendous start, as they slumped to 82 for 6 in their chase of 287 to win. It was at this point that Jos Buttler and Chris Woakes got together, as they respectively scored 93 and 95 not out to help England get closer to the target.

Buttler fell when England needed a few more runs to win, and things got very interesting when 14 were needed off the last over. Sri Lanka were still in the game, at least before the last ball was bowled. Nuwan Pradeep pitched it up, Plunkett swung at it hard and cleared the ropes, ensuring that England walk away with a drawn game.
