England take on Sri Lanka in the fourth One Day International (ODI) in Edgbaston, Birmingham. With their victory in the previous game, Sri Lanka have tied with England 2-2 in the series. Today’s match will decide the victor of what has been a very closely fought series.

 

Sri Lanka had a disappointing match last time in Old Trafford, but they more than made up for it at Lord’s. They will be looking to win the series. Catch the Live Scorecard of the match here

 

Alastair Cook and Chris Jordan have been consistent for England, though it was Jos Buttler who nearly won them the game in the previous match with the fastest ever century by an Englishman. His hard hitting techniques in the end of the innings took England to the brink but they couldn’t go the final distance.

 

Sri Lanka got back to their winning ways at Lord’s, and will be looking to carry on that form today. They won the second match in the series but couldn’t manage to win the third match and continue their momentum. Paul Farbrace, under whom Sri Lanka had managed to win their first ICC event in 18 years, is now the assistant coach of England. How they respond to that ought to be interesting.
