The third One-day International (ODI) between England and Sri Lanka will be held in Manchester. The series is now level at 1-1 and spinners will come into play after the rain delay in Manchester.


Chris Jordan and Gary Ballance performed well in the first match as England look to build on a new side. The Lankans on the other hand kept losing wickets in a stiff revised target after the rain interruption. Skipper Alastair Cook’s availability is a concern for the England camp as he picked up a groin injury in the first match. Alex Hales has been called in as cover for Cook and Eoin Morgan is likely to lead for England.


The second ODI saw England slump to an embarrassing 157-run loss and the hosts need to show character to come back in the tournament after a major overhaul.
