Sri Lanka will take on England in the second One-Day International (ODI) of the ongoing seven-match series on Saturday. Sri Lanka, still healing from the wounds they suffered against India, are surely filled with anger and frustration out of the heavy defeat, and must be hungry to neutralise their humiliation with some solid performance at home. Sadly, it’s going to be England who would have to face the angry-hungry devils, especially in their own backyard where they are most vulnerable.

England themselves did not have a good year as they lost 12 of the 17 ODIs they have played this year so far. They eventually lost the opening game against Sri Lanka in the ongoing tour by just 25 runs. Despite being a close call, nevertheless a loss would surely mean a setback for them in the build-up to the World Cup, which is scheduled to get underway early next year in Australia and New Zealand.
