England host Sri Lanka in the third One-Day International (ODI) at Manchester on May 28, 2014. England won the first ODI and Sri Lanka came back to win the second ODI at Chester-le-Street. Alastair Cook will probably be taking part in the third ODI, after missing the second ODI due to groininjury.

 

That previous match saw Cook replaced by fellow left-hander Michael Carberry although England had called up Twenty20 specialist Alex Hales as cover for their skipper, with the team led by former Ireland batsman Eoin Morgan. England seamer James Anderson, set to appear on his Lancashire home ground on Wednesday, was optimistic about Cook’s prospects.

 

“We’ll see how he is in the morning,” Anderson told an Old Trafford news conference on Tuesday. “He’s practised today, so fingers crossed he will be okay.”

 

England won a rain-affected first ODI at The Oval in south London only to suffer a colossal collapse at the weekend.

 

“It was an extremely poor performance … and what we’ve done today, and yesterday, isfocus on how we’re going to put it right on Wednesday,” said Anderson.

 

“It was just one of those days where everything that could go wrong did. Certainly with the bat, we under-performed.”
