World Cup 2019: Players with most sixes, fours, best batting average after England vs Sri Lanka match

The 27th match of the 2019 International Cricket Council (ICC) saw Sri Lanka snatch an unexpected 20-run victory over hot-favourites England at Headingley Carnegie in Leeds on Friday. 

Opting to bat first, experienced batsman Angelo Mathews struck an 85-run knock off 115 balls while Avishka Fernando (49) and Kusal Mendis (46) also made decent contributions with the bat before the England bowlers restricted Sri Lanka to a lowly score of 232 for nine, something which was looking too easy for England to chase. 

Mark Wood and Jofra Archer took three wickets each while Adil Rashid (two for 45) and Chris Woakes (one for 22) also chipped in. 

In reply,  Lasith Malinga (four for 43), David de Silva (three for 32) and Isuru Udana (two for 41) all shone with the ball to eventually bundle England out for 212 in 47 overs. 

While Ben Stokes was the highest scorer for the hosts with his unbeaten knock of 82, Joe Root once again pulled back his third successive half-century by scoring an 89-ball 57 runs .

Let us take a look at the list of players with most sixes, fours, best batting average and best bowling figures after Sri Lanka vs England clash:
