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:
England skipper Eoin Morgan tops the list of players with most sixes in the ongoing 2019 edition of the ICC World Cup. Morgan scripted a world record of most sixes by a batsman in an ODI inning when he smashed 17 maximums in England's last clash against Afghanistan. He leads the list with a total of 22 sixes from five innings he has played so far, with Aaron Finch (14 sixes) standing at the second place on this list.
Bangladesh all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan has the most number of fours to his name in the ongoing cricket's showpiece event. He is standing with a total of 47 boundaries from five matches he has played so far.
Shakib is being closely followed by Australian opener David Warner, who is placed at the second spot in the list with 35 boundaries from six matches.
