Cricket World Cup: Sri Lanka defeat England by nine wickets
March 2 , 2015
England suffered their third humiliating defeat in four games as Sri Lanka beat them by nine wickets after comfortably chasing a target of 310 in a World Cup match in Wellington.
Centuries by Lahiru Thirimanne and Kumar Sangakkara helped Sri Lanka win with 16 balls remaining.
Joe Root’s 121 had earlier helped England to post a respectable 309-6.
After this loss, England’s place in the quarter-finals is by no means secure.
