    The one thing that everyone is agreed on, is that this result as blown Group A wide open. This group continues on Sunday when England play New Zealand, 24 hours before Sri Lanka take on Australia. Check out the details of our coverage here.

    Nick: “The only way I’d be slightly critical of England is sometimes they sit back and wait for something to happen. It was a fascinating game of cricket and you can’t be too hard on England.”
  • 21:05

    Back to Beefy: “Sangakkara was magnificent. He’s been an excellent player for a long, long time. It was a very good pitch. I just wonder if there are times when England can accelerate a little bit more when we are batting and can we put a slip in more? I’m not talking about major changes because at the end of the day you have to say well-played Sri Lanka.”

    “@PPlatz_06: @BumbleCricket That result makes the last round of games in this group very,very interetsing!” Very Interesting....

    Cook: “I thought 300 was about par. I couldn’t quite get it away at the start and if you add 20 runs to that it’s an outstanding effort.”
