After England and Sri Lanka  played out one of the closest games in the first ODI, the second ODI at Edgbaston, Birmingham was a stark contrast in comparison as England dominated to take a 1-0 lead after a 10-wicket win. Sri Lanka had won the toss and chosen to bat first and put up a fairly decent total of 254, after half-centuries from Dinesh Chandimal and Upul Tharanga.

However, what ensued was some brilliant batting by the England openers as they took their team across the finishing line, thus setting up a record chase in ODIs. Jason Roy and Alex Hales scored centuries as they powered England to an emphatic win over Sri Lanka.

Here are the major stats from the game:

0 – Kusal Mendis’ dismissal for a duck was the first for a Sri Lankan batsman batting at Number 3 since Kumar Sangakkara's duck against India in November 2014.
