Lasith Malinga picks up the MoTM.
That's all from us. Do tune in to Sportskeeda for tomorrow's double headers and more World Cup news and stories! Until then, good bye. 
There we go. Here's an upset, after quite some time. 
Sri Lanka batted first, and an all-round bowling display from the hosts restricted them to a below par 232/9, with Jofra Archer and Mark Wood picking up three wickets a piece. 
However, England in reply, lost Jonny Bairstow very early on, before James VInce followed. Joe Root (57) held the innings together from one end, but Lasith Malinga masterminded a remarkable defense by picking up 4-43 himself. Wickets kept tumbling at one end, and while Ben Stokes tried to finish the game off for his side, lack of partners on the other end made him quite helpless. 

In the end, the Islanders won by 20 runs, but their death bowling armory defended the target with conviction and application. 
Sri Lanka win! They have pulled off the biggest upset of this World Cup. Yes, an upset was due.
