CHRIS WOAKES has been adjudged as the MAN OF THE MATCH for his 95* and 2/56!
...
At 82/6, nobody would have thought that England would get this close. But Buttler and Woakes had other plans. With the record for highest 8th wicket partnership in England-Sri Lanka contests, and the highest score by a number 8 batsman in ODIs being shattered, an improbable victory looked to be on the cards, but it wasn't to be. Buttler's departure for 93 in the 43rd over after a record 138-run stand for the 8th wicket changed things. However, Woakes carried things to the last ball, and Plunkett smashed the last ball for six to tie the game.
