England beats Sri Lanka with a hundred from Buttler
The highest-rated cricket team in the recent T20 World Cup, England, gained their fourth victory in four matches. This time they beat a promising Sri Lanka roster, which made the life of Britishers the hardest in the UAE.
This time England lost the toss and had to start batting first. It created problems for the Britishers until Buttler took the bat. He hit outstanding 101* runs, demolishing the opponents who didn’t know how to cope with a super-concentrated athlete. Such an astonishing performance brought England to 163 runs, which was still a beatable result.

However, Sri Lanka wasn’t able to reach its target. A few wickets made it impossible to overcome the result of Buttler and his partners, giving England a pretty tight victory. The unbeaten run continues for Britishers, but the further opponents will know that this team isn’t sinless. However, that is the matter for discussion in the semifinal, where England has almost arrived.
Losing the third game out of 4, Sri Lanka still has chances to get into the play-off. They have to beat West Indies with an improved net run rate, while Australia and South Africa have to lose their games. Want to know more about cricket and don’t miss the important news?
