I made some partnerships and we managed to get a good total. We were very good in fielding too. I Wasn’t thinking too much about the century on the last ball. I was just waiting that whatever ball comes, I will play accordingly.

England captain Eoin Morgan said, “I am proud of the way our team performed. The conditions were very difficult. Mills was off the field. Despite this, we won the match.

Dasoon Shanaka, captain of the losing team Sri Lanka, said, “We bowled very well in the beginning. Our bowlers don’t have much experience. For many players, this is the first World Cup but as we progress in this tournament Our bowlers are learning a lot. We knew dew was going to come in the game and that would benefit us but we couldn’t do that.”
