What a game we had tonight! This World Cup has been quite mundane so far but not today. Sri Lank's surprise win over England has thrown this World Cup wide open. England were expected to earn an easy win tonight but Sri Lanka kept fighting. First Angelo Mathews with the bat and then the bowlers, Lasith Malinga was the pick of them but he was supported greatly by Nuwan Pradeep and Dhananjaya de Silva. We hope for more such games.

That's it for tonight! We will see you tomorrow. Remember, India plays Afghanistan tomorrow.

Dimuth Karunaratne, Sri Lanka captain: Our batsmen and bowlers did a great job. The pitch was getting slower and slower and we couldn't get to 300 so wanted 250-275. Angelo batted very well and with some score on the board the bowlers knew what to do. It's a team effort, when Malinga got a couple of wickets we needed to keep him for the last overs, and Dhanajaya did a really good job.

22:54 (IST)

Eoin Morgan, England captain: We were good with the ball. But we lacked substantial partnerships (while chasing). It was not enough from us. It is more frustrating. Learning as much as we can. Both sides faced challenges with the bat. We have to come back quite aggressively. No, this is not a blow to semi-final chances. Australia is tough. We don't know yet about Roy's participation for that game.

The last time before today England failed to chase down a target of less than 250 runs in a home 50-overs ODI was in 2010 against Pakistan at The Oval while chasing a target of 242 runs.

This is unbelievable stuff from Sri Lanka. They have beaten tournament favourites. Lasith Malinga what a performance this has been. There’s no better player in world cricket than him when it comes to defending low scores. Eoin Morgan the England captain was amused at the squad selection of Sri Lanka at the start of the tournament. Well, they have England him off guard. Such talk before a big tournament can come back to haunt you. Today is has really hurt England. They have got to play three big games now – Australia, New Zealand and India. No room for error whatsoever. Well played Angelo Mathews. He loves this ground Headingley. I presume his next child will be named Headingley.

Lasith Malinga, MoM: We know how dangerous Stokes is. We know how hard he can hit, but we stick to our basics. And ended up winning. We stick to our plan, line and length, variation of slower ball. 

22:45 (IST)

Lasith Malinga is the Man of the Match for his spell of 4/43 in 10 overs

22:44 (IST)

This is England's first defeat at Leeds after winning six consecutive ODIs at the venue.

Ben Stokes is the first England player with two eighty-plus scores batting at No.5 or lower in ICC ODI WCs. Overall, he is the seventh player to achieve the feat.

England vs Sri Lanka LIVE SCORE, ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 Match Updates: Out! And Sri Lanka beat England by 20 runs. A massive upset. Wood nicks one to the keeper off Pradeep and England have folded here. 212 all-out.

England will look to maintain their winning momentum and significantly increase their chances of making it to the semi-finals by beating struggling Sri Lanka at the Headingley on Friday.

With four wins and one defeat, England are second in the points table behind New Zealand. One more win on Friday will take their points tally to 10. Meanwhile, Sri Lanka has just one win from five matches with two games resulting in washouts.

In their last match against Afghanistan, England skipper Eoin Morgan hit 17 sixes, a world record, to help England post 397/6 in 50 overs. Morgan smashed 148 off just 71 balls as England won the match by 150 runs.

Fast bowler Mark Wood believes Morgan’s audacious ball striking, which helped England to a massive score, sums up the team’s fearless approach to one-day cricket in recent years.

“It was amazing, amazing,” Wood told reporters. “Coming off his back injury scare and stuff, and not knowing how he would play or feel, I was just astounded by how well he played.

“A lot of the bowlers tend to sit in the back of the dressing room and try and relax but even I came out and watched that because it was great to see on such a big occasion.

“I know we’ve played like this for four years now, and there’s been some remarkable things, but to do it in a World Cup game speaks volumes about how Eoin wants the team to play and the values we’ve kept going throughout those four years.”
