Recalled Denly stars as England beat Sri Lanka in T20

Recalled Denly stars as England beat Sri Lanka in T20

After the five-match One-Day International (ODI) series between Sri Lanka and England, which the latter won by 3-1, the two teams will lock horns in the one-off T20 International. Adil Rashid's figures of 3/11 in this game are the second best bowling figures by an England spinner in a T20I game. They will hope that Kusal Mendis' return to form and a bold, watch-winning innings from skipper Dinesh Chandimal has sparked a revival of limited-overs form.

Joe Root is likely to be rested and Joe Denly is expected to replace him.

Dasun Shanaka (10) and Isuru Udana (2) were next to fall off the bowling of Liam Plunkett and Chris Jordan respectively, with the hosts still requiring 69 runs to win from 26 balls. England's other legspinner - the main one - Adil Rashid then claimed three wickets through the middle overs to essentially seal victory for his team. He has been very consistent as well.

The batsmen who began Tuesday's onslaught were Niroshan Dickwella, who has had a good limited-overs leg of this tour, and Sadeera Samarawickrama, who made his maiden worldwide fifty.

Much-hyped debutant Mendis had earlier showcased his remarkable ability to bowl right and left arm spin, and will surely be seen again. "They are going well in Asia". Alex Hales has not played all the ODI matches so he will definitely want to prove his worth in this T20I. Ball tracking later showed that it was missing leg-stump, and that Roy should have asked his partner to review it. Roy was also the culprit in the run-out of captain Eoin Morgan, who returned to the dressing room looking unhappy after a misunderstanding with Roy.

Ben Stokes has not be chosen because he will bat number 6 and England batting is so strong that he might not get enough balls to play and he has been unimpressive with the ball in T20Is. Batting first, the visitors were able to post an above par score of 187 runs.

Denly, 32, made 14 one-day appearances for England nearly a decade ago but never featured in a Test match.

Denly also scored a handy 20 from 17 balls which, after he initially struggled against fast bowler Lasith Malinga's clever variations, included three juicy boundaries.

The 28-year-old's luck finally ran out after successive maximums as he directed a thin edge into Niroshan Dickwella's waiting hands, but any Sri Lankan momentum was checked by a pause for light rain. They are bowling good lengths, which is the main thing.
