BRISTOL: Tom Curran complied with in brother Sam’s steps against Sri Lanka only for rain to reject England a collection clean sweep in the 3rd and also final One-day International in Bristol on Sunday.
Having actually won the preceding Twenty20 International series 3-0, England were on program to finish the ODI campaign with a comparable scoreline after dismissing Sri Lanka for a meagre 166 in 41.1 overs, with Curran taking 4-35 in his maximum 10 overs.
That adhered to Sam’s return of 5-48 during an eight-wicket win at The Oval– the siblings’ Surrey home ground– on Thursday that put England 2-0 up.
But a big downpour after Sri Lanka’s innings indicated the suit was deserted prior to England’s reply could start.
Tom Curran’s wickets represented the right-arm paceman’s initial for England in six white-ball looks. He had actually formerly bowled 34 overs in T20s and also ODIs without success.
Only Dasun Shanaka, with 48 not out, used substantial resistance with the bat.
Sri Lanka’s top order has actually battled throughout the past fortnight, repetitively losing gates to the brand-new round.
And also it was an all-too acquainted tale at the Region Ground as they suffered one more collapse to 63-5 inside 15 overs after shedding the throw as Chris Woakes and also David Willey made very early invasions.
Woakes, the only adjustment to the England side, struck in his second over when he had Sri Lanka captain Kusal Perera cutting into his stumps for 9.
Player-of the-series Willey took the brand-new round ahead of Sam Curran, regardless of his fellow left-arm swing bowler’s success at the Oval, as well as, after yielding 17 runs in his initial two overs, had Aviskha Fernando lbw on review.
Dhananjaya de Silva, that made a great 91 at The Oval, then fell for just 4 when a miscued hook off Woakes was caught by Rashid at great leg– the current example of a Sri Lanka batsman being up to the short sphere.
Wanindu Hasaranga had made 20 when a carry out Tom Curran, at 26 3 years older than Sam, lobbed delicately to Willey at deep square leg, with Sri Lanka currently 87-6.
Tom Curran completed his haul with the help of 2 catches by wicket-keeper Jonny Bairstow, with Chamika Karunaratne well held when the gloveman diving to his right, prior to Binura Fernando edged behind.
Sri Lanka’s running between the arches has actually been poor all excursion and also the innings finished with virtually nine overs to spare when Asitha Fernando was run out after a farcical mix-up with Shanaka.
