England cruised to a six wicket victory over Sri Lanka on Wednesday, thanks, in large part, to the efforts of Jason Roy who smashed 162 of 118 balls to carry his team to the brink of victory.
A brilliant 162 from Jason Roy helped England to six wicket victory over Sri Lanka with England taking a decisive 2-0 lead in the five match series with one ODI left to play. Sri Lanka had set what looked like a competitive total despite having their innings interrupted by a long rain delay which saw the contest reduced to 42 overs a side.
