Sri Lanka notched up its second win in the ICC World Cup 2019 at Headingley on Friday, defeating England by 20 runs in a low-scoring, entertaining contest.

Lasith Malinga, with a four-wicket haul, and Angelo Mathews, with an unbeaten 85, were the chief contributors for Sri Lanka.

It was England's second defeat in the competition, after its batting unravelled uncharacteristically in its chase of a seemingly modest target of 233.

Sportstar does a recap of the game, with infographics.
