Fantasy AnalysisSri Lanka will have a depleted roster for the final match with Dinesh Chandimal and Jeffrey Vandersay suspended for the match and Angelo Mathews returning home for personal reasons.
Fantasy AnalysisButtler produced an outstanding display with the bat for the home side. The wicketkeeper-batsman came out to bat in a tricky situation and scored his 17th half-century in the 50-over and second in last four innings. The most impressive aspect of Buttler's knock was his strike-rate of 186.20, which was the best by any batsman in the match.
Fantasy AnalysisRashid had a poor day with the ball for the home side. Even though the leg-spinner managed to claim scalps of dangerous Travis Head and Ashton Agar, but he finished with an economy-rate of 7.30, second-most expensive from any England bowler. However, Rashid also bowled 26 dot balls in his full quota of 10 overs, joint-most in the match alongside pacer Mark Wood.
Fantasy AnalysisRoot produced an outstanding display with the ball for the home side. The 27-year-old, who is generally famous for his batting, finished the day as the most economical bowler from both sides with an economy-rate of just 4.40. It was only the second time in Root's career and the first instance since May 2017 when he bowled his full quota of 10 overs in an ODI match.
Fantasy AnalysisPaine had another miserably display with the bat for the team. The Australia captain came into the match under a lot of question marks over his batting, and Thursday's failure did not help him one bit. With scores of 12, 15, five and three in the four matches of the series, time is running out for Paine to show the world and Cricket Australia that he has what it takes to lead his nation in the 50-over format.
