As it happened: England vs Sri Lanka, Champions Trophy Game 8

A buoyant England look hungry after their win over Australia, but it will be a battle of survival for Sri Lanka.

The two teams have made contrasting starts to their campaign in the eight-team event, which is being played for the last time. While England thrashed defending champions Australia by 48 runs, Sri Lanka lost by a wicket against New Zealand in a low-scoring thriller.

Going purely by how the two teams performed in their respective openers, England would start favourites at The Oval.
