Morgan, Rashid shine as England beat Sri Lanka

MNA Sports Desk: Captain Eoin Morgan smashed his second half-century in two games and Adil Rashid took four wickets to help England crush Sri Lanka by seven wickets in the rain-marred third one-day international on Wednesday.

Chasing 151 in 21 overs after persistent rain had shortened the match, the visitors rode on Morgan’s unbeaten 58, including seven fours, to reach 153-3 with 15 balls to spare.

Jason Roy (41) and Ben Stokes (35 not out) gave Morgan valuable support as England took a 2-0 lead in the five-match series after the opening game was washed out.

Earlier, Adil Rashid produced a masterful display of spin bowling to claim 4-36 in five overs as Sri Lanka squandered a good start to struggle to 150-9 in 21 overs, reported news agency.
