2023 World Cup: England completely demolished!… Named this bad record; This team is full of star players yearning for victory

England’s record: England’s poor performance continues in the 2023 World Cup. Sri Lanka defeated England by 8 wickets on Thursday (26 October). After this, the world champion team is also being criticized a lot. England are currently 9th in the points table with just 1 win from 5 matches. The biggest thing is that now only a miracle can take the team to the semi-finals. With the defeat against Sri Lanka, the team’s record is also poor.

England’s poor condition

The England team, full of explosive batsmen like Stokes, Root and Butler, is almost on the verge of being eliminated from the 2023 World Cup. Had to face defeat from Sri Lanka by 8 wickets. England captain Jos Buttler won the toss and decided to bat first. 11 batsmen of the team were out for just 156 runs in a very poor performance. Ben Stokes, playing the first match of the World Cup 2023, scored the highest score of 43 runs, while Jonny Bairstow scored 30 and David Malan scored 28 runs. In reply, Sri Lanka made an unbeaten 137-run partnership between Pathum Nissanka (77) and Sadira Samarawickrama (65) and won the match in 25.4 overs.

A record for world champion

The defending world champion England, while losing the match against Sri Lanka, achieved a record which the team had not even dreamed of. In fact, this is the first time since 1996 that England have scored a hat-trick of defeats in the World Cup. After 27 years, England has repeated this bad record. In the last five World Cup matches, Sri Lanka has defeated England on each occasion.

Record partnership of Sri Lankan batsmen

Sri Lanka’s Pathum Nissanka (77) and Sadira Samarawickrama (65) made an unbeaten partnership of 137 runs for the third wicket. This is Sri Lanka’s third highest partnership against England in the World Cup. At the same time, this is the biggest partnership for the third wicket.
