Despite posting a modest target of 233 runs against England, Sri Lanka staged a brilliant fight back with the ball yesterday. After losing two early wickets as both openers -- James Vince and Jonny Bairstow -- departed, Joe Root and English skipper Eoin Morgan held the ship for the hosts until Isuru Udana took a stunning return catch to dismiss the centurion of the previous game for England. It was in the fourth ball of the 19th over when Morgan struck an uppish drive to a low full-toss from Udana which was travelling towards his right side as the left arm seamer who had very little reaction time to take the catch brilliantly grabbed the ball with his both hands to dismiss the danger man.
