Analysis: Pressure catches up with England in shock loss to Sri Lanka (Leeds)

Sri Lanka's stunning win over England has lit up the 2019 World Cup.

Angelo Mathews hit a patient fifty before veteran pacer Lasith Malinga returned with a sensational four-wicket haul in a low-scoring thriller to keep their World Cup semifinal hopes alive.

Mike Hussey provides the analysis on why England crumbled under pressure to lose to Sri Lanka.

With this loss, England stay third in the 10-team table, but their three most difficult group games - against Australia, India and New Zealand - are still to come. Sri Lanka move up to fifth with a distance chance of making the semi finals.
