England has managed to continue their stellar Test run by conceiving a victory amidst the Sri Lankan conditions by a whopping 211-run margin, one of their greatest ever triumphs against the Sri Lankan XI. Credits to some fantabulous performances from Jack Leach (2/41 and 3/60) and Moeen Ali (4/55 and 4/71) for uprooting the Lankan wickets in both innings of the contest. While the duo emerged successful in affecting dismissals, the likes of Ben Foakes( 107), Sam Curran (48) and Keaton Jennings( 46 and 146) popped fruitful with their batting prowess, which eventually led the Englishmen to row themselves in the lakes of victory. The conquest wouldn’t have hopped onto the laps of the visitors, had Root’s XI faltered in rendering gritty performances both with the bat and with the ball at regular intervals. Here are some of the famous tweets from Sri Lanka vs England 1st Test Twitter Reactions following England’s 211-run victory over the Sri Lankan XI.
