ICC Cricket World Cup Super League points table (updated) as on June 30




Current world champions England returned to the top of the ICC World Cup table in cricket with a five-wicket win against Sri Lanka in Chester-le-Street.

Courtesy of this win, Eoin Morgan’s men climbed to first place in the ICC World Cup cricket Super League. They have the same number of points as Bangladesh, but England’s net running rate is superior.

Meanwhile, Sri Lanka is still at the bottom of the scale. The islanders have only eight points to their name after seven matches. If they continue to play in this tournament so far, they will struggle to earn a direct ticket to the 2023 Cricket World Cup.

Root, Woakes and Bairstow shine for England at the opening of the ICC Cricket World Cup Super League series against Sri Lanka

Playing at Riverside Ground, the home team defeated Sri Lanka with a 15.1 surplus. Despite that Kusal Perera and half a century of Wanindu Hasaranga, Sri Lanka managed only 185 runs in its first substitutions. Chris Woakes played for the English team as he returned the numbers 4/18 in his ten overs.

Jonny Bairstow provided a fantastic start to England in the second inning. He scored 43 runs out of 21 deliveries at the top, but the guests responded by scalping four fast gates. Joe Root ensured that the English team did not crash by playing a mature dick of 79 runs. His half-century helped England win by five gates.

The second ODI series England vs. Sri Lanka will take place in London’s Kennington Oval on 1 July. It will be interesting to see if visitors can stay alive in this ICC World Cup cricket Superleague series.
