Morgan calls for reaction after shock Sri Lanka defeat

England forgot the basics of a run chase, captain Eoin Morgan said after his team’s shock defeat by Sri Lanka in a low-scoring World Cup thriller on Friday.
Old warhorse Lasith Malinga led Sri Lanka’s bowling effort with 4-43 to upstage England despite Ben Stokes’ unbeaten 82.
England face tough tests in their next three matches when they take on holders Australia next week before facing India and New Zealand, the only two unbeaten sides in the tournament.
England have not beaten any of them in the World Cup since 1992 but Morgan has faith in his team’s ability to bounce back.
