Pitch Condition:The same pitch will be used in this game as the one on which New Zealand thrashed England. To that end, England have been preparing with an expectation that the ball may again swing throughout the innings. At least one side has been bowled out in each of the last three ODIs on the ground and only five times has a team exceeded 300 here; once since the end of 2005.
England have won only five games against one of the top eight Test nations at World Cups since they lost the 1992 final in Melbourne.
Sri Lanka have won both ODI series against England in the last year; home and away
Upul Tharanga's average in World Cups rises to 38.50, from a career average of 33.57
James Anderson has 24 World Cup wickets at 40.41 overall
