England take shock Sri Lanka win

England's Eoin Morgan

England caused a bit of a shock at the ICC Champions Trophy by comfortably beating Sri Lanka, who lots of people fancied to win the contest.

Sri Lanka went in to bat first in Johannesburg. England quickly reduced them to 17-4, but Sri Lanka fought back and were all out for 212.

That looked a tricky target, especially when England hit trouble on 19-2.

But solid work, including 62 for Eoin Morgan, saw them reach 213 for just four wickets.

England play South Africa next, in Centurion Park in South Africa on Sunday.
