England vs Sri Lanka 2014: Live Streaming, TV Channel, Start Time for 1st Investec Test Day 5 (+Highlights, Score)

England and Sri Lanka face-off at Lord’s in Day 5 of the 1st Investec Test on Monday, June 16.

It’s the last day of the test. The match will start at 11 a.m. BST (4:30 p.m. IST).

The match will be broadcast live on Sky Sports 2 in the United Kingdom, CSN in Sri Lanka, and Willow TV in the United States.

Live streaming will be available via Sky, and CSN, as well as Willow TV.

Day 4 ended with England leading by 389 runs with two wickets remaining, according to Cric Info.

“We’re assuming that England will declare overnight and set Sri Lanka 390 to win, which would ensure Ballance his red ink in the scorebook. Regardless of your views on the tactics, that was a superb innings from Ballance–the next highest score was 35–and it prevented Sri Lanka from taking the initiative after a brilliant middle session in the field,” it reported.

“England, fragile as they are, probably didn’t want to risk setting a target this evening, though it may well cost them winning the game; even if the bounce is a bit more mischievous and the rough a little more ready on the final day, Sri Lanka will be confident of lasting 90 overs.”

The 2nd Investec Test at Leeds will start on Friday, June 20. That one will also run for five days.

Following that series, England next plays India starting on Wednesday, July 9. Sri Lanka will next face South Africa starting on the same day.
