England v Sri Lanka, 2016

Wisden's review of the second ODI, England v Sri Lanka, 2016

At Birmingham, June 24 (day/night). England won by ten wickets. England 2pts. Toss: Sri Lanka.
England surged to only their sixth ten-wicket victory in one-day internationals, clinching - virtually unnoticed - the Super Series with four matches to play. Sri Lanka had been restricted to 254 for seven, with Rashid producing an especially probing spell; the highlight was a sprightly unbeaten 53 from Tharanga, formerly an opener but now down at No. 7. England's openers soon made the target look insignificant, sprinting to centuries - Hales from 91 balls, Roy from 92. Hales hit six sixes to Roy's four, and both finished with format-bests; Hales's 133 not out, which included 26 from an over of Prasanna's leg-spin costing 27, was for five days an England record against Sri Lanka, surpassing David Gower's 130 at Taunton during the 1983 World Cup.
Their eventual stand of 256 was also the highest for any England wicket, beating 250 for the second between Andrew Strauss and Jonathan Trott against Bangladesh here six years earlier, and the highest total to win without loss in ODIs, beating 236 by New Zealand to defeat Zimbabwe at Harare in August 2015. After victory was completed with more than 15 overs to spare, Hales and Roy strode off to raucous singing from the Edgbaston crowd. Umpire Oxenford sported a lollipop-shaped perspex shield for the first time in England; despite the openers' onslaught, he did not need to employ its circular screen to protect himself.
