Video - Sri Lanka May Change Strategy - Mathews

Sri Lanka captain Angelo Mathews says his team might have to adopt a different strategy when they take on England on what is a must-win game for them at The Oval tomorrow (13th June).

After a one-wicket defeat to New Zealand, the Sri Lankans need to win to stand a realistic chance of going through to the semi-finals of the ICC Champions Trophy 2013.

With the wicket in London expected to favour bounce, and with reverse swing due to come in to play, Sri Lanka may again opt to only play one specialist spinner, a strategy that almost got them over the line against New Zealand.

"We might have to rethink our strategies a little bit on these conditions on this wicket which has a little bit of bounce," Mathews said at a press conference.

"I think the way we approach, we got to stay positive as possible and try and take them on."
