England captain Alastair Cook has been suspended from the 4th ODI against Sri Lanka, due to slow-over rate during their win in the 3rd ODI at Hambantota.

Cook has been suspended by ICC Match Referee David Boon because the England team was ruled to be one over short “after time allowances were taken into consideration”. He has been fined 20% of his match fee whereas his teammates have been fined 10% of their match fees. 

In his absence, Eoin Morgan will lead the side and Alex Hales will open the batting with Moeen Ali. With Ian Bell not in form, it is expected that James Taylor will make his ODI debut.  

Probable Playing XI for England for the 4th ODI:

Alex Hales, Moeen Ali, James Taylor, Joe Root, Eoin Morgan, Ravi Bopara, Jos Buttler, Chris Jordan, Chris Woakes, Steven Finn, James Tredwell
