ICC Champions Trophy - England V Sri Lanka

Will the match be affected by rain? Check the weather forecast.

England's second match of the 2013 ICC Champions Trophy is against Sri Lanka at the home of Surrey County Cricket, The Oval. Sri Lanka were joint winners with India in the 2002 Champions Trophy.

The Oval has staged international cricket since 1882, and it is the ground where The Ashes were born on 29 August 1882. The ground has taken its oval shape from the original road which looped around the market garden which stood on the same spot before the cricket pitch was laid.
