ENG Playing 11: After a one-sided T20I series, England will face Sri Lanka in the first match of ODI series here at Chester-le-Street in Durham. The hosts are in superb white-ball form at the moment and look very strong on paper. Led by Eoin Morgan, they have one of the best strategic captains in the world. His impact on this team has been huge. In overall head-to-head record, both teams have 36 wins apiece in a total of 75 matches. England are No. 4 in the ODI Rankings while Sri Lanka are at No. 9.

Despite missing Roy, England have a decent replacement in form of Dawid Malan at the top. Joe Root has been providing a steady ship at No. 3 and it will be interesting to see how he performs on his return to white-ball cricket. The presence of all-rounders lower down the order makes their batting deep and gives them plenty of options in bowling too. Adil Rashid has been an underrated bowler but he has been superb for England in the middle overs.
