ENG Playing 11: After winning the first T20I comfortably, England will take on Sri Lanka in the second match here at Cardiff. The hosts were relentless in the first match as their bowlers restricted SL to a paltry score which the batters chased down with ease. England clearly showed why they are the No. 1 side in this format. In head-to-head record in T20Is, England lead Sri Lanka 6-4. With form on their side, they will look to seal the series here.
England didn’t seem to miss their big star players like Archer and Stokes. Their tremendous bench strength was on show in the last game. They are likely to continue their winning combination.
Jos Buttler (wk)
Eoin Morgan (C)
England’s openers gave them a fiery start in the last match and they will look to do the same here. Jos Buttler’s form was particularly impressive as he took the team to victory and remained not out. Other young batters like Liam Livingstone would look to make their case here. The bowling looked threatening with all the bowlers contributing with the new ball and old ball. The English would look to continue their winning momentum.
Eoin Morgan (c), Moeen Ali, Jonathan Bairstow, Sam Billings, Jos Buttler (WK), Sam Curran, Tom Curran, Liam Dawson, Chris Jordan, Liam Livingstone, Dawid Malan, Adil Rashid, Jason Roy, David Willey, Chris Woakes, Mark Wood.
