Durham Weather: It’s 19 degrees Celsius, with some spells of overcast conditions. There might be rain, but the chances are around 20%.
Jonny Bairstow: He got some runs during the T20I series, especially in the last game, where he scored 51 runs from 43 balls. He will be quite crucial for England. Apart from this, he has got a lot of runs during the last ODI series in India. He has 3426 runs at an average of 48.25 in his ODI career. Interestingly, the last time an ODI was played here, he was the centurion.
Kusal Perera: The Sri Lankan skipper has to put up a good performance in the ODI series for his team to get some respectability. He is nearing 3000 ODI runs in his career and would want to reach the milestone and also get a big score for his team.
Chris Woakes: He is the most experienced bowler in this England team. He has taken 149 wickets in 104 matches so far. Woakes will be a key bowler with the new ball. He can also contribute with the bat and has 1315 career ODI runs.
Wanindu Hasaranga: In the T20I series, he found some grip and turn which helped him to confuse the English batters. He has taken 21 wickets in 21 matches so far and would want to add some more to his tally.
