ENG vs SL Dream11 Match Prediction | England vs Sri Lanka Match Preview | Fantasy Team & Team News

England and Srilanka will fight it out in what will be the 6th fixture of the ICC World Cup 2019 for both the teams. The hosts have won 4 of their 5 matches to be in the second spot in the table, while Sri Lanka is labouring with just one win so far. However, the Lankan Lions will rue their luck after seeing 2 of their matches getting washed away due to rain.

Understandably, England will come into the game as favourites. The English are among favourites to lift the coveted trophy for the first time in their history.

ENG vs SL Dream11 Team News

England

  • Jason Roy is ruled out of this match as well. James Vince opened in his place in the previous game. J Vince is likely to keep his place.
  • There is no fresh injury news from the English camp and the captain Eoin Morgan looked fully fit
  • Moeen Ali replaced L Plunkett in the last game and most probably he will keep the place

Sri Lanka

  • Sri Lanka has a number of underperformers and they could make changes again.
  • Milinda Siriwardana could not deliver after getting a chance in the last match. He could be dropped to bring in S Lakmal.
  • Avishka Fernando is also in contention to get a chance as Lahiru Thirimane has failed to produce a single significant knock in five games so far

ENG vs SL Dream11 Fantasy Team

Fantasy picks from England

Joe Root | Eoin Morgan | Jofra Archer

  • Joe Root has 2 centuries and 2 half-centuries in his last 5 matches.
  • Eoin Morgan was in lethal form in the last game where he hit the ball for six 17 times. Expect the captain to deliver again.
  • Jofra Archer has been a  find for England. He has 12 wickets to his name in the World Cup.

Fantasy picks from Sri Lanka

Dimuth Karunaratne | Kusal Perera | Lasith Malinga

  • Karunaratne has lead by example and has looked like the best player for his team. He has 2 half centuries in the tournament so far.
  • Perera, like his captain, has also scored 2 half-centuries at the big stage and will need to shoulder on the responsibilities against a tough opponent.
  • Lasith Malinga has not been in great form for some time now for his national team. But a player of his experience can be relied upon to step up.

Two changes for Sri Lanka – A Fernando and J Mendis replace L Thirimane and M Siriwardene
