ENG vs SL Dream11 Prediction 2nd T20I England vs Sri Lanka, Player Stats, Pitch Report 24 June


ENG vs SL Dream11 Prediction: England will be locking horns with Sri Lanka in the second T20I match at the Sophia Gardens in Cardiff on 24 June. England registered a comprehensive 8-wicket victory in the first T20I match against Sri Lanka the other night at the same venue. The Eoin Morgan-led England side are looking as a pretty formidable opposition even in the absence of Ben Stokes and Jofra Archer and it will be really for Sri Lanka to beat them in this limited-overs tour. Thus, England will be looking to seal the series in their favour with another convincing win in the upcoming second T20I match while Sri Lanka will want to put up an improved performance.

Pitch Report:

The pitch at the Sophia Gardens is expected to offer a two-paced wicket as seen in the first T20I match. The surface will help the bowlers especially the spinners will get great amount of assistance as the game progresses. However, the wicket will get better for batting in the second innings and thus, bowling first will be a good option.
