SL vs ENG Dream11 Match Prediction | Who Will Win Today Match

Pallekele, November 14 at 10:00 AM IST

England’s win at Galle last week was their first Test win away from home since October 2016. No doubt, the visitors were a better unit in the first Test and deserve every bit of credit for the victory in Galle but Sri Lanka cannot be written off.

England will see the second Test as a golden opportunity to seal the series, against the opposition that has been plagued with injuries, suspect action concerns and outgoing spin wizard. To be fair, there’s a good chance of England winning it here.

Sri Lanka, on the other hand, were left shell-shocked in Galle. However, they would like to remember England have had a little success in Asia and put pressure on them here. With the series at stake, there is no room for error now for the hosts. They must lift their game for the flip.

Last Test result at the venue: India 489 all-out defeat Sri Lanka 135 & 181 (f/o) – August 12-14, India’s tour of Sri Lanka 2017

There have been only six Tests played at the Pallekele International Stadium. The last two results suggest to be on the chaser would be reckless. Sri Lanka, batting first, beat Australia despite being bowled out for 117 on day one in 2016. Last year India won by an innings after posting 487.

Galle Test performers:

England will be relieved after opener Keaton Jennings got back among the runs. Ben Foakes and Moeen Ali were the others big contributors in England’s win at Galle Test. Angelo Mathews gave it back to critics and selectors for dropping him earlier, being the best batsman from Sri Lankan side in both innings.

Spin to win:

Given the spin-friendly conditions, you can pick the likes of Dilruwan Perera, Jack Leach, Moeen Ali and Adil Rashid, all being very capable of beating the bat with their craft.

Other bets that are worth:

Dimuth Karunaratne, Joe Root, Jos Buttler and Kusal Mendis are all quality batsman and can be backed.


Dinesh Chandimal has been ruled out for two weeks. Charith Asalanka comes in for him.

Rangana Herath has retired from International cricket.

Jonny Bairstow will undergo a fitness test. Ollie Pope has been withdrawn from England squad.
