SL vs ENG Dream11 Match Prediction | Who Will Win Today match
Dambulla, October 10 at 02:30 PM IST
England kickstart their tour of Sri Lanka locking horns with the hosts in the first One Day International of the five-match series at Rangiri Dambulla International Stadium on Wednesday.
The visitors warmed up with a win in the one-day practice game against a decent Sri Lanka XI side, with Moeen Ali, Joe Root and Eoin Morgan delivering for the side. England come into the ODI series after beating number two ranked India 2-1 earlier this summer and whitewashing Australia 5-0 before that.
It has been a struggle for Sri Lanka in the white-ball formats for a while. At last month’s Asia Cup, they lost their two games against Bangladesh and Afghanistan to crash out of the tournament in the league stage. However, familiar wickets and conditions give them a fair chance against in-form England.
Pitch conditions: Rangiri Dambulla International Stadium is known to offer help to the slow bowlers.
Last ODI result at the venue: Sri Lanka 244/8 lost to South Africa 246/6 – South Africa tour of Sri Lanka at Dambulla, Aug 01 2018
Angelo Mathews has been dropped from Sri Lankan side and Dinesh Chandimal will captain the side.
Warwickshire paceman Olly Stone is set for England debut.
Liam Dawson is also in contention if England goes with three spinners

Wicket-keeper: Dinesh Chandimal bats in the top-3 for Sri Lanka while Buttler is a lower-middle order batsman. We would go with the former.
Batsmen: England’s top 3 – Jonny Bairstow, Joe Root, Jason Roy – can give you most points, along with Sri Lanka’s seasoned campaigner Upul Tharanga.
All-rounders: Thisara Perera and Moeen Ali are the best two all-rounder options basis the conditions. Ben Stokes is another option.
Bowlers: Akila Danajaya is the first bowler pick, for he knows the conditions better than anyone and has been among the wickets lately. Adil Rashid is another who can come into play in spin-friendly conditions.
