SL vs ENG Dream11 Match Prediction | Who Will Win Today match
Pallekele, October 17 at 02:30 PM IST
Sri Lanka’s misery in white-ball cricket continued in the second ODI at Dambulla while the English demonstrated hunger and dominance in their game.
England played like number one ranked ODI side, winning Dambulla ODI comprehensively. Batting first on a pitch that was not easy, they put a par total of 278/9 on the board. Their bowlers were on the money as well, wrecking Sri Lanka’s top order early in the chase.
Sri Lanka would be under pressure after a dismal performance. For the hosts to challenge the top-ranked ODI side, their batting must come good. On the last 19 occasions in the last two years, they have got to 250 or more only five times.
Pitch and weather conditions: The weather forecast at Pallekele means dry surface and help for slow bowlers.
Last ODI result at the venue: Sri Lanka 306/7 beat South Africa 187/9 (revised target 191 in 21 overs) – Aug 8, 2018, 4th ODI, South Africa Tour of Sri Lanka at Kandy
England spinner Liam Dawson has been ruled out with a side strain. All-rounder Joe Denly has been added in his place as the replacement, although he is unlikely to arrive in time here.
Sri Lanka, too have received a major jolt with Kusal Perera ruled out due to injury. Sadeera Samarawickrama is likely to replace Perera.
Here’s how the two sides may lineup for Sri Lanka vs England 3rd ODI

England will start as favourites again. We’d pick more English players in our Dream11 team.
Wicket-keeper: Niroshan Dickwella has again let go of the opportunity and is an uncertain starter. Jos Buttler, despite batting lower-down the batting order, would be a better option.
Batsmen: English skipper Eoin Morgan and Joe Root dominated Sri Lankan bowlers in the second ODI. Upul Tharanga, Jason Roy and Jonny Bairstow are among others most likely to fire.
All-rounders: Thisara Perera and Moeen Ali are the best two all-rounder options on the basis of conditions. Ben Stokes could be another choice.
Bowlers: Lasith Malinga claimed a 5-fer in the second ODI at Dambulla but would need more support from Akila Danajaya. Among the visitors, Chris Woakes who took 3/26 in the last outing along with Adil Rashid would be the best fantasy picks.
