SL vs ENG Dream11 Match Prediction | Who Will Win Today match
Pallekele, October 20 at 09:45 AM IST
After a horror show in the Asia Cup 2018, Sri Lanka are now staring at ODI series defeat at home. England lead the series 2-0 and the hosts must win the remaining two to level the series.
Sri Lanka have been struggling in the last couple of years, having lost 32 out of their last 44 ODIs. The record is worse at home where they have lost 12 out of previous 15 ODIs. If things don’t go right here, they might rue falling out with Angelo Mathews and dropping Upul Tharanga in the second ODI.
On the other hand, England played like the top-ranked side in the format on Wednesday (Oct 17). They outperformed the hosts in all three departments and soaked pressure well when the going got tough. England would want to collect another win here and build on their reputation.
Pitch and weather conditions: There was not much in the surface for bowlers on Wednesday’s game, although bowlers could not grip the ball because of a wet outfield. If we get a full game, we can see a lot of runs being scored.
Last ODI result at the venue: Sri Lanka 150/9 lost to England 153/3 (Match reduced to 21 overs per side due to rain) – Oct 17 3rd ODI, England tour of Sri Lanka, 2018

England will start as favourites. We’d pick more English players in our Dream11 team.
Wicket-keeper: Niroshan Dickwella came good with the bat in the third ODI. On the other, England’s Jos Buttler is as good a choice. You can choose either of the two.
Batsmen: English skipper Eoin Morgan has been the best batsmen in the series so far. Jason Roy, Sadeera Samarawickrama and Sri Lankan skipper Dinesh Chandimal are among others who have made vital contributions with the bat.
All-rounders: Chris Woakes was brilliant with the ball in the second game, while Ben Stokes contributed with the bat in the previous outing. Thisara Perera and Moeen Ali are among others who can come good.
