SL vs ENG Dream11 Team | Sri Lanka vs England Only T20I

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

R Premadasa Stadium, Colombo, October 27 at 07:00 PM IST

In a bid to salvage pride, Srilanka will face the English side for a one-off T20 match which will be played at the R. Premadasa Stadium in Colombo. After a consolidating yet handsome win in the last ODI of the series, Sri Lankan team will look to continue with their spirited performance from the last ODI to register a win in the only T20I.

England, on the other hand, rested their skipper and eventual man of the series Eoin Morgan for the final ODI which turned out to be a disaster of a move as England slumped to their worst defeat against Sri Lanka in ODI cricket.

England have been good in the past when it comes to the shortest format of the game. Despite losing a 3 match T0I series at home against India they look robust and ready to go for this encounter. Sri Lanka, on the other hand, won their last T20I at home against South Africa and will look to carry forward that momentum in this game.

Last ODI result at the venue: Sri Lanka 299/8 lost to South Africa 121 – AUG 12 5th ODI, South Africa tour of Sri Lanka, 2018

SL vs ENG Dream11 Team

Wicket-keeper: Among the wicketkeepers, you can choose either one of Niroshan Dickwella and Jos Buttler as both these batsmen are imperious in the shortest format.

 

Batsmen: Jason Roy is a dasher at the top order and is an important batsman for England, Eoin Morgan is another choice whom you can pick as he is in a good knick and also was the recipient the man of the series award in the ODI series.

Kusal Perera and Dinesh Chandimal are the other picks in this category.

 

All-rounders: We would suggest you to pick Moeen Ali here as he will be a fruitful option with both bat and ball. Among others, go with Thisara Perera as he would be one of the key bowlers in the middle overs and is capable of hitting the long handle at the end of the innings.

 

Bowlers: All eyes would be on the comeback man Lasith Malinga who is still good enough to bowl his fiery yorkers. Liam Plunkett would be a good option as well and Akila Dananjaya will be the key spinner for Sri Lanka yet again.
