Sri Lanka are nowhere near to the quality of England. It was quite visible in the first two games. Sri Lanka struggled to post a total that could challenge England even a bit. The 3rd game will continue to be an experiment of sorts for England and Eoin Morgan as they will continue to rotate players to make sure everyone gets an opportunity to showcase their talent.
Sri Lanka’s batting has been nothing but a huge disappointment so far. Its not that they are not playing to their potential but England bowlers are extremely good and the gulf between the 2 sides is glaring.
In dream11 prediction, lets see some stats of some players from both the teams.
ENG playing 11 (Likely)
Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow, Moeen Ali, Eoin Morgan, Liam Livingstone, Sam Billings, Sam Curran, David Willey, Tom Curran, Chris Woakes, Adil Rashid
SL playing 11 (Likely)
Danushka Gunathilaka, Avishka Fernando, Kusal Perera, Kusal Mendis, Niroshan Dickwella, Dasun Shanaka, Wanindu Hasaranga, Isuru Udana, Akila Dananjaya, Dushmantha Chameera, Binura Fernando

Form guide (Last 5 games)
Who will win today match: The odds are firmly in favor of the home side in England. Sri Lanka need to up their game and shouldn’t play a brand of cricket that’s outdated in T20Is. They should go all out with the bat and them getting 80 or 120 isn’t going to make any difference. Only way they can challenge this England side is to ask them to chase above 8 runs per over from the beginning of their innings.
Betway: ENG: 1.12, SL- 6.00
Bet365- ENG- 1.14, SL- 5.50
Today match score: Team batting first is expected to score around 160 to 180.
Today pitch report: The Rose Bowl is usually a batting paradise but in the last few games, the wickets have been a bit sticky but should be an excellent sporting wicket nonetheless.
Who won yesterday game: SOM won by 7 wickets against HAM.
