ENG vs SL today match prediction: Sri Lanka need to win this series against the world champions in this format to stay in hunt for 2023 world cup as they are in terrible situation at the moment. They have managed to win just one game so far in ODI super league which is a gateway for 2023 world cup. It will be an impossible task for Sri Lanka to topple England in their home and Sri Lanka are without their best batsman from their previous series against West Indies in Danushka Gunathilaka.
England will be missing the services of Jason Roy and they will be playing Dawid Malan in place of him who will open the innings.

Who will win today match: It’s a no brainer that England start the game as favorites against a nothing Sri Lankan side. The gulf between the two sides is quite evident and England can toy with this Sri Lankan side. The only way where Sri Lanka can compete with this England side is by playing ruthless cricket and minimum security game against England side is not going to help anyone.
Today match score: The average first innings score in 2019 was around 280.
Today pitch report: The wicket will aid fast bowlers big time and it will have good bounce and carry. There will be runs on offer once the new ball stops swinging.
