ENG vs SL Dream11 team: who will win today match prediction?


ENG vs SL dream11 today match prediction: England outplayed Sri Lanka fair and square as expected in the first ODI. Sri Lanka had a messed up batting order with Dasun Shanaka batting at #4 in an ODI game as he was batting a good 2 positions above his ceiling. Wanindu Hasaranga was slotted to bat at 5 which was a welcome move as Sri Lanka have learnt from the West Indies tour where they wasted him lower down the order.

The all-rounder responded with an impressive 50 and was the only shining light along with his captain Kusal Perera in the batting lineup.

ENG vs SL dream11 team today

Lets take a look at the strengths, weaknesses and stats of some players from both the sides

  • Jonny Bairstow is a white ball superstar. There is absolutely no denying that he is one of the top 2 openers in white ball cricket at the moment. He blasted the Sri Lankan bowling attack in first ODI by scoring 43 off just 21 balls. With the wicket in London expected to be a belter, he will be licking his lips to score a massive 100 if they bat first.
  • The ever reliable Joe Root played his part to perfection in the first game where he anchored his team to home when England lost quick wickets when nearing their target.
  • Chris Woakes is one of the best new ball bowlers in ODIs and it was evident when he picked 4 wickets for 18 runs in 10 overs including 5 maidens in the first game.
  • Wanindu Hasaranga’s promotion to #5 might end up as the only positive for Sri Lanka in this series. He showed brilliant signs with the bat.
  • Binura Fernando’s left arm angle is the only way to stop Jonny Bairstow early in the innings. He should try to bring the ball back in as it is one area where Jonny Bairstow is vulnerable.
