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