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


England are a white ball powerhouse and Sri Lanka are in a rebuilding phase for a while now. They were hammered by Bangladesh in the 3 match ODI series but they managed to win the last ODI to finish the series on a high. They have some exciting talents under their ranks and they need to play ruthless cricket to even compete against this England side who have a brilliant squad especially for their home conditions.

England will be looking to use this series as an experiment for the WT20 as they need to decide between Dawid Malan and Moeen Ali in the playing XI even though Moeen Ali is a superior T20 player, England are struck with Dawid Malan for some reason.

ENG vs SL dream11 team

In dream11 prediction, lets take a look game plan for both the teams.

  • Jos Buttler has been on and off since long but he is a class player and his century against SRH just proves why one cant discount a player of his caliber.
  • Sri Lanka can look to employ Dhananjaya de Silva, Akila Danajaya and Lakshan Sandakan against England middle order where they have 3 left hand batters.
  • Kusal Perera is someone who likes pace on the ball and he should play a vital innings being the captain and the experienced member of the team
  • England have ample bowling options and the presence of 2 quality spinners who can take the ball either makes the lives of Eoin Morgan much easier.
  • Chris Woakes and Sam Curran make a perfect new ball pair but Moeen Ali might just open the bowling as Sri Lank have 2 left handers opening the innings.
  • Sri Lanka should bat Wanindu Hasaranga higher up the order and give him enough balls to make the damage as he is a bright potential and is being underused.

Today match prediction

Who will win today match: It’s a  no brainer that England start as favorites against this Sri Lankan side who have no resources whatsoever to restrict the mighty England batsmen. Though Sri Lanka have as many as 4 types of spinners, England have some terrific hitters of spinners barring Dawid Malan and it will take some doing for them to stop England.

The best way for Sri Lanka to think about winning against England is to win the toss if they can and chase as they can’t defend any target with their bowling attack.
