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.
In dream11 prediction, lets take a look game plan for both the teams.
ENG playing 11 (Likely)
Jos Buttler (wk), Jason Roy, Dawid Malan, Jonny Bairstow, Eoin Morgan, Moeen Ali, Sam Curran, Chris Woakes ,Chris Jordan, Mark Wood, Adil Rashid

Danushka Gunathilaka, Kusal Perera (wk), Oshada Fernando, Pathum Nissanka, Kusal Mendis, Dhananjaya De Sliva, Dasun Shanaka, Wanindu Hasaranga, Akila Dananjaya, Dushmantha Chameera, Lakshan Sandakan

ENG: 6 wins in 6 games

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.
Bet365- ENG- 1.22, SL- 4 33
