ENG vs SL Dream11 Prediction: The first of the three one-day international matches between England and Sri Lanka will take place on 29 June at the Riverside Ground in Chester-le-Street. In the recently concluded three-match T20I series between these two teams, England registered a brilliant 3-0 series whitewash by winning all the three matches convincingly. England will miss the services of Jos Buttler in the three-match ODI series as he is out with a calf injury while 3 Sri Lanka players, Kusal Mendis, Danushka Gunathilaka and Niroshan Dickwella have been suspended following a bio-bubble breach. However, both England and Sri Lanka will now be hoping to do well in the upcoming ODI series in order to gain some crucial ODI Super League points.
