England vs Sri Lanka Dream11: Top 5 Fantasy Cricket Picks for 3rd T20I


The T20I series between England and Sri Lanka is going ahead on the expected lines. The modern-day English limited-overs side proved to be too hot for the Lankan side as they fell apart in the initial two T20Is. The three-match T20I series is already decided with England clinching the series with a 2-0 lead. But that doesn’t take away the excitement leading up to the 3rd T20I. England will be aiming to try out their bench strength and Sri Lanka will be aiming to upset the home side at least once, to push themselves up for the upcoming T20I World Cup in October.  So let us look at the five prominent names from this fixture that would earn you better profit in fantasy cricket.

This young southpaw is a must-have pick in any of the fantasy teams. He has been brilliant right throughout this series.

His ability to bowl at the start and at the death added with his exploits with the bat makes him the most valuable fantasy pick for this fixture.
