ENG vs SL – ICC T20 World Cup – Team Preview


Before the start, of the ICC T20 World Cup, England was one of the favourites to win the trophy. However, as soon as the tournament began, England’s performance dipped and they are struggling at the group stage. Currently, they are at the second but they have still not confirmed their name for the semi-finals.

Their recent win against New Zealand has raised some hopes for the champions and as they come to play against Sri Lanka, it is expected that the English squad will go for the win. Jos Buttler gave a good start to his team with Alex Hales but the middle order struggled to continue the momentum. The major concern for England is their middle order as none of the batsmen are able to score a strong number.

Overall, the squad looks balanced and England has good depth in their bowling. Sam Curran and Finn Allen will be responsible for the pace attack and breaking the partnerships in the beginning.

Sri Lanka

The Asia Cup 2022 winners, Sri Lanka, have not been in their desired form during the whole tournament. They have seen a lot of ups and down and the whole team has gone through a roller coaster ride. They started their Campaign with a loss against Namibia but made a comeback against UAE and won over the Netherlands. However, the graph again dipped as they witnessed two consecutive losses against Australia and New Zealand. Sri Lanka is coming to play against England after defeating Afghanistan in their previous fixture.

Sri Lanka was able to restrict opponents to 144 runs in 20 overs thanks to Wanindu Hasaranga de Silva’s pivotal spell of 3 wickets for 13 runs in 4 overs. Dhananjaya de Silva played an important knock of not out 66 runs from 42 balls, along with  Bhanuka Rajapaksa, who scored 18 runs from 14 balls. These 2 knocks made things easy for the Srilankan side as they chased down the target in the 19th over, sparing 6 wickets in hand.
