England vs Sri Lanka- Previews and Betting Tips

It wasn’t an easy job to defeat the undefeated. However, England did it wonderfully. Choosing to bat first, England came out all guns blazing. Alex Hales scored a gritty 40-ball 52 while skipper Jos Buttler scored a scintillating 47-ball 73. These knocks helped England get to a huge total of 179/6. Chasing 180, the Kiwis had a shaky start by skipper Kane Williamson & star batter Glenn Phillips took charge and started shifting gears. Came into rescue were Chris Woakes and Sam Curran who bagged 2/33 and 2/26, respectively to hand the Kiwis a 20-run defeat.

Meanwhile, Sri Lanka were ticking all the boxes as they went on to torment the Afghans at the Gabba. Being asked to bowl first, the Lankans could do no wrong as the leading wicket-taker of this tournament struck thrice. Wanidu Hasranag bagged 3/13 as Afghanistan could only manage to put up 144/8. It wasn’t a big total to chase and with the confidence among the Sri Lankan players, this was a cakewalk. Dhananjaya de Silva walked out and smashed a mind-blowing 42-ball 66* to get his side a six-wicket win.

However, going head-to-head, England have won all the past five encounters the two teams had. With exceptional talent and firepower alongside past dominance, we predict England to win today’s t20 world cup match. This will be a thrilling contest as both teams, especially England are desperate for those two points. It’s the best time to use your cricketing knowledge and enjoy some betting action.

England needs these two points to qualify for the semi-finals and with a bit of luck, improve their NRR. They will be extremely reliant on skipper Jos Buttler who finally found his rhythm. Courtesy of his heroics last game, he now has scored 241 runs in his 6 recent matches. Dawid Malan has also been among the runs. The southpaw has 303 in his previous 9 matches at 50.50. Plenty will be expected of hard-hitter Alex Hales, Moeen Ali, and Liam Livingstone. As for the bowling department, Sam Curran has a whopping 19 wickets in his past 8 matches. He has been a delight to watch alongside, Markwood, who has 12 scalps in six matches. The list of performers goes on as these are the ones that can make magic happen by themselves.

Squad: Jos Buttler(C)(wk), Alex Hales, Moeen Ali, Liam Livingstone, Harry Brook, Ben Stokes, Sam Curran, Dawid Malan, Chris Woakes, Adil Rashid, Mark Wood

Sri Lanka

It’s a very tricky situation as a negative NRR has kept their hands tied. However, a big win here may still bring in some hope for their advancement to the next round. They’ll need a miracle from Wanidu Hasranaga who has 19 scalps in his past 10 encounters. He is also the current highest wicket-taker of the tournament with 13 wickets in 7 games. Meanwhile, Dhananjaya de Silva will come in very handy courtesy of his all-around skills.

The batting has been quite shaky against the big teams but Kusal Mendis certainly knows how to handle it. He has amassed 262 runs in his previous ten outings. He will be accompanied by opener Pathum Nissanka, who has 262 runs in nine recent matches. It is game on at the SCG as Sri Lanka looks well-balanced and strong.

Squad: Pathum Nissanka, Kusal Mendis(Wk), Dhananjaya de Silva, Danushka Gunathilaka, Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Dasun Shanaka(C), Wanidu Hasaranga, Chamika Karunaratne, Pramod Madushan, Lahiru Kumara, Maheesh Theekshana

Speaking of the pitch conditions, the track offers equal help to both, the batters and bowlers.

However, batsmen receive value for their shots as the ball comes onto the bat nicely. The average first-inning score is 167 while the second-inning average total is 132. Hence, batting first is a better option after winning the toss.
