#England vs Sri Lanka Team News

England :

Eoin Morgan’s side have been in sensational form, and arrive off the back of a record-breaking victory over Afghanistan. Currently they are at 2nd place of Icc world cup table by wining 4 matches against South Africa,Bangladesh,West Indies,Afghanistan and loosing 1 match against Pakistan With NRR of +1.862.

England, led by Eoin Morgan, have been in sublime form, especially with the bat as they posted 300 plus scores in four of the five games – two of them being 386/6 against Bangladesh and 397/6 against Afghanistan. Four English batsmen — Joe Root (367), Eoin Morgan (249), Jonny Bairstow (218) and Jason Roy (215) — are among the 10 highest-scoring batsmen in the ongoing tournament so far.

As for England, their star player, Jason Roy is sadly down with a hamstring tear that he suffered during their match against the West Indies. Their captain Eoin Morgan is also suffering from back spasms. However, England is one of the stronger teams, and their order is rather crisp.

Wood and Archer are the top 2 bowling attack for the england team.From past 2 matches Archer took 6 wickets and Mark Wood took 5 wickets.

Sri Lanka :

Sri Lanka, meanwhile, still have unlikely ambitions of reaching the semi-finals, but were badly hit by washed out games earlier in the tournament which have left them needing upset wins to progress.They are at 6th place of ICC world cup table.

In their last game against Australia, Sri Lanka suffered an 87-run loss at the Kennington Oval in London and therefore, it would need an extraordinary performance from Dimuth Karunaratne’s men to get past an in-form English side.

Sri Lanka is also battling a few controversies. In fact, after the last world cup, Sri Lanka has only won one ODI series, resulting in their 9th spot on the ODI table. However, with Dimuth Karunaratne being appointed as the captain was slated to be a game changer for the Sri Lankans.

Milinda Siriwardene could drop out for the all-round abilities of Jeevan Mendis with the pitch set to help the spinners a bit in the middle overs. With Lakmal’s fitness still in doubt, the rest of the side should remain unchanged with much expected from Angelo Mathews
