CWC 2019 Match 27 – England v Sri Lanka Preview Dream11. ENG vs SL Dream11 Prediction

England and Sri Lanka’s match in the 2015 World Cup was barely a battle. Just months before that tournament, Sri Lanka pummelled England 4-2 on their own turf, before making a mockery of England’s 309 in Wellington.

Fast forward four years later, and these two sides have gone in the complete opposite direction. England have gone from World Cup pretenders to contenders, whereas Sri Lanka have just 12 wins to show in their last 55 completed ODIs. This is not a game the neutral will circle in red as a possible classic, but Sri Lanka know that a win could still keep them in the hunt for a surprise top four spot. Can they cause a significant upset?

Key to an England win

Eoin Morgan was utterly dominant against Afghanistan. In an exhibition of clean hitting, Morgan showcased England’s depth in scoring 397 with Jos Buttler and Ben Stokes out cheaply along with Jason Roy’s absence. Sri Lanka were all over the place in the opening few hours against Australia, and given Sri Lanka’s lack of control with the ball, England have an opportunity to repeat what they did to Afghanistan just a couple of days back. Back Jonny Bairstow and Joe Root to be in the runs again, with the middle order pouncing.

Also, how would England feel about not taking all 10 wickets against Afghanistan? The game was all but over at the innings break, but England weren’t at their best with the ball. There should be a desire to get back in the wickets here, up against a Sri Lankan middle order doing it tough. Can England see the back of the dangerous Kusal Perera early? What about Dimuth Karunaratne who is in good touch? Who will then help dominate in the middle overs?

CWC 2019 Match 27 – England v Sri Lanka Preview Dream11 – Eoin Morgan was on fire.

Key to a Sri Lanka win

Sri Lanka’s start to the run chase against Australia was phenomenal. The win probability was just in favour of Australia at the 15 over mark, with Dimuth Karunaratne and Kusal Perera on fire to build hope of a World Cup upset. However, bad moments outdid the good, as has been the case for the past few years, which Sri Lanka need to overcome here. Can they finally put together a complete batting display across 50 overs? Can Angelo Mathews find the form Sri Lanka desperately need him to?

Also, can Sri Lanka tame England’s strong batting? It is a tall ask, so like the batting, Sri Lanka need consistency across the innings. Lasith Malinga will be key in finding success, giving Sri Lanka a chance to put pressure on England’s middle order as early as possible. Then, can Sri Lanka keep some pressure on in the middle overs? Also, can they follow up their good death effort against Australia?
