Arch-rivals Australia have made the equation easy for England. With net run rate out of the picture after another poor performance by the hosts, Jos Buttler’s team need a win by any margin to confirm their passage to the semi-finals.

On paper, they are the favourites to beat Sri Lanka. But, this contest has the potential to go sour for England if they are off their game, with the Lions showing excellent signs of progress in 2022, including the Asia Cup triumph back in September. Indeed, the SCG surface brings the skillful Sri Lanka spinners into play, so England’s batting lineup needs to be switched on.

However, how motivated will Dasun Shanaka’s team be given they can no longer qualify for the semi-finals? Australia’s win yesterday means Sri Lanka are out, so how they approach this match will be interesting to see. Will they shine with the pressure off? Or will their minds be on what’s to come after the tournament? We shall find out.

ENG vs SL Possible Playing XI

Chris Jordan (17 wickets in nine matches) has a great record vs Sri Lanka. But, it is difficult to fit him into this England side.

If an early wicket falls, Dawid Malan (93 runs avg. 23.25 vs Sri Lanka) will come in. If there is a strong opening stand, expect England to elevate the likes of Moeen Ali or Liam Livingstone up the order.

England: 1. Jos Buttler (c & wk), 2. Alex Hales, 3. Dawid Malan, 4. Ben Stokes, 5. Moeen Ali, 6. Harry Brook, 7. Liam Livingstone, 8. Sam Curran, 9. Chris Woakes, 10. Mark Wood, 11. Adil Rashid

Sri Lanka: 1. Pathum Nissanka, 2. Kusal Mendis (wk), 3. Dhananjaya de Silva, 4. Charith Asalanka, 5. Bhanuka Rajapaksa, 6. Dasun Shanaka (c), 7. Wanindu Hasaranga, 8. Chamika Karunaratne, 9. Maheesh Theekshana, 10. Kasun Rajitha, 11. Pramod Madushan
