ENG vs SL Dream11 Match Preview
It’s an important game for England. They are unofficially through to the semi-finals if they win this match and they’ll be knocked out if they lose. Jos Buttler and Alex Hales returning to form will be very relieving for them. The middle order has been in decent form but there is room for improvement. Ben Stokes’ poor form is a big concern for them.
The bowlers have been in excellent form, especially Sam Curran and Mark Wood. Chris Woakes has been in top form as well. Adil Rashid has been below average and they’ll expect him to bounce back in this match. England looks very balanced as a team and they’ll surely win this game if they play as a team.

Sri Lanka, meanwhile, is out of the semi-finals race but they’ll look to win this game and end their campaign on a positive note. Their batting unit has been very inconsistent. The likes of Bhanuka Rajapaksa and Charith Asalanka must take responsibility with the bat. Dasun Shanaka also needs to start scoring some runs.
The bowlers have been in good form, especially the two spinners - Wanindu Hasaranga and Maheesh Theekshana. Both of them have bowled well up until now. The Sri Lankan pacers must be on their toes in this match.
