England Vs Sri Lanka Match Preview
England is one of the strongest sides while entering the world cup. They showed their dominance in the tournament with their performance. But, a rain-effected match against Ireland dents their momentum, and they are still fighting for a place in the semi-finals. The critical game between England and Australia could not happen due to heavy rain. The good thing for the team is their top-order batters Jos Buttler, and Alex Hales came into form in the last match against New Zealand. David Malan has scored some runs along with Liam Livingstone.
But other batters could deliver a good performance with the bat. In the bowling lineup, Sam Curran proved himself a gem in the death bowling. Mark Wood is there with the team to bowl his 150+ KPH fireballs. Spin bowlers Rashid Khan and Liam Livingstone also bowl well in the previous games. England vs Sri Lanka World Cup 2022 Match Predictions would only be completed if we mentioned the all-rounder Chris Woakes and Ben Stokes in the bowling and batting departments.
The Sri Lankan team has been good through the qualifying round and even played solid cricket in the main rounds of the world cup. The Sri Lankan team has four points in this world cup so far. So, they must win this game to take their points counting to six and stay relevant for consideration in the semi-finals. Sri Lankan has good players at the top that also perform from time to time. Pathum Nissanka, Kusal Mendis, and Charith Asalanka at the top are great batsmen for the team. They have their captain Danajaya de Silva, Dasun Shanaka, and Bhanuka Rajapaksa in the middle.
Shanaka and Rajapaksya played the anchoring role in Sri Lanka’s Asia cup win earlier this year. The bowling line from Sri Lanka is a concern after their key bowlers got injured in the tournament. England vs Sri Lanka World Cup 2022 Match Predictions will involve the best bowler from Sri Lanka, but it would not be a fast bowler. The bowling line is dependent on Wanindu Hasaranga and Maheesh Theekshana. Lahiru Kumara, Kasun Rajitha, and Pramod Madushan will play as fast bowlers. They can surprise any opposition on any ground.
