ABOUT THE MATCH

England start their 9 match tour of Sri Lanka which will feature matches in all 3 formats with the ODI at Dambulla.

Match Preview

The two teams have met 69 times in ODIs but have shared the spoils so far, with England winning 34 and Lanka winning 33. Lanka were winless during their 5 match ODI series in England in 2016, losing 3, tying one and with the fifth one ending without a result. They will want to fix that in home conditions.

iconSri Lanka Team News

Lanka have dropped skipper Angelo Mathews from the ODI and T20I squad for the lack of fitness and have named Dinesh Chandimal as captain.

Nuwan Pradeep is back in the ODI squad as is Lasith Malinga who impressed with his comeback during the recently concluded Asia Cup. Having been knocked out of the Asia Cup in just 3 days with defeats to Bangladesh and Afghanistan, Lanka will be keen to put a better show here.

iconEngland Team News

Ben Stokes and Alex Hales are back in the squad for the first time since being charged for an incident outside a nightclub in December 2017. Pacer Liam Plunkett is set to miss the first 3 matches for his wedding while all-rounder David Willey has been dropped because of a back injury.

Olly Stone has been brought in as Plunkett’s replacement. Tom Curran is in the squad and is keen to establish himself in the One Day set up with the 2019 World Cup at home just months away.

Pitch Conditions

 

There is some grass on the Rangiri Dambulla pitch which will allow the batsmen some purchase. The last ODI in this stadium a couple of months ago featuring Lanka and South Africa saw just under 500 runs and that could be the case again. No hint of rain with cloudy skies expected.

Toss Prediction

 

The team winning the toss will most likely choose to field.

Our Match Prediction
