- Prediction by Benny Thompson

England won by 7 Wickets (Match reduced to 21 overs per-side due to rain)

ABOUT THE MATCH

Rain interrupted both the matches so far in Kandy but England were able to etch out a result in the second one through the D/L method and currently lead 1-0 coming into the third match of the series.

Match Preview

71 ODI meetings have happened between the two sides, with England winning 35 and Lanka winning 33. But the home side need to buck up and improve right now if they are to have any chance in this series. A loss here means they can only draw the series after this match.

Lasith Malinga came back to top form in the second ODI, picking up 5 wickets. He did well to limit England to 278/9 after they looked like they would go well past 300 at one point.

But the Lankan batsmen let them down in the chase, losing wickets regularly as they chased a revised total after the rain interruption.

iconEngland Team News

Eoin Morgan and Joe Root led the charge for England with the bat. None of the other batsmen scored 30 or more which could be a concern and the team will expect others to contribute here.

Pacer Olly Stone who made his debut in the first match finally got to bowl in this one and claimed his first ODI wicket. More will be expected for him in this match.

Pitch Conditions

 

Weather forecast suggests that rain can be expected at Kandy as well. A small rain interruption would support the pacers on the Pallekele pitch as it would slow down the deterioration on the track. But a long interruption could even end the match in another no result.

Toss Prediction

 

The team winning the toss will elect to field.

Our Match Prediction

If rain permits, England should win this match and take a 2-0 lead.
