ABOUT THE MATCH

After the first ODI of the 5 match series was washed out with England at 92/2 after 15 overs, both teams will be hoping it doesn’t rain when they meet 3 days later at the same venue.

Match Preview

The two teams have met 70 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

Newly appointed skipper Dinesh Chandimal will opt to go with the same team as the first ODI. Lasith Malinga was wicketless and went for over 7 runs in the 5 overs he bowled in the first ODI. He will want to improve his rhythm.

iconEngland Team News

Debutant Olly Stone – who is in place of pacer Liam Plunkett who is missing the first 3 matches to attend his wedding – just got to sit and watch his teammates from the sidelines as rain ended play. He will have to wait to make an impact.

England are slightly short on match practice in Lankan conditions with both their practice match as well as the first ODI getting washed out due to rain.

Pitch Conditions

 

Lanka was hoping for the moisture on the pitch to help them during the first ODI but it eventually became a case of too much moisture. Same could be the case on Saturday as the weather forecast suggests spells of rain. In Lanka when it rains, it continues for hours so there is a chance of this one getting washed out or curtailed at the very least.

Toss Prediction

 

The team winning the toss will elect to field first.

Our Match Prediction
