ABOUT THE MATCH

After England sealed a 3-1 win in the rain curtailed 5 match ODI series, the two teams will play a solitary T20I before taking each other on in a 3 match Test series. Despite England winning 3 matches in a row, Lanka have pulled some respect back after a mammoth 219 run win (D/L method) in the final ODI.

Match Preview

Sri Lanka and England have played 8 T20Is so far with both teams winning 4. The last time these two teams met was two years ago in Southampton where England registered an 8 wicket win.

After struggling in the ODI series, the Lankan batsmen came alive with the top four scoring 50s to score a mammoth 366 in the final ODI. They will hope for more of the same in the T20I installment of the series.

Their hopes will be pinned on Lasith Malinga who, after impressing in the ODI format since his comeback in the Asia Cup, will be making his return to the T20 format after over a year. The shortest format is where he is most lethal and he could rip through the England attack.

Despite winning the ODI series, England will be jolted by how effortlessly the Lankan batting and bowling picked them apart in the final ODI. The likes of Joe Root and Eoin Morgan have their task cut out against Malinga. Weathering that storm would be the key to their success.

Pitch Conditions

 

Rain has been the most consistent performer in this ill timed series and there are predictions for rain in this match as well. Dew will be another factor and the team batting second would struggle against the spin.

Toss Prediction

 

Winning the toss and batting first would be crucial on this Colombo pitch.

Our Match Prediction

It is even stevens here but Lanka have the edge and could win it thanks to Malinga.
