Welcome to ENG vs SL Live Streaming for Today’s 1st T20I Match. Sri Lanka will open their campaign in England with a shorter format. The series opener of the three-match T20I series will be played at Sophia Gardens. Kheltalk presents before you the timing, live streaming details, and channel lists of the first ENG vs SL T20I.
England will host Sri Lanka for three-match ODI and T20I series starting on 24th June. The hosts look like a much better side in comparison to the visitors, who have just lost their last T20I series against West Indies by 2-1. On the other hand, hosts also look pretty much off track as far as their recent past performance is concerned.
England lost their last T20I series against India by 3-2. Also, they suffered a Test series defeat against New Zealand in home conditions by 1-0. On papers, England simply has an edge on the papers, Sri Lanka might manage in successfully turning the tables towards them.
England has announced a strong squad for the three-match T20I series against Sri Lanka. The hosts have a strong opening pair that consists of Jason Roy and Jos Buttler. There are chances that they might pick Jonny Bairstow, who is expected to be fit before the series opener.
In middle-order, they have the services of Dawid Malan, who is known as the backbone of England’s batting unit. He has done a great job at that position overseas and home conditions with consistency. He smashed 384 runs in the last 10 games at an average of 48.00.
Jos Buttler is also in smoky form with the bat in the international circuit. He is averaging 57.50 in the last 10 10 innings for England in the shorter format. Coming to England’s bowling, they have the likes of Chris Jordan and Adil Rashid, who have troubled opponent batsmen with their brilliant bowling. However, still England will miss the services of Jofra Archer, who sustained an elbow injury during his trip to India.
Sri Lanka- SL
Sri Lanka is going through its transitional phase due to which they have suffered back-to-back series defeats in the past. The islanders are lacking in their consistency to perform better in international cricket for since long. They will have to come up with the best in order to get off the mark with a win against England in their home.
Sri Lanka will bank on their skipper Kusal Perera, who has amassed 206 runs in the last 7 innings. His strike rate in the last 7 games is around 135. Danushka Gunathilaka is another batsman to watch out for from Sri Lanka. He has done a great job with the bat in the shorter format and will be a key batsman for Sri Lanka.
It is very well known that England batsmen face problems while playing against wrist spinners. And, Wanindu Hasranga will be a key wicket-taking bowler for Sri Lanka in away conditions against the English side.
