SL vs ENG Last Five Matches Stats
Here are the stats for the teams SL vs ENG:-
Pitch Report of Galle International Stadium
The pitch of Galle International Stadium is a spin paradise and since 2018, spinners have picked as much as twice the wickets as the pacers. We can expect the same model here as well. The pitch is a typical sub-continent one.
Weather Report Of Galle
Galle in Sri Lanka will enjoy a good cloudy day on Thursday and there might be scattered rains but that shouldn’t be a big worry. The temperature is expected to be 29-degree Celsius and the humidity to be 81%.
Fantasy Cricket Expert Tips:
As there will be 81% of humidity, we can expect the ball to react accordingly. While Sri Lanka will be preferring more spinners, England have already hinted that they will be going with more number of pacers which could make sense because of the climate.
Sri Lanka Squad
The hosts are coming into this series after a twin loss to South Africa and they fared real poor that they might be rethinking a few of the combinations here.
Sri Lanka Squad: Dimuth Karunaratne (captain), Kusal Perera, Kusal Mendis, Minod Bhanuka, Dushmantha Chameera, Dinesh Chandimal, Dhananjaya de Silva, Niroshan Dickwella, Lasith Embuldeniya, Asitha Fernando, Oshada Fernando, Vishwa Fernando, Santhush Gunathilake, Wanindu Hasaranga, Lahiru Kumara, Suranga Lakmal, Dilshan Madushanka, Angelo Mathews, Dilruwan Perera, Kasun Rajitha, Dasun Shanaka, Lahiru Thirimanne
Sri Lanka News :
They are looking good on papers but their team never really performed to their fullest in the recently concluded series against South Africa while that is a worrying sign, the team will be glad to be at home again and we can expect a good start from the players at their own den.
