ENG vs SL Dream11 and Fantasy Prediction
England:A ruthless performance after opting to bat first against England, with captain Morgan leading the way with a hundred that broke many records, including the one for most sixes by a batsman in an ODI. He smashed 17 sixes out of England’s 25 – also a team record by the way his 148 ensured that England scored their highest ever score in the world cup. In your Dream11 Team, we prefer you to take 7 players of England and 4 players of Srilanka as only a few players of them have performed in this tournament so far. You can take any batsman in the batting and wicketkeeper section as all of them are capable. In the bowling section, Jofra Archer and Chris Woakes would be the choice to go for. There is no update on Jason Roy injury so James Vince would continue to open.
Probable XI: Jonny Bairstow, James Vince, Joe Root, Eoin Morgan (c), Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler (wk), Moeen Ali/ Liam Plunkett, Chris Woakes, Adil Rashid, Jofra Archer, Mark Wood
Sri Lanka:The same old story for them, openers providing them more than solid start ( almost gave the middle order the game to finish) and then the middle order collapses and lost by a huge margin. They lost as many as 7 wickets in 42 runs. Both after Karunaratne and Kusal Perera gave great starts. Sri Lanka were 115/0 in the 16th over in chase of 335. What more do you want? The lack of intent/determination from the likes of Thirimanne, Mendis, and Mathews would have hurt the Lankan World cup badly. From the Dream11 Fantasy point of view in your small league, you take 4 players from the Srilanka. Openers Dimuth Karunaratne and Kusal Perera are must have in your team they are performing consistently. In the bowling section, Nuwan Pradeep and Malinga would be the choice. The x-factor for this match would be Angelo Mathews as he is the most experienced player in the team.
Probable XI: Lasith Malinga, Angelo Mathews, Isuru Udana, Thisara Perera, Lahiru Thirimanne, Nuwan Pradeep, Dhananjaya de Silva, Milinda Siriwardana, Dimuth Karunaratne (c), Kusal Perera (wk), Kusal Mendis
