ENG vs SL Preview:
It would not be a surprise if, at times during this tour of England, Sri Lanka’s bowlers had cast suspicious glances across the dressing room at their batsmen. After all, in three of the four white-ball matches so far, Sri Lanka’s bowlers have had periods of play when they have been on top of England’s much-heralded batting line-up. All of those matches ended in defeat, of course, but had Sri Lanka’s batsmen been able to contribute more, a different result may have been possible. It has been a one-sided tour so far but at least half of Sri Lanka’s team has been operating well.
In the second T20I in Cardiff, for instance, England were reduced to 36 for 4 but were only chasing a paltry 111 which meant they had time to sit in and recover, take the sting out of Sri Lanka’s bowlers and ease their way to the target. Even another 30 runs would have tested them far more. In the opening ODI in Durham, it was a similar story. After Jonny Bairstow’s initial blitz, Sri Lanka took four wickets for 26 runs and were back in the game. England, however, were never in any real danger because they were only chasing 185. Again, another 50 runs might have made things interesting. In the final T20I, Sri Lanka bowled first and claimed five for 19 at the back end of the innings to keep England’s total within reach. Then they were bundled out for just 91.
Pitch Condition & Weather Report:
The Oval surface is one of the best for batting in the country which should at least give Sri Lanka’s beleaguered batsmen some cause for optimism. They could not ask for a better pitch to find their form again. The forecast for the game is good, with sun and temperatures in the mid-20s expected although whoever wins the toss will probably want to field first. Of the last eight completed day-night games at The Oval, seven have been won by the side batting second.
Probable best Players of the match
Top Picks – Batsmen
Joe Root was the saviour for England in the 1st ODI. He took up the responsibility in the run-chase when wickets were tumbling at the other end and scored an important 79* runs to give his team a 1-0 lead in the series.
Dasun Shanaka was dismissed by an absolutely unplayable deliver in the 1st ODI for just one run. He is a decent player and should be included in your fantasy teams.
Top Picks – All-Rounders
Chris Woakes bowled exceptionally well with the new ball in the 1st ODI by not giving any sort of room for the Sri Lankan batters. He was the player of the match for his figures of 4 for 18 in his 10 overs.
Wanindu Hasaranga played some fantastic shots in the 1st ODI and scored his 3rd half-century. He was hitting through the line very well until he was dismissed for 54 runs from 65 balls.
Top Picks – Bowlers
David Willey had an excellent game in the 1st ODI. He swung the ball both ways and picked up 3 wickets at an economy of 4.40.
Dushmantha Chameera is the pick of the bowlers for Sri Lanka in the 1st ODI. He utilized the extra pace in the wicket and scalped 3 crucial wickets.
Top Picks – Wicketkeepers
Kusal Perera was too strong at the square of the wicket and played a captain’s in the 1st ODI. He scored an important 73 runs for his side.
Jonny Bairstow was timing the ball really well in the 1st ODI, until he dragged onto the stumps when he was batting on 43. His innings comprised 6 fours and a six.
