Cricket Ticket: England vs Sri Lanka Live Cricket – Sony LIV Sports Live Match Streaming – ENG vs SL 1st T20I Live Match | How to watch Eng vs SL Live Match Online?
England vs Sri Lanka Preview:
England and Sri Lanka are all set for their limited-overs campaign, which starts with the three-match T20I series on Wednesday. The Eoin-Morgan-captained Three Lions, being ICC’s no.1 ranked T20I team and playing in home conditions, are expected to start as the favourites.
The Lankans have strained in the format in the last few years and hence, are placed way down at eighth in the rankings. Back in March, they went to 10th ranked West Indies 1-2 in the three-match series. However, they can draw heart from their three T20I wins against the Brits in four games in the latter’s backyard.
England, earlier this year, lost the five-match series versus India 2-3. Going into the upcoming series, Jonny Bairstow has become uncertain due to an ankle sprain which he sustained during the ongoing T20 Blast.
England will take on Sri Lanka in the 1st of the 3-match T20I series, starting from 23rd June. England’s last T20I series was against India, where they lost the series by 3-2. They are a completely different side on home soil and will start as favourites for this match.
Meanwhile, Sri Lanka have lost their last 4 T20Is series and will be really tough for them as they tackle the mighty England side. Kusal Perera will lead the Lankan Lions in this tour. They have won only one match in their last 5 head-to-head contests against England, and it will be interesting how they perform in this match.
