When and Where to Watch England vs Sri Lanka Live Streaming, Match Preview, Timings, and Pitch Report for 3rd T20I?
ENG vs SL Preview:
England have already taken an unassailable 2-0 lead in their three-match T20I series against Sri Lanka. The Brits dominated at the Sophia Gardens in Cardiff and won both games while tracking down modest targets.
The last and final T20I is scheduled to take place on Saturday, June 26 at the Rose Bowl in Southampton. The Lankans have plenty to think about, especially about their batting woes.
In the last match, the visitors’ bowlers tried their hearts out while defending a low score after the batters faltered. In Southampton, Lanka and the Three Lions have locked horns in two T20Is with both teams coming out trumps once.
England will take on Sri Lanka in the third and final T20I of the series on Saturday. England are already leading 2-0 and will look to wrap up the series 3-0 without giving any opportunity for the visitors. They might look to experiment in the final match and test their bench strength.
On the other hand, Sri Lanka has already lost the series and they will be playing to avoid the humiliating whitewash. Batting has been their major concern and they will definitely make some changes in their eleven.
Pitch Condition & Weather Report:
The pitch in Southampton has been fairly good for batting over the years. An average score of 166 suggests that a competitive game seems to be on the cards. In the last two matches at the venue, the team, batting second won, and hence, chasing should be the way forward. There are chances of rain around 1 PM and 2 PM and hence, there could be a couple of interruptions.
It’s a balanced surface, where both batters and bowlers will get equal help. Batting will become much easier in the 2nd half of the match. Quick bowlers will play a massive role in the powerplay.
Avg score: 166 (8 T20Is in Southampton)
Record of chasing teams: Won – 4, Lost – 4, N/R – 0
Probable best batsman of the match
Jason Roy– England
Jason Roy would be disappointed after he got out to Dushmantha Chameera in the last game. He was batting on 36 off 22 at a strike rate of 163.64 with four fours and one six.
He was also involved in an 80-run stand for the opening wicket with Player of the Match Buttler. The right-hander would be looking to make his start count and get a match-winning knock under his belt.
Wanindu Hasaranga– Sri Lanka
Wanindu Hasaranga has been a revelation for Sri Lanka in limited-overs cricket in the last one and half years. In the T20I format, he has shown his class mostly. In the first match, the England batters were circumspect while facing him.
In four overs, the leg-spinner gave away only 12 runs at an economy of three, albeit he couldn’t get a wicket. Hasaranga, however, would be looking to make amends with the bat.
