ENG vs SL 3rd ODI Match Preview


England has dominated the tour completely and won all the matches played so far. Jonny Bairstow has been in decent form this series, and Jason Roy recovered from injury and batted brilliantly in the last game. Joe Root is in exceptional form as he scored two back-to-back fifties, and skipper Eoin Morgan after a long time finally batted well and scored a fifty.

The bowlers have been performing well and picking up wickets consistently. David Willey has picked wickets in both the matches and Sam Curran picked up five wickets in the last game. The other bowlers restricted the runs but have struggled to pick up wickets. England would be aiming for the whitewash by winning the final ODI.

Sri Lanka:

Sri Lanka had to face disappointment throughout the tour as they have lost all the matches. After a brilliant inning in the first match, Pathum Nissanka hasn’t played a big inning so far in his career, and skipper Kusal Perera got out for a duck in the second after a brilliant inning in the first match. Dhananjaya de Silva batted brilliantly but was unfortunate to miss his century by just nine runs, and Wanindu has played a decent inning in both games. Dasun Shanaka batted well but couldn’t score a fifty.

The bowlers performed well in the first match but couldn’t maintain consistency in the last game. Chameera has been their crucial bowler, but he, too, went wicketless in the previous game. Hasaranga and Karunaratne managed to pick up one wicket each.
