England vs Sri Lanka Match Analysis

Only one game remains for both teams, and four semi-finalists must still be determined, demonstrating how hard this quick form remains. England will meet Sri Lanka in the 39th T20 World Cup match at Sydney Cricket Ground in order to advance to the semi-finals. England is second in Group 1 with 5 points after two victories and one defeat in four Super 12 matches. Due to the weather, the team’s one match ended in a tie and was awarded one point. Sri Lanka won two games and lost two others to finish fourth in the same group with four points. It will be an elimination match for Sri Lanka, whilst a victory for England will guarantee their place in the semis after taking into account the run rate component of the other teams in the division. English skipper Joss Buttler returned to form it versus Kiwis and was ready to face the Sri Lankan spin combo of Wanindu Hasaranga de Silva and Maheesh Theekshana on Sydney’s ground.

England vs Sri Lanka Team Previews


Following a disappointing setback due to rain versus Ireland, England made an impact against New Zealand in their last encounter. They will meet Sri Lanka for the last occasion in the Super 12 and will be hoping to seal their place in the top two. In the last match against New Zealand, Joss Buttler chose to bat first, and both openers provided a promising start to England’s innings.  Jos Butler and Alex Hales  set up an 81-run partnership for the first wicket. Liam Livingstone also contributed with the bat significantly. The bowling unit was led by Sam Curran and Mark Wood, who made early strides for the squad while protecting the goal. Sam Curran’s vital wickets of Finn Allen and the in-form Glenn Phillips reversed the tide for the English team. Chris Woakes then managed the strain in the last overs, taking two wickets and leading England to a 20-run victory. The team appears to be well-balanced, with strong bowling and batting order depth. Key all-rounders like Moeen Ali and Ben Stokes have yet to produce for their squad, and the skipper is expecting notable displays against Sri Lanka on a larger platform of the World Cup.

Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka’s performance in the present T20 world cup has been a ride of a lifetime. After two straight defeats versus Australia and New Zealand, they won their last match versus Afghanistan. They will now play England in the league’s ultimate phase at Sydney Cricket Ground. Wanindu Hasaranga de Silva’s vital performance of three wickets for thirteen runs in four overs helped Sri Lanka limit rivals to 144 runs in 20 overs. Lahiru Kumala’s speed also resulted in two wickets. Despite the loss of openers Pathum Nissanka and Kusal Mendis early in the game, Dhananjaya de Silva managed the strain while pursuing a 145-run goal. Dhananjaya de Silva scored 66 runs off 42 balls and was joined by Bhanuka Rajapaksa, who struck 18 runs off 14 balls. These two innings made it simple for Sri Lanka to chase down the score in the 19th over, conserving six wickets. Sri Lanka’s forthcoming match against England is now or never. The Sri Lankan pace unit has a huge duty to put stress on England’s top-order hitters. In addition, the spinning combo of Wanindu Hasaranga de Silva and Maheesh Theekshana must perform if Sri Lanka is to defeat England.
