SL vs ENG Dream11 Match Predictions
England tour of Sri Lanka
After a solid start from Jason Roy and Jonny Bairstow, rain pelted down at Dambulla in the first ODI and the game was called off. Now, both the teams will once again reload at the same ground to play the second ODI on Saturday morning in hope of a full game.
Sri Lanka opted to bowl after winning the toss and England were 92-2 at the end of 15 overs before the rain interrupted the play. While second and fifth ODI have a reserve day, no reserve day was assigned for the first ODI.
As far as changes are concerned, both the teams are expected to remain unchanged for the upcoming encounter. Olly Stone earned his maiden ODI cap for England and is expected to feature in the second ODI. England might go with three spinners again, while hosts chose to go with just two.
Venue- Rangiri Dambulla International Stadium, Dambulla

*As per the last game
In wicketkeeper, both N Dickwella and J Butler are good choices. However, Niroshan Dickwella will be slightly better as he comes up in the batting order.
In batsmen, Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow and Eoin Morgan will be perfect from England while Kusal Perera and Skipper Dinesh Chandimal will be good choices from Sri Lanka. Upul Tharanga and Joe Root can also be considered. J Roy and Bairstow gave a good start to England in the first ODI.
In all-rounder, Thisara Perera and Moen Ali will be perfect. Both play an instrumental role with both bat and ball to their respective sides.
In bowling, Lasith Malinga, Akila Dhananjaya and Chris Woakes will be decent picks.
*The wicket is expected to offer some turn so you can pick one or two extra spinners.
