This is a very risky match. England has sealed the series and Eoin Morgan has said to give a game to everyone in the squad. So, a couple of changes are expected in the English playing11.
In wicketkeeper, Niroshan Dickwella will be a better choice. Coming to open the innings, Dickwell scored a fifty in the last game and contributed 36 runs in the second last encounter. He can help in gathering extra points with the bat as Jos Buttler comes in middle order to bat.
In batsmen, Jason Roy and Eoin Morgan are must-have picks from England. Both are in fine form and scoring runs in almost every game. Joe Root has also looked in fine form so far and can be considered as third English batsman. Roy has scored 41 and 45 in last two ODIs after returning for a duck in the first game. From Sri Lanka, Dinesh Chandimal, Dasun Shanaka and Sadeera Samarawickrama will be the safest bets.
Ben Stokes, Thisara Perera and Dhananjaya de Silva will be the right picks for the all-rounder.
In bowlers, a couple of changes are expected especially from England. So, Lasith Maling, Akila Dhananjaya and Chris Woakes will be the safest bets. You can also pick Adil Rashid, he is expected to retain his place.
