SL vs SCO Dream11 Team | Scotland vs Sri Lanka Match Preview | Fantasy Team

Sri Lanka are in Scotland to prepare for the upcoming ICC World Cup. The Asian team will play two One Day International matches against the host nation before two warm-up matches in the World Cup. Understandably, Sri Lanka will be focused on gaining crucial match experience in the English conditions. Scotland, on the other hand, will be happy to compete against a team like Sri Lanka and learn in the process.

Scotland have a bunch of talented players, but they are far off the level at which World Cup teams are playing. However, they will take confidence from the fact that they have 5 of the last 7 matches at the venue. Their home advantage will also help them and they must aim to spring a surprise against the Lions.

The two teams have played against each other only on two occasions. Expectedly, Sri Lanka emerged as victors in both the matches.

Match Details: Competition – One Day International Series | Venue – Grange Cricket Club, Edinburgh | Date & Time – 18th May, 03:30 PM IST
