England vs Sri Lanka preview

The stage is set for a pivotal clash in the ICC Men’s ODI World Cup as England take on Sri Lanka in Bangalore. Both teams have faced their fair share of challenges in this tournament, making this matchup even more intriguing from a betting perspective.

England’s World Cup campaign took a severe hit in their last outing against South Africa, where they suffered a humiliating 229-run loss. Their decision to bowl first in sweltering Mumbai conditions backfired as South Africa posted a daunting total of 399. England’s batting lineup collapsed, with their top four contributing just 23 runs.

As they sit ninth in the standings with a concerning net run rate, England’s hopes of reaching the semi-finals hang by a thread. Expect major changes in their lineup as they aim for redemption.

Sri Lanka managed to secure their first victory in the tournament by defeating the Netherlands with a five-wicket win. The opening bowlers, Dilshan Madushanka and Kasun Rajitha, played a pivotal role by grabbing four wickets each. With the bat, Sadeera Samarawickrama’s unbeaten 91 ensured a successful chase.

Though their semi-final chances are slim, Sri Lanka could still emerge as a threat to the top contenders at this World Cup.


England vs Sri Lanka match predictions

Despite their shaky performance, England enters this match as heavy favourites. With a more talented squad than Sri Lanka and a strong incentive to revive their World Cup campaign, backing England to win is a reasonable bet at odds of -277.78 with Neds.

England opener Jonny Bairstow has a remarkable average of over 45 in ODI cricket. This match could be the perfect opportunity for him to find his form. Consider placing a bet on Bairstow as the top England runscorer at favourable odds of +350 with leading sports betting sites.

Sri Lanka’s Kusal Mendis has been in excellent form throughout the World Cup. Despite missing out in the previous match, he remains a key figure in Sri Lanka’s batting lineup. A wager on Kusal Mendis to top score for the Lankans is available at odds of +333 with top cricket bookmakers.
