England tour of Sri Lanka
Sri Lanka vs England Only T20 Match Preview
After a massive 219 run win in the last inconsequential ODI, Sri Lanka would be looking to carry the momentum when they host England at R Premadasa Stadium, Colombo on Saturday evening for the only T20I.
The 5-match ODI series has been won by England by 3-1 lead and now both the sides will play a solitary T20I before locking horns in the 3 match Test series. The 3-match test series starts from November 06.
In the last ODI, Sri Lanka came out with all-around performance and gave a mammoth 367-run target to the visitors who were without their regular skipper Eoin Morgan. In response, England lost their top three wickets in just 2 overs and what followed afterwards was a series of wicket fall. However, Ben Stokes (67 of 60) and Moen Ali (37 of 37) tried resurrecting the innings but in front of Akila Dhananjaya and Dushmantha Chameera’s turn, England only managed paltry 132-9 before the rain came to rescue. As per the DLS method, Sri Lanka won the game by 219 runs.
Previous T20 appearances:
England played a 3-match T20I series against India in their home and lost the series by 1-2 despite giving a tough fight throughout the series.
Sri Lanka played a solitary T20I with South Africa in which they registered 3 wickets win over the Proteas.
