The England team, till to date, has played 159 T20s. Out of these 159 matches, England was victorious in 78 matches while 68 matches were those in which they lost and 2 ended in a tie. Recent performance of England’s team has been exceptional, especially in the T20 format. They won a 7 match T20I series against Pakistan just before the World Cup. Even in the T20 World Cup 2021, they played some brilliant cricket and reached the semi-finals.

Alex Hales is back in the squad. So, Jos Buttler and Alex Hales will be opening the innings for England and both have provided England with explosive starts in the past. Jos Buttler has been in an ideal form in every format. Two of the best sloggers of the ball are Dawid Malan, though he is struggling to perform in this event, and Liam Livingstone. They have serious strength in their bat and can hit some magnificent shots.

 Harry Brook, a youngster is a new entry to the English team. While In pace bowling, they have the likes of Sam Curran, Mark Wood, who bowled one of the fastest delivery of this event and Chris Woakes while the spin bowling will be handled by Adil Rashid and Moeen Ali.

Although the Sri Lankan team is out of the World Cup, they’ll be looking to end their tournament on a good note. Moreover, their win will benefit Australia as their qualification for the semi-final depends on Sri Lanka.

Sri Lankan players who were in their best form in Asia Cup 2022 have failed to produce an extraordinary performance in this event. They were eyeing Kusal Mendis, who provides opening overs with the bat, to Wanindu Hasaranga, who can bowl and bat too. While another brilliant opening batter is Pathum Nissanka. Hasaranga was the 2nd highest wicket taker in the Asia Cup 2022 and T20 World Cup 2021. Bhanuka Rajapaksa provides Sri Lanka with much needed firepower in the middle order. Captain Shanaka is a powerful hitter of the ball who bats at middle order. Pramod Madhushan and Dilshan Madhushanka will handle the pace bowling.
