England will start the 3rd T20 International match against Sri Lanka at The Rose Bowl Stadium in Southampton on June 26 (Saturday) as favorites after winning both the T20 Internationals convincingly.
England would be pleased with the performance of their bowlers in both the T20 Internationals so far. Mark Wood and Adil Rashid were pick-of-bowlers as they picked two wickets each to restrict Sri Lanka for paltry 111 in 20 overs in the 2nd T20 International, played at Cardiff on Thursday. England’s middle-order came to the forefront and rescued their side after a mini top-order collapse. Liam Livingstone took his team home, with a 5-wickets victory.

On Saturday, in the third T20 International, the Sri Lankans will try to avoid a humiliating white-wash, as the hosts will look to clean sweep the series 3-0. England will be without the services of their wicket-keeper batsman Jos Buttler, who has been ruled out due to calf problem.
