England Cricket Team will return to action when they lock horns with a revamped Sri Lankan side for a three-match T20I series followed by as many ODIs. The Eoin Morgan-led side will be playing their first game since their tour of India.
Sri Lanka too haven’t played a T20I since March and the upcoming series will kick off their preparations for the upcoming T20 World Cup. The Islanders will bank on captain Kusal Perera, Kusal Mendia, Dhananjaya de Silva, all-rounder Wanindu Hasaranga, Nuwan Pradeep, and Niroshan Dickwella to deliver the goods.
On the other hand, England will look to fine-tune their skills. Jos Buttler and Jason Roy are likely to kick off the proceedings, with Jonny Bairstow batting in the middle. The presence of Dawid Malan, Morgan, Sam Curran, Moeen Ali, and others make England a team to beat in this format. They also have a formidable bowling line-up led by Mark Wood and Chris Woakes.
