ENG vs SL Match Preview
The 1st match of the ODI series between Sri Lanka and England will be played on Tuesday, 29th of June at Riverside Ground, Chester-le-Street.
Sri Lanka didn’t have a great T20I series where they were swept 0-3 by England. They have faced an embarrassing loss on all three occasions. Starting fresh from ODI, the Lankans would be desperately waiting to grab a win and start their ODI campaign on a winning note.
Well, Sri Lanka’s complications are not just limited to the field as their three main players, on Monday were suspended for breaching the Covid-19 protocols.
England, on the other hand, is ranked fourth in the ODI format and they will be eager to climb up in the rankings. They are coming off a clean sweep against Sri Lanka in the T20I series and now they will be eyeing another series win against an inexperienced Lankan side.
