ENG vs SL 3rd T20I Match Preview
England were the favourites going into this series, and as predicted, they have already won the series. The team looks very balanced both with the bat and ball. Their bowlers again bowled brilliantly in the last game and restricted the Lankans to a low score of just 111 in 20 overs. Adil Rashid has been bowling very well in this series and has picked up four wickets from 2 matches so far. Mark Wood also bowled pretty well in the last game and picked up 2 wickets from his four overs. Sam Curran and Chris Jordon also bowled well and picked up a wicket each. The team can bring in Moeen Ali, who is yet to play a game in this series.
Talking about their batting, their star batsman Jos Buttler was rested in the last game. Jason Roy and Jonny Bairstow opened the innings. Both the batters are yet to perform in this series but are quality players and can score big on their day. Malan has also looked dull in this series so far. Billings and Livingstone batted well in the last game and scored 24 and 29 runs, respectively.
Sri Lanka have already lost the series and have some major concerns to solve. Their batting department is struggling a lot and is unable to cross even the 130 marks. The openers are yet to give a good start for the team. Kusal Mendis batted decently in the last game and scored 39 runs, which helped the team reach 111. They will hope that the venue change can bring some changes in their fortune.
The Lankans bowled decently in the last game. Wanindu Hasaranga was their stand-out bowler who picked up two wickets from his 4 overs and was also very economical. Chameera and Binura Fernando also bowled well and picked up a wicket each. Udana will also be their key man in the death. He picked up one wicket in the last game.
The Lankans will hope that their batting department performs well in this game and can avoid a whitewash in Southampton.
