ENG vs SL 39th Match Probable winners:
With England’s recent record over Sri Lanka so impressive in this format, it will take a huge performance from Sri Lanka to get the win in this contest. After winning the 2022 Asia Cup a couple of months ago, you can never completely rule Sri Lanka out of any game. However, England’s bowling attack have been in excellent form. We expect them to cause Sri Lanka’s batters a lot of problems. Overall, we are backing England to win this match. Considering the team combination, England is expected to win this match.
