Sri Lanka is in a similar situation, with one win in four matches, losing to South Africa, Pakistan, and Australia but winning against the Netherlands.
When England and Sri Lanka face each other, the head-to-head record is almost even, with England winning 38 games and Sri Lanka 36 out of 78 matches. They’ve had three draws and one tie. In World Cup matches England has won 6 out of 11 games against Sri Lanka, with Sri Lanka winning 5. In their last World Cup encounter in 2019, Sri Lanka won by defending a total of 232.
The predicted fantasy team for this match includes players like Jonny Bairstow, Joe Root, and more. The match will be played in Bengaluru, a ground favoring bowlers and batsmen due to shorter boundaries. The weather forecast suggests no rain with a temperature of around 30 degrees and 68% humidity.
According to Google’s win probability, there’s a 74% chance that England will win. However, some sources think the team batting first will have an advantage. Sri Lanka might have a chance if they maintain their discipline from the previous match.
