MAIN / Cricket / Tournaments / Sri Lanka vs. England: Make the Right Predictions in Matches Between Two Great Teams

Sri Lanka and England have quite the history in cricket. The Lankan Lions were the newest team to win the ODI World Cup just 15 years after gaining their Test status. The English, on the other hand, took the longest — taking a massive 142 years since playing their first Test to win the same trophy. Nevertheless, the two teams have had some iconic clashes over the years, with plenty of bets being made. Next time they meet, you can place bets on them online with Parimatch.

Sri Lanka vs. England Upcoming Matches

Although the two teams do not have any upcoming bilateral fixtures at the time of writing, there is a real possibility of them meeting in the T20 World Cup should Sri Lanka top their qualifier group. Considering the teams they will have to beat to do so, it’s almost a given — at least on paper. Should these conditions be satisfied, the match between Sri Lanka and England will be held on November 5, 2022.

SL vs ENG: Sri Lanka Squad

Dasun Shanaka (c), Danushka Gunathilaka, Pathum Nissanka, Kusal Mendis, Charith Asalanka, Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Ashen Bandara, Praveen Jayawickrama, Chamika Karunaratne, Dilshan Madushanka, Matheesha Pathirana, Nuwanidu Fernando, Dinesh Chandimal. Dhananjaya de Silva, Wanindu Hasaranga, Maheesh Theekshana, Jeffrey Vandersay, Prabath Jayasuriya.

The island nation is well-known for churning out some of the best spinners the world has seen, and their bowlers will be taking center-stage once more. If the pitch has any semblance of turn available, you can be sure Sri Lankan bowlers will find and exploit it. With a modern crop of fast bowlers also joining the fray, the 2014 T20 World Cup winners will have a decent pace attack as well.

Batting is another department the Lankans have recently seen a resurgence in, with some decent youth talent coming in to replenish the ranks following the departure of some legendary greats. They’re not quite at the same level yet — or close — but they seem to be improving with every game.

SL vs. ENG: England Squad

Jos Buttler (c), Moeen Ali, Jonathan Bairstow, Adil Rashid, Jason Roy, Phil Salt, Reece Topley, David Willey, Harry Brook, Sam Curran, Richard Gleeson, Chris Jordan, Liam Livingstone, Dawid Malan.

With Bazball spurring on a revival of England’s Test glory, the white ball squad will be looking to give the Barmy Army more reasons to cheer. Despite the absence of Jofra Archer, England’s fast bowling is still serviceable, and although they’re far from top-tier spinners, Adil Rashid and Moeen Ali are both decent in a pinch.

Where England excels is their batting. Boasting some of the hardest-hitting batters in the world, the inventors of cricket itself are a force to be reckoned with. Although still somewhat weak against good spin, the problem seems to have been ameliorated in recent years, and you can be sure that the English will be looking for their first ever T20 World Cup title.

Betting Opportunities for Sri Lanka vs. England

If you’re looking for lucrative betting opportunities regarding cricket, you need not look any further, as Parimatch has you covered with their active betting markets and amazing odds.

What makes Parimatch’s offering more beneficial to bettors compared to its competitors is its well-researched and curated betting markets. If you’re keen on betting on Sri Lanka vs. England match, here is a short guide on what opportunities you can make the best of.

Match Winner

The vast majority of bettors prefer to make predictions on the winners of matches. Basically, just choose who you think will win and (hopefully) win cash.

Toss Winner

Half an hour before the start of a cricket match, the home captain will toss a coin into the air, and the visiting captain must choose either head or tails. The captain who correctly predicts the outcome of the toss has the privilege to choose whether to bat or bowl. Here, punters can bet on the outcome of the toss.

Top Batter

The top batter betting market, also known as Top Runs Scorer, allows bettors to predict who will score the most runs in the game. This is exactly as simple as it sounds but can be tricky to guess as statistics can be misleading, and there’s no real way to predict how well a batter will play on any given day.

Betting Tips for SL vs. ENG

Although most people think that betting completely depends on luck, there are certainly many factors you can consider to improve your chances of winning bets. Here are a few common tactics.

Look up Weather Conditions

Cricket is heavily reliant on the elements, and a rainy day can change the course of a match. Make sure you look up what kind of weather the universe will present the teams with on the day of the match.

Playing XI

Regardless of who’s in the squad, playing XI is all that matters on any given day, barring any players getting concussions. Make sure you know exactly who’s playing before committing to any wagers.

Pitch Conditions

Even the greatest batters can’t make the best of a cracked pitch with good spinners, while even the best bowlers can’t exploit a flat track against good batters. Find out what the pitch conditions are like as early as possible.
