England vs Sri Lanka: Battle of Two Former Champions

Both these teams have won the T20 World Cup before, with England overcoming Sri Lanka in the last 4 on their way to the title in 2010. Sri Lanka have reached 3 finals, winning in 2014, but it’s England that will start as red-hot favorites in this contest being played in the UAE. While England have become a formidable white-ball team after the 2015 World Cup, Sri Lanka’s fortunes have slumped.

Both teams started the Super 12 stage with wins, with England especially impressive in thrashing the West Indies, the defending champions. But with Australia, the West Indies and South Africa also in the group and Bangladesh being dangerous floaters, this England-Sri Lanka cricket match could have a huge bearing on semi-final qualification. Whichever team wins will be halfway to the last 4, with the losers pushed back into the traffic jam.

England vs Sri Lanka Head to Head Stats

England have been the better team in Tests, but there was a long period in the 1990s and 2000s when Sri Lanka’s aggressive batting and skilful spin proved too much to handle for England in ODIs. England have won 3 of their 4 games in T20 World Cups.

Eoin Morgan: England Captain

Having played for Ireland at the 2007 World Cup, Morgan switched loyalties to England before the World T20 in 2009. He was handed the white-ball captaincy after a dismal 2015 World Cup performance of England, and he led England to the T20 World Cup final in 2016. But the crowning glory was winning the World Cup on home soil in 2019. Though much has been made of his poor batting form after the Indian T20 League, nobody doubts his leadership credentials.

Dasun Shanaka: Sri Lanka Captain

A medium-pace bowler who doubles up as an attacking lower-order batter, Shanaka is the latest player to inherit the captaincy as Sri Lanka’s selectors play musical chairs. In their glory years in the 1990s and 2000s, Shanaka might have struggled to get into the Lankan team. It’s a reflection of how badly Sri Lankan cricket’s fortunes have declined that they have as the captain a man with a single 5-wicket haul and no centuries in international cricket.
